Embeded Event Manager doesn't execute the cli commands


I have configured the EEM and IP SLA on router 2911 with the event  "track state down".

event manager applet Prueba3
 event track 1 state down
 action 1.0 cli command "enable"
 action 1.1 cli command "configure terminal"
 action 1.2 cli command "interface gigaEthernet 0/1.120"
 action 1.3 cli command "description XXXXX"   /* this is only to tested the action, the real will be "no ip route-map...." */
 action 1.4 cli command "end"


It recognizes the event "track 1 state down", because when I do " show event manager history event", after track is down, it appears :

No.  Job Id Proc Status   Time of Event            Event Type         Name
1    1      Actv success  Wed May28 21:18:04 2014  track              applet: Prueba3


But the problem is the the applet doesn't executed the cli commands. The loggin shows:

May 28 21:24:32.113: %TRACKING-5-STATE: 1 ip sla 1 reachability Down->Up
May 28 21:25:29.113: %TRACKING-5-STATE: 1 ip sla 1 reachability Up->Down
May 28 21:25:29.169: %SYS-5-CONFIG_I: Configured from console by  on vty1 (EEM:Prueba3)

When I do "show line vty 1" it seems to be that it have never ingressed.


My router has a user and password as:

username rsnpower2 privilege 15 secret 4 LgaZhZWEWKivYt.uo6bM87s3eMiIPtS50PDGv2K1IUA

and it ingresses directly to privileged mode ( #).

I think that if the firts cli commnad is "enable", how it could ingress if it doesn't know the password, or it doesn't need it.

I have also tried without "enable", with "shutdown" and " no shutdown", with "exit", but it doesn't work .


The router version is:

Cisco IOS Software, C2900 Software (C2900-UNIVERSALK9-M), Version 15.1(4)M4, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)


How could I find out what is happening?


I would be very grateful for your help.

Hello I first glance it looks



I first glance it looks like your config is okay.- however is the specified interlace correct?

Try this:

track 1 interface gigaEthernet 0/1 line-protocol

event manager applet Prueba3-DOWN
 event track 1 state down
 action 5.0 cli command "enable"
 action 5.1 cli command "conf t"
 action 5.2 cli command "interface gigaEthernet 0/1.120"
 action 5.3 cli command "no description"
 action 5.4 cli command "end"

event manager applet Prueba3-UP
 event track 1 state up
 action 5.5 cli command "enable"
 action 5.6 cli command "conf t"
 action 5.7 cli command "interface gigaEthernet 0/1.120"
 action 5.8 cli command "description TEST"
 action 5.9 cli command "end"


To test try shutting down and re enabling the interface
