RETAIN tip: H207748
When setting up the contact information for the IBM Support (call home) feature in the Chassis Management Module (CMM), the 'userid' section (the part before the ampersand or "at symbol" ('@') character) of the email address cannot be set to more than 31 characters, as shown in the following example:
| ||system> chconfig -T system:mm[p] -ce DG-ICT-Monitoring-Hardware-Critical@Frames-Group.com |
Email: invalid input. Please make sure your input is not empty and within 128 characters complying with the format in help.
Similarly, attempting to set the address from the CMM web interface results in the following error:
| ||Error encountered. Please check fields again. |
The system may be any of the following IBM servers:
- Flex System Enterprise Chassis, type 7893, any model
