TSMWatch messages

During normal operations, the probe generates ProbeWatch messages and sends them to the ObjectServer. These messages tell the ObjectServer how the probe is running.

The following table describes the raw TSMWatch error messages that the TSM generates. For information about generic TSMWatch messages, see the IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus Probe and Gateway Guide, (SC14-7530).
