No alarm generated for the Power Status Change event id 0x002104b2 in Spectrum


Out of the box the event Power Status Change event id 0x002104b2 does not generate an alarm.


Use the Event Configuration tool to modify the Power Status Change event id 0x002104b2 to generate an alarm.

Additional Notes:

The Power Status Change event id 0x002104b2 originates from the cefcPowerStatusChange trap sent by the device to Spectrum. This traps is defined in the CISCO-ENTITY-FRU-CONTROL-MIB as follows:

cefcPowerStatusChange NOTIFICATION-TYPE

    OBJECTS         {




    STATUS          current


        "The cefcFRUPowerStatusChange notification indicates that

        the power status of a FRU has changed. The varbind for this

        notification indicates the entPhysicalIndex of the FRU,

        and the new operational-status of the FRU."

   ::= { cefcMIBNotifications 2 }


This trap is configured in the $SPECROOT/SS/CsVendor/Cisco_Router/AlertMap file as follows:

# cefcPowerStatusChange                                 # cefcFRUPowerOperStatus               0x002104b2,0)\

                                                        # cefcFRUPowerAdminStatus



The following is the $SPECROOT/SG-Support/CsEvFormat/Event002104b2_en_US file:

{d "%w- %d %m-, %Y - %T"} - Power Status Change Event.

The power operational status of a FRU at entPhysicalTable index {o 1} has changed to {T PowerOperType 1}.

Power Admin Status:  {T PowerAdminType 3}


The following are the $SPECROOT/SG-Support/CsEvFormat/EventTables/PowerOperType_en_US and PowerAdminType_en_US tables used to enumerate the values of PowerOperType and PowerAdminType respectively:


0x00000001 offEnvOther

0x00000002 on

0x00000003 offAdmin

0x00000004 offDenied

0x00000005 offEnvPower

0x00000006 offEnvTemp

0x00000007 offEnvFan


0x00000001 on

0x00000002 off

0x00000003 inlineAuto

0x00000004 inlineOn
