Hello Jimmy,

you can ignore this

it is just telling that the Entity MIB has set (armed) an alarm as a consequence of the event se2/1 link down

also error message decoder says:

1. %ENTITY_ALARM-6-INFO: [chars] [chars] [chars] [chars] [chars]

Alarm assertion or deassertion information.

Recommended Action: >> No action is required.

You may be more interested in investigating the up/downs of ser2/1 (if any)

Hope to help
