Options to configure individual events

Event list access

Event list format

You can configure individual events as follows:

Use the evntlist.htm page. See Event list access on this page.

Use the I2C Configuration Utility on the MasterSwitchCD. You edit a text file (.ini file,) convert that file to a binary configuration file (.cfg file), and use the Management Card Wizard to send the

.cfg file to multiple Management Cards over the network. See the Management Card Addendum on the MasterSwitchCD.

To configure the actions for events based on their default severity levels instead of individually, see Actions Option (Web Interface only) on page 29.

To access the event list, add /evntlist.htm to the Management Card’s URL address value (IP address orDNS name). You cannot access the event list directly from the Web interface menus.

For an IP address of159.215.12.114, and the defaultTCP port of80, theURL is:

http://159.215.12.114/evntlist.htm

For an IP address of 159.215.12.114, and aTCP port other than80 (in this example,5000), theURL is:

http://159.215.12.114:5000/evntlist.htm

For a DNS name of writers, the URL is: http://writers/evntlist.htm

The evntlist.htm page defines the following for each event:

Code: The event’s unique event code.

Description: The text used for the event.

Severity: The event’s default severity level.

Configuration: The hexadecimal code that defines the actions to occur for the event and provides a link to the event mask that you use to configure the event. See Event mask settings on page 34.
