Hosts File Format
The TSM for Avaya Definity G3 uses a hosts file to connect to multiple hosts.
This file is specified by the HostsFile property. When the probe starts, it reads through the hosts file attempting to connect and log into each host.
<host> <port> : <chi> <cho> <ft> <ia> <ri> <ra> <af>;
Table 1 describes the hosts file format.
||The host to which the TSM connects.|
||The port to which the TSM connects.|
||The chat in string for the host/port.|
||The chat out string for the host/port.|
||The flush time value for the host/port.|
||The inactivity alarm for the host/port.|
||The reconnection interval.|
||The reconnection attempts.|
||The active flag; you must set this to TRUE|
Be aware of the following when creating a hosts file:
- Semicolons (;) indicate the end of each entry in the host file.
- Colons (:) are used to separate the device details from the corresponding connection information.
- Whitespace separates individual elements within the sections.
- Whitespace characters are <sp>, <tab>, <cr>, and <nl>.
- Comment lines are preceded by #.
- Blank lines are ignored.
- If the hosts file is not defined, the TSM uses the
Portproperties to connect to the device. If the
HostsFileproperties are not defined, the TSM exits.
