Chapter 1. Introduction to SMS BlueNote.
No one can doubt the advantages of SMS – It is the pure genius of SMS that allows you
to send a message to any mobile GSM telephone!
And the advantages just grow when you integrate SMS into your existing systems. SMS
messaging can be a natural part of the company information flow equaling telephone
calls, e-mail and fax.
It is possible for "field based personnel" to send SMS messages direct to a colleague's
PC. The incoming SMS messages are received by the message queue on the iSeries
and the message can be both be read and processed by a program on your iSeries.
When you send SMS messages to "field based personnel" SMS BlueNote will
communicate directly with the GSM operators. You can thus avoid the varying - and
sometimes long - delivery times experienced, when sending SMS via the various
Internet solutions available. You can key a GSM number direct or choose a recipient
from a list. SMS BlueNote comes with its own web-client, or messages can be sent via
Lotus Notes. You have also the option to monitor external Windows servers or
workstations in the network.
Use SMS BlueNote for system monitoring and management.
SMS BlueNote can monitor every movement and process on your iSeries (AS/400). You
can monitor system messages, message queues, message files, subsystem, job, user
profiles and you can also make a conditioned monitor session. All those events can be
sent as SMS messages to the GSM phone of the operator on duty.
You can answer OS/400 system messages using your GSM phone!
Use of the GSM unit makes it possible to send answers to system messages via an
ordinary GSM phone. You can also use the SMS function to execute programs and
functions on your iSeries.
Different companies equal different needs.
BlueNote Communicator
SMS can be sent and received in the iSeries. SMS Communicator integrates SMS to the
company communication flow.
BlueNote Monitor
For full system monitoring. Monitor is operative on all levels: You can send replies to
system messages, send program calls and program triggers to the iSeries (AS/400).
BlueNote Complete
SMS Communicator and SMS Monitor combined in one package.
5
SMS BlueNote can be connected to the message queue on the iSeries so that the
system automatically sends system messages to the system operators GSM mobile
phone. This way the system operator will always be able to follow the phases of a job
on evening, nights and weekends, without being in the vicinity of a workstation.
All types of system messages can be sent. The system messages are
prioritized after message queue and severity level.
User defined Message filter.
Registration of system operators. Including the possibility of giving priority to
change duty hours. Duty reroute chain ensures full attention.
Alarm. All types of phones can be programmed to ring when serious system
errors occur.
User defined communication protocols.
Runs in its own subsystem.
You have also the option to monitor external Windows (NT, XP & 2000)
servers or workstations in the network.
SMS BlueNote’ own data queues use minimal system resources.
API functions.
Inbound SMS can trigger programs.
SMS BlueNote is perfect, when you wish to maintain contact with your "men in the
field" or want to send SMS messages in big numbers.
Messages can be sent via a calendar function to individuals or user groups.
The dispatch can be controlled precisely by date and time.
Complete integration with mail systems on the iSeries . Mail and messages
can be supervised and transmitted to the GSM mobile phone.
Incoming SMS can be rerouted to message queues or as email.
SMS BlueNote' own job log gives a complete status on send messages.
Direct TCP/Gateway to the GSM operators SMSC. Especially for the users
who need a solution that can handle large numbers of SMS’ to be sent within a
very short time limit.
SMS BlueNote can be used with a GSM terminal on any AS/400 or iSeries
installation.
Some phone companies allow access via the telephone network with an ordinary PC
modem. SMS BlueNote can be set to support your local SMS teleoperator in any
country covered by the GSM system.

