Abstract: A.S.M.A. DIAL-OUT FUNCTION MAY NOT COMMUNICATE ALERT
The Automatic Dialout function of the ASMA (Advanced Systems Management Adapter) dials out, but the receiving numeric or alphanumeric pager does not receive the alert.
PROBLEM ISOLATION AIDS:
All of the following must be true for this TIP to apply:
Add one or more commas " , " at the end of the telephone number configured for the "Alert Dialout" function in the "Service Processor Manager". Each comma will cause a 2 second delay(*) from the time that the ASMA completes dialing to the time that the numeric or alphanumeric alert is transmitted.
See the 'Service Processor Manager for Netfinity User's Guide' P/N 05L1468 for setting dialout functions for the ASMA.
The "Service Processor Manager for Netfinity User's Guide" is available in pdf format on the IBM Website at the following
Search on "Service Processor Manager"
(*) The delay time is dependent on the Paging Service receiving the dialout.
