If the Alert field of an error record template is set to True , programs which process alerts use the following fields in the error log to build an alert:
These template fields must be set up according to the SNA Generic Alert Architecture described in SNA Formats, order number GA27-3136. Alerts that are not set up according to the architecture cannot be processed properly by a receiving program, such as NetView.
Messages added to the error logging message sets must not conflict with the SNA Generic Alert Architecture. When the errmsg command is used to add messages, the command selects message numbers that do not conflict with the architecture.
If the Alert field of an error record template is set to False , you can use any of the messages in the error logging message catalog.
