Symptoms

After a firmware upgrade from SysFW 9.5.x (or earlier) to 9.6.x (or later), existing faults can get a misclassified Subsystem.

For instance, the System Log shows the misclassification of a PSU as follows:

 

-> show -script /System/Log/List

Log
ID    Date/Time                         Event Type                             Subsystem

The BUI will also misclassify the faulted subsystem.
