If the link failure is due to a problem with the TMF 814 Adapter:

  1. SAM displays a notification in the Global Console.

  2. While the Adapter is down, the EMS caches all new events/alarms.

  3. When the Adapter is restored, it sends a request to the EMS for all active events/alarms.

  4. The Adapter maps all events/alarms to VMware Smart Assurance ICS notification attributes and forwards them to the remote client.