1.1. Construction of this manual
The two modules; “ Communicator” and “Monitor” equals in this manual; SMS
BlueNote.
IBM Power™ Systems, System i™, iSeries™ and AS/400™ are in this manual
regarded as brand names for one and the same machine. The terms are used at
random.
The terms GSM Modem and GSM Terminal represents one and the same hardware.
The correct technical term is GSM Terminal.
SMS BlueNote is in fact a product with two types of end users. The one type is in
need of system monitoring and system control. The other type is “just” in need of a
solution for SMS communication. We have as a consequence tried to divide the
chapters in the manual for these two types.
First there is a general description of SMS BlueNote and a description of the
functions in the program. Chapter 2 is a detailed description of the installation
procedures.
Chapter 3 describes the superior system structure of SMS BlueNote. It also
describes how to create new users, group profiles and distribution lists in SMS
BlueNote. Chapter 3. is furthermore used by the system operator when users, group
profiles, and distribution groups are maintained.
Chapter 4. Work with SMS Messages. This chapter can be used as a user guide
for the users who only are going to use the message function of SMS BlueNote. The
users have the authorization to change and correct their own messages, but not to
correct or change the system setup, the user profiles etc..
Finally Chapter 5 to 11 describes how system operators can use SMS BlueNote to
setup and supervise the operation of the iSeries or the AS/400.
Chapter 11 is reserved for “the various stuff ” that doesn’t fit in elsewhere.
_______________________________________________________________________________
1.2. Principles of development
The following principles have been emphasized on the system-development:
Simplicity.
The operation of the system must be simple, in order to be fast and easy to learn.
Complete on-line check of all input, and built-in prevention of operation errors.
Few and compact files, that automatically adjust the specific users need of space.
Insensitivity to power failure.
Small and simple programs which are easy to develop further.
Complete SAA (System Application Architecture) standard.
7
1.3. Screen layout
All screen images in SMS BlueNote have been constructed in three parts:
1)
A header that shows the title on the subject you are presently working with. If you call
a submenu it will display new layer new headers on top of the first. An image
headline of previous images will always be visible, so you do not loose track of the
process.
2)
The body of the screen shows the specific information as info- and/or input -fields. All
fields’ open to input will be underlined. When several occurrences are listed, you will
be able to specify the values:
2=Change
3=Copy
4=Delete
5=Display
Occurrences are displayed and changes can be made in
the record.
The occurrence can be copied.
The occurrence can be deleted.
The occurrence is shown and the record is protected
against changes.
The system will inform you, whether it is allowed to change or delete in the field.
3)
The bottom of the screen shows the function keys and gives a brief description. All
active function keys described at the bottom of the screen display observes the
standard IBM terms:
F3=Exit
Exits function.
F4=Prompt
Displays a list of possible values.
F5=Refresh
Displays the image with possible changes.
F6=Create
Creates new records.
F9=Retrieve
Retrieves the previous command line.
F10=Display Items
Displays supplementary information with items.
F11=Info
Displays hidden text to the right of the screen image.
F12=Cancel
Cancels the image.
F19=Display Messages Displays system messages to the user.
Finally there are a few special function keys that are implied, and which do not
appear on the screen.
F1=Help
Roll up
Roll down
Gives entry to online help text.
To be used in the synopsis to roll forward, if more is
stipulated.
To be used in the synopsis to roll backwards through
the list.
SMS BlueNote has been created in a way that enables you to display a summary of
possible values in all the fields, where specific values must be entered. This is done
by activating the F4=Prompt with the cursor in the field. Then you can point out the
value you want, and it will automatically be transferred back to the field.
8
1.4. Search in screen images
SMS BlueNote has a built-in search system that makes it very easy for the user to
find, list and/or qualify information.
It is always possible to search on the specific user name, group name...ect. by
pressing the F4 key in the field, where you need a listing.
_______________________________________________________________________________
1.5. Security in SMS BlueNote.
The security system has been divided into two parts. 1) the active part and 2) the
Inactive security system.
When the system is inactive, all users have to maintain everything on the SMS
BlueNote system
Active security system
When the security system is active, user profiles from OS/400's own security system
will be used, where user profiles *SECOFR always have authorization to everything
in SMS BlueNote. As a general rule the users only have authorization to information
concerning them selves.
The following applies for the user profiles: *PGMR, *SYSOPR, *SECADM and
*USER
Command

