Problem Description: XML TAGS INCLUDED IN THE EVENT DESCRIPTION Problem/Problem Summary: In Windows 2008, When displaying the "description" attribute of the Event Log attribute group for the ITM Windows agent, extra data is appended with an XML tag such as <EventData> <Data> or <UserData> or similar ones. The problem is associated to the wrong default value for the NT_LOG_APPEND_XML_DATA environment variable. This variable is used to specify if the event description in XML format should be appended to the plane description of the event or not. If the parameter is not specified, the default should be equivalent to 0 (do not append the xml information). On the contrary the default is set to 1 (append the xml information to the event description).
The default value for NT_LOG_APPEND_XML_DATA has been set to 0. The fix for this APAR is contained in the following maintenance package: | interim fix | 188.8.131.52-TIV-ITM_WIN-IF0002
