The Adapter for Alcatel-Lucent 5620 SAM EMSuses the VMware Smart Assurancepatented Codebook Correlation Technology to do root-cause analysis. This analysis is based on many factors in the managed network, including, but not limited to, Operational or Administrative status. However, when the Alcatel-Lucent 5620 SAM EMS server generates either administrativeState or operationalState information for a component, the Adapter stores this information in a repository object.
