Have seen this message 4 times yesterday in a XP1000 Workstation /var/adm/messages log file ...
pwrmgr: Unable to create an event ...sys.unix.power.state_change
What does it mean ?. Could sb. explain it, please?.
Perhaps the power supply is not stable enough or is it beginning to fail ?.
Or is it, perhaps, complaining about the quality of the mains supply?
Solved! Go to Solution.

There appear to be two issues here. The first question is: what does the event mean? If you check the Event Manager reference at http://h30097.www3.hp.com/docs/base_doc/DOCUMENTAT
Which brings us to the second issue: apparently there is a problem posting the event. Is event logging configured properly and working on the system (has it ever worked)? Is the EVM daemon running? (you can check with "ps -ef | grep evmd").

Thank you so much for the clarification.
Indeed, the EVM was not running!.
And thank you also for the link to the docs. (I had been searching for this message in the docs, also have been googling it, but was not able to find anything related to it). Now i have the proper link. Thanks!.
