More information

Event ID 16405 together with event ID 1502 or 1503 is added on BITS clients whenever a profile is set up, whether it's set up correctly or not. You should interpret the event as meaning that a bandwidth profile was set up. It does not indicate any issue.

Note If there is no associated event 1502 or 1503 that has a similar time stamp, this indicates that there is a problem with the device’s configuration.
