Provide meaningful info with errpt id 32BB81EF and FBD8625E - UNKNOWN error against SEA

with VIO 3.1.3.21, errpt now shows entries with 32BB81EF and FBD8625E but the data is meaningless to the end user. Allegedly, this is an indication that the SEA has become "primary" again, according to IBM Support. But, errpt id E48A73A4 already tells me the SEA has become "primary".

As is, these new errpt entries provide no value to me, but (prior to connecting with IBM Support) they raised a red flag that something needed further investigation. An UNKNOWN error logged against ENT9 (my SEA) raised my red flag.

My suggestion is to provide meaningful data with errpt id 32BB81EF and FBD8625E so I might act appropriately..... OR just get rid of them from errpt.

A snap is available under Case # TS009506936
