If the link failure is due to a problem with the EMS:
The TMF 814 Adapter notifies SAM that the EMS is not available.
SAM displays a notification in the Global Console.Note:
For information about notifications and impacts, see the VMware Smart Assurance Optical Transport Manager User Guide.
While the EMS is down, it cannot send any events/alarms to the TMF 814 Adapter.
When the EMS is restored and resumes monitoring, it queries the managed network for status and synchronizes the alarms with the Adapter.
