I would like to know where in LMS 4.2 you can edit/configure the syslog analyzer to display a different description/explanation and recommended action for various syslog messages.
We're starting to roll out 802.1x on our network and we would like to get something documented so our engineers can identify the problem and know what to do to fix the issue without having to parse through several tried and failed processes.
There's a way to do it. I can't remember where I saw it in the menus.

You cannot do it in CPI or LMS 4.2, but if you have Splunk I've developed an app that does this for you: https://apps.splunk.com/app/1352/ Every facility, severity and mnemonic combination looks up recommended actions and explanations.
IMHO neither LMS nor Cisco Prime Infrastructure are very good tools for handling syslog. They have their uses and work great for management as well as handling SNMP, but using LMS or CPI for syslog is a bit of a hassle, especially if you want to have a historical perspective of your data.
I do consulting both on CPI and Splunk and always advice my clients to use Splunk for log handling as you use it to analyze logs from other devices in your network as well.