The security system will not be active, until there is one/or several group profiles,
where "authorization group" has been set to 1=Yes.
SMS BlueNote's security system is activated/deactivated by the command
WRKSMSGRPP (Menu number 5. Work with group profiles).
Create or Change an existing group profile. In the field Administrator group enter
1=Yes. The security system is then active.
If you wish the users with the user profile *PGMR, *SYSOPR, *SECADM or *USER
to have access to maintain the SMS system, you must attach them through a
distribution list. Select option 8=Work with user profiles on a wanted group profile,
where SMS authorization have been activated.
Regarding the installation. You can say that there are 3 steps in the procedure:
1) SMS BlueNote creates the libraries
SMS
(This is the program library)
SMSDB
(This is the database library)
SMS is the product prefix you type when you install SMS BlueNote – (point 5 in the quick
installation see next chapter)
2) In the library QGPL we install:
BLUENOTE object type *MENU
3) Finally we create the communication description
Line: SMS
Controller:

Chapter 2. Installation.
2.1. System requirements for SMS BlueNote.
The setup of SMS BlueNote can be varied in different scenarios:




One-way SMS communication via an analog modem - or via a SMS Gateway.
Two-way SMS communication via a GSM terminal (modem) - or via a SMS
Gateway.
SMS to E-mail.
A combination of the above.
_______________________________________________________________________________
Scenario A) Send SMS via a dial up line:
SMS messages are sent as one-way SMS
from the iSeries, to the GSM phones or
pagers.
All SMS messages are delivered via a
normal phone line to the SMSC of the GSM
operator. Delivery time is normally 12
seconds pr SMS.
This service is not available in all countries.
Ask you GSM operator if they support SMSC.
System requirement - Scenario A):
IBM iSeries with OS/400 V5R1 or later.
One V.24 line with a standard asynchronous PC-modem - or the internal IBM modem.
11
Scenario B)
Send and receive SMS via a HTTP gateway:
SMS messages are handled as one- or
two-way SMS from the iSeries, to the GSM
phones.
All SMS messages are delivered via a
TCP/IP or HTTP gateway.
Delivery time is normally 3-5 seconds per
SMS. Some gateways can handle as much
as 40 SMS per second.
This service is not available in all countries. Ask you GSM operator.
System requirement - Scenario B):
IBM iSeries with OS/400 V5R1 or later.
Active TCP/IP – you must be able to ping an URL.
_______________________________________________________________________________
Scenario C)
Send and receive SMS via a GSM terminal connected to a V.24 line
The SMS messages are sent from and to the
iSeries via a GSM terminal. The teminal has
its own SIM card.
The outgoing SMS messages are delivered to
a GSM phone the similar way known from an
ordinary GSM phone.
The inbound SMS messages for the iSeries
also received on the GSM unit.
System requirement - Scenario C):
IBM iSeries with OS/400 V5R1 or later.
Minimum one GSM phone.
One V.24 communications adaptor
One GSM terminal with antenna and connection cable.
SIM card. You can use a SIM card from any GSM operator.
12
Scenario D)
Send and receive SMS via a GSM terminal connected via an external Device
Server using TCP/IP
The device server can be
connetcted anywhere on the
company network.
The Device Server can be used
as a replacement for the V.24
adaptor.
This setup can also be used in
cross country scenarios.
System requirement - Scenario D):
IBM iSeries with OS/400 V5R1 or later.
Minimum one GSM phone.
TCP/IP must be active on the iSeries.
One external device server
GSM terminal/modem with antenna.
SIM card. You can use a SIM card from any GSM operator.
_______________________________________________________________________________
D) Combined setup.
Send SMS via a gateway - and send& receive via a GSM terminal:
You can have a scenario where the outgoing SMS messages are delivered via a
gatway – this can e.g. be bulk SMS sent to customers whereas internal company SMS
communication are handled via the GSM modem.
The decision to choose between the scenarios is related to the way the SMS messages
are sent - and the actual cost involved.
We recommend you to take contact to your local GSM operator and check the prices in
order to determine the most feasible solution.

