Symptoms

If mcpd audit logging is enabled on a chassis, updates to device group state will be recorded on every configuration change, even if CMI is not configured or no synchronizable object was modified.

Impact

Updates to device group state will be recorded on every configuration change.

Conditions

This only applies on chassis systems with at least one secondary blade, and the log messages only appear if mcpd audit logging is enabled.

Workaround

This issue has no workaround at this time.

Fix Information

If mcpd audit logging is enabled on a chassis, updates to device group state were in past versions recorded on every configuration change, even if CMI was not configured or no synchronizable object was modified. This no longer happens, and these log messages are now only generated if the state actually changes.
