When the Domain Manager receives a subscription request, it normally sends a notification back to the client to indicate whether or not the request was accepted. In the event of an error, such as an invalid event name being specified, the Domain Manager does not report an error by using normal Perl die semantics. Instead, a notification is used to report that the subscription was rejected. The format of the ACCEPT/REJECT message is shown in Notification record - ACCEPT, REJECT, (PROPERTY).
