BannedFromNetwork

This alert indicates that network administrators have banned this Cisco IME server from the network (IME distributed cache ring), making this Cisco IME service fully or partly inoperative. Network administrators rarely ban servers but do so if they detect that the server is being used to launch malicious attacks into the network. If you receive this alert in error, contact TAC immediately.

IMEDistributedCacheFailure

This alert indicates the health of the IME distributed cache. A value of zero (red) means that the IME distributed cache is suffering from a significant problem such as one of the following conditions:

The Cisco IME cannot resolve issues after the network was partitioned. In this case, validation attempts may fail.

The Cisco IME service is not connected to the network at all and is unable to reach the bootstrap servers.

A value of one (yellow) indicates that the Cisco IME network is experiencing minor issues, such as connectivity between bootstrap servers or other Cisco IME network issues. Check for any alarms that may indicate why this counter is 1. A value of two indicates that IME distributed cache is functioning normally and the system is considered healthy.

The alert includes the username and password that were used to connect to the Cisco IME server as well as the IP address and name of the target Cisco IME server. To resolve this alert, log into the Cisco IME server and check that the username and password that are configured match those configured in Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

SWUpdateRequired

The Cisco IME server generates this alert when a new version of the Cisco IME server software is required. This alert repeats until you perform the upgrade. To obtain more information about the software update, go to the Cisco website. You should install critical updates within days of receiving this alert.

These upgrades address security vulnerabilities or key functional outages. In some cases, if you do not apply a critical upgrade immediately, the Cisco IME server may become unable to connect to the network.

TicketPasswordChanged

The Cisco IME server generates this alert when the administrator changes the password that is used to generate the validation tickets.

Verify that an authorized administrator changed the password. Unauthorized changes may indicate compromise to the administrative interfaces on the Cisco IME service. If you determine that unauthorized changes have been made, change the administrative passwords on the Cisco IME server immediately to prevent further unauthorized access. To change the administrative password, type set password admin in the Cisco IME server CLI.
