Error messages

If a hardware, software, or configuration problem exists on your system that is not severe enough to cause a panic, the storage system logs a message to alert you to the problem.

The error message can be logged to the console, a file, or to a remote system, depending on how you have configured message logging.

Note: You should check the /etc/messages file once a day for important messages. You can automate the checking of this file by creating a script on the administration host that periodically searches /etc/messages and then alerts you of important events.
