If the link failure is due to a problem with the EMS:

  1. The TMF 814 Adapter notifies SAM that the EMS is not available.

  2. SAM displays a notification in the Global Console.


    For information about notifications and impacts, see the VMware Smart Assurance Optical Transport Manager User Guide.

  3. While the EMS is down, it cannot send any events/alarms to the TMF 814 Adapter.

  4. When the EMS is restored and resumes monitoring, it queries the managed network for status and synchronizes the alarms with the Adapter.
