Windows Application Event Logs


This appendix summarizes the events that the AD Agent software logs to the Windows Application Log (in addition to the Customer Log messages), under the following situations:

The AD Agent itself (actually, its internal "watchdog" functionality) has been started or stopped because of installation or uninstallation of the AD Agent software, or because of a reboot of the AD Agent machine.

The internal "AD Observer" and "RADIUS Server" components of the AD Agent have been manually started or stopped, using the adactrl command.

The internal "AD Observer" and "RADIUS Server" components of the AD Agent have been automatically stopped or restarted, after the watchdog functionality of the AD Agent software has detected a crash or a serious error in one or more of these processes.

You can view these events using the Windows "Event Viewer" tool, which is available in the following location:

Event Viewer (Local) > Applications and Services Log > Cisco AD Agent

All these events have the following attributes and values:

Source—Cisco AD Agent

Level—Information

Task Category—None

Table C-1 lists the event ID, message text, and description for these events.
