This section helps you in editing certain parameters of SAM for Alarming notifications to flow in UI Notification log view.


  1. Go to SAM installed location: /opt/InCharge/SAM/smarts/bin.
  2. To enable or disable the alarm notifications, edit the alert_svc_msg.conf file using sm_edit command.
    For example, ./sm_edit ../conf/icoi/alert_svc_msg.conf.
  3. To enable an alarm, set the following parameter to True which is the default value. To disable an alarm, modify the value from True to False. If you change the value, then you must restart the OI server.
    Note: Use the latest SAM domain manager, released with current VMware Telco Cloud Service Assurance release.
  4. Enable TLS communication between Kafka Edge and OI Server using Enable TLS for Edge Kafka.
    Note: Start the OI Server for Alarming configuration using the same SAM build.
  5. Add Kafka Access Settings Credential For OI Server in VMware Telco Cloud Service Assurance user interface by providing the Domain Manager VM IP address in which broker and Domain Managers are running.
    For more information on how to configure the Kafka Access Settings Credential, see the step 3-b for domain type is OI Server in the Add Kafka Access Settings Credentials.
  6. In Global Manager Administration Console of SAM, enable INCHARGE-OI in Aggregate SAM then enable INCHARGE-SA (Aggregate SAM) in Presentation SAM.
