  • Closed as documentation error.

Error description

  • The "Emailaddress"  parameter of the "register admin" command is
    now used for the new "email alert" function introduced  with
    Tivoli Storage Manager 6.3.4 .
    But the "Administrator Reference" manual still shows misleading
    information for this keyword.
    
    Example:
    
    1.) The "register admin" command shows :
     "EMAILADdress
     Specifies more contact information. The information that is
     specified by this parameter is not acted upon by Tivoli
     Storage Manager."
    
    2.) The "query admin" from the same manual shows :
     "Email Address
     Applies only to IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Express and is shown
     for compatibility purposes."
    
    This should be corrected . Now "emailaddress" is really used for
    the email alert function.
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:  6.3.4 and 7.1  All
    documentations are affected, infocenter, pdf manuals and server
    help
    
    Initial Impact: Low
    
    Additional Keywords:
    TSM  , email address OC , operation center , smtp sc239775-05
    sc239776-05 sc239777-05 sc239778-05 sc239779-05
