Can someone tell me what the cause of this alert is that's captured by our SQL Audit trace we have setup using the built-in auditing functionality? This alert is generated from time to time in the audit log and the audit log has not been disabled or the server has not restarted.

<action_info xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sqlserver/2008/sqlaudit_data">
    <![CDATA[EDW Audit$A]]>
  <action>event enabled</action>

You need to set action disabled which is given in values.

<action_info xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sqlserver/2008/sqlaudit_data"><session><![CDATA[TestServerAudit$A]]></session><action>event disabled</action><object><![CDATA[audit_event]]></object></action_info>
