  • FAS
  • AFF


RTC battery low warning event is not defined as a notification event in OCSM.

Additional Information

Refer to Cluster management using System Manager for Alerts explanation detail of OCSM.

Excerpts from alerts relevant areas:
Alerts and Notifications
Displays all alerts in red, such as emergency EMS events, offline node details, broken disk details, license entitlements that are at high risk, and offline network port details. Displays all notifications in yellow, such as health monitor notifications that occurred in the past 24 hours at the cluster level, license entitlements that are at medium risk, unassigned disk details, the number of migrated LIFs, volume move operations that failed, and volume move operations that required administrative intervention in the past 24 hours.

Such as above, "Emergency EMS event, Disk, Network and License" is notified on OCSM alert.
Also, RTC battery event severity is Error.  It is not an Emergency.
Yellow notification notifies alert at the cluster level. But RTC battery event is at the node level.
