Background:
This is part of normal operations, as the spooler has not had time to initialize yet. It happens if you turn audit on and when unable to send the audit message (I'm starting...) to the spooler, the controller will send the message directly to the hub.
Instructions:
This is not an error and the messages can be safely ignored.
 
Additional Information:
To validate there are no connection issues, ensure the probe shows as "green" in the IM console.
You can use the probe utility also to validate.
Using IM console, press CTRL-P with the controller highlighted.
In the probe utility, select "check_hub" and click the green arrow.
