Unable to Update AES Node Description



When attempting to change a node description in Autonomic Event Services (AES) for a monitored node in Designer Studio, the description changes back to the original value after a few minutes.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Open the node information instance for the monitored node.
  2. Edit the description.
  3. Reopen the node information instance a few minutes later.

Root Cause

A software use or operation error. The description should be changed on the monitored node itself, not in AES.


Perform the following local-change steps:
  1. Go to Designer Studio in the monitored node.
  2. Go to the records explorer > SysAdmin > System Node.
  3. Open your node from the list.
  4. At the top where it says “Edit System Node:” Click the NodeID to the right to edit it.
  5. Submit the change and AES should pick it up. (A restart of the monitored node may be required).
