Old EMS alerts are repeating in syslog

Hi Experts,


I have a problem with the EMS alerts. One EMS alert of Power supply failure was generated in Jan 2013 and because of that, even after the resolution of actual problem i am still getting EMS alerts. Below is the example of the same.



Event Time..........: Sat Mar  2 17:17:50 2013

     Power Supply : Failure is detected.


Event Details :

     Event Date  ...................: Wed Jan  9 09:13:06 2013


FYI, i have cleared all the System event logs from the system console but that didn't work.

You likely need to clear the events that are "DOWN" in EMS.  This can be done with the set_fixed command.


# /etc/opt/resmon/lbin/set_fixed -L


will list all DOWN items.


# /etc/opt/resmon/lbin/set_fixed -n \*


will attempt to reset everything in EMS.
