Abstract: During normal and exception processing within an IBM tape library, conditions or events may occur which require some level of action by an operator. Additionally, the operator may be interested in monitoring certain events. When these conditions or events are encountered, a message text, called a notification message is logged. The text associated with the notification message may be sent to all hosts that are attached to the subsystem in the form of a message or can be monitored through the TS7700 web interface, SNMP and/or RSyslog which are called notification channels. The intervention or action may require immediate attention to continue library processing or may be something that can be handled at a later time.
The purpose of this white paper is to list all the notifications/messages that are generated and to indicate the importance of each message in regard to how they need to be handled, as well as explain the notification channels and setup in the Management Interface.

Latest update includes for TS7700 Release 5.0
