DSM Events are reporting to the OS Event Console. Is there a way to prevent this?
CA Client Automation 12.0, 12.0 SP1, 12.5, 12.5 SP1, 12.8, 12.8 FP1
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.
