Description



Build number 7.0.2131

Event Console reduces the need to maintain separate tools to monitor computers, software, printers, and other devices. Event Console collects SNMP traps and other status messages and displays them in a single location. All status messages that are received by Event Console are converted to a common format that links each received message to the affected resource in the CMDB. These formatted messages are called alerts.

This component is part of the Symantec Management Platform 7.0 SP2. For release notes, see knowledgebase article 46035.

Topology viewer removed from 7.0 SP2

Event Console no longer installs the Topology Viewer into the SMS portal page as of 7.0 SP2. If you are upgrading over the 7.0 product, Topology is no longer available on the SMS portal page and you will need to wait for the next release of SMS to get it back. Further, an error message in the log stating that the ItemUpdate was aborted can be ignored. This error happens when SMS is not installed and has no effect on the product.
