KBI 310788 Issue Addressed: AT Linux/Unix Script Rule Generates Event Message Different From Argent XT


Argent Advanced Technology 3.1A-1310-A or below


Friday, 20 Dec 2013

However Argent XT combines the text of both as the event long description

When customers migrate from Argent XT to Argent AT, it can be an issue

Argent AT 3.1A-1401-A introduces Boolean registry ‘USE_XT_STYLE_UNIX_ALERT‘ to control the behavior so that Argent AT can keep backward compatibility and provides migrated customer a way to generate Linux/Unix events just like Argent XT
