Changes

Some customers require the enabled level of auditing which will capture all configuration change information either in Admin Server log or audit recorder log depending on which configuration auditing is enabled:
 
1. CHANGE_LOG: configuration change information is updated in Admin server log
2. CHANGE_AUDIT: configuration change information is updated in audit recorder log which gets generated in admin server logs folder
3. CHANGE_LOG_AND_AUDIT: configuration change information is updated in both audit recorder log and admin server log
 
If we make audit type one of these the above info message will be logged which can be ignored as its just info message and with it no other fuctionality is affected.
