Summary: 

DSM Events are reporting to the OS Event Console. Is there a way to prevent this?


Environment:  

CA Client Automation 12.0, 12.0 SP1, 12.5, 12.5 SP1, 12.8, 12.8 FP1


Instructions: 

Event log destination in DSM can be configured to report all DSM events to the CCS Event Console or the OS Application Event log or a file log.

This can be configured using the Default Computer Policy->DSM->Common Components->Event Logging->Eventlog: File Destination policy.

A value of 2 will redirect the events to the OS Event Application log and a value of 6 will redirect the events to the OS Event Application and the Unicenter Event Console logs.

Changing the 'Eventlog: File Destination' to a value that does not redirect events to the OS Application Event log will prevent the OS Application Event log from being filled with DSM events.
