Far end alarm service is down


With CM 6 there is no modem remote access or alarm notification, Have seen an issue where the customer has no alarm service configured and regularly received the following platform alarm even the subsequent alarm which may have caused it had cleared.

SME MAJ Far end alarm service is down this alarm.

GAM WRN Alarm service failure – unable to report alarms

Only way I could see of resolving it was by turning off the Master Agent from the CM web page, it has to be done on each server too.

Server (Maintenance) / Agent Status (Under Alarms) click Stop Master Agent.

Unfortunately whenever CM is restarted you have to do it all over again as it restarts the service.

You can also do it from the command line

stop -s MasterAgent (it will ask you to confirm Y and a statapp will confirm is it off).