Many of the major GSM operators can offer their customers a Large Scale or Bulk
SMS Account. It is in short a service that enables the customer to send large amount
of SMS in a very short time period. Speeds are ranging from 1 to 40 SMS pr second.
The customer will be able to display his phone number, company name or digits of
his own choice.
The GSM operators will normally only allow answers from Mobiles from their own
network but the system can be set up so replies can be received on a GSM unit.
This service can be accessed through HTTP or UCP gateways.

2.6 Connect via GSM Terminal
SMS BlueNote comes with a number of predefined GSM operators for modem dial in and
http gateways.
You will also find an “operator” labeled *GSM on the list in option 12 “Work with operators”
This is the GSM Terminal that can be considered a “stand alone” operator.
Create your own local operator.
You have the possibility to add new operators. That applies for SMSC (dial in) operators,
operators that uses HTTP gateway and GSM lines.
Log In. HTTP gateways and SIM card will require an active account.
GSM Hardware
The term ‘GSM modem’ can be used for both external and interal GSM modems. The
correct term for the GSM hardware is GSM Terminal.
The GSM Terminal support two-way SMS communication.
The GSM Terminal is connected to the V.24 line or via a device server using TCP/IP.
See chapter 2.6.2 for connection via V.24 and chapter 2.6.3 for conection via TCP/IP.

2.8. Connect via dial up line and modem.
Require one v.24 line and a modem - or the internal iSeries modem
For plain dial up service to the GSM operator (SMSC).
When you install SMS BlueNote make sure you, use an asynchronous modem. You will
not be able to use IBM's standard modem 5858, since it can only communicate synchronic.
You must also look out for IBM modem 7855-10. This modem will work both synchronic and
asynchronic but it cannot switch automatically between the two settings. If you decide to
use this modem you must set it in a permanent asynchronous mode.
In order to get an easy start, it will be a good idea to find a "simple PC-modem" (minimum
2400 baud) or the IBM modem and connect it to your iSeries through the thick, black IBM
V.24 cable).
If you have an iSeries it is also possible to use the Internal IBM modem (e.g. 2793)
where you plug in the phone line direct into your hardware.
Enter option 15 “Work with SMS System Values”
"Dial up line informations"
This is internal iSeries modem or any async modem connected to the V.24 line.
Modem type *):
0=PC, 1=IBM External., 2=IBM Internal. Use 0=PC as default
unless you are certain it is an IBM/Multitech standard.
39
Config.Communication name :
Generic term for the Line-, Controller-, and Device description it is
recommended to use SMS.
Note! Line, controller and device will not be generated until you
have sent the first message
Resource name: Press F4 to define the name of the line, the modem is using.
If no lines are displayed then use use the command;
WRKHDWRSC *CMN to locate available lines.
A typical name for the line could be CMN08.
Dial Prefix):
For a switchboard you will typically use 0W 0= “line out”, W=Wait.
Other standards are 9w or 9, or 9,,
Modem Init String :
If your modem needs a special Init string, you must write it here.
This is normally not the case but IBM 7852, 7855 10, modems
will need:
AT H0 E0 &c0 &e4 &s0 X4
The string for the internal modem is: AT H0 &F E0 &s0 &d3 X3
We recommend that you activate the "Inactivity Disconnection
Timer" on your modem. Set it to one minute.

then press F4=Prompt to select the right country "
SMS BlueNote works on a line description, with a line capacity of only 2400 baud. This is
to ensure that the iSeries can communicate with all modems. Most modems can manage a
far higher speed. You can optimize the speed, by changing the line description used by
SMS BlueNote.
For instance type: CHGLINASC SMS Line speed(xxxxx).
on the command line in order to speed up the communication.
Line speed 19200 is default on most operators and it will only be on rare occasions, that
you will have to change the modems own setup in order to work with SMS BlueNote.
We recommend, that you set Modem Init String as blank, when you work with the system
setup. If you are unable to get in contact to your modem, try to choose an init string by
typing F4 list.
41
2.8.1. Work with SMSC dial in operators.
SMSC stands for ‘Short Message Service Center’ and provides a SMS service for
dial in modems.
BlueNote comes with a list of operators with SMSC support. They are listed in menu
option 12. “Work with teleoperators, phonelists and GSM lines”.
The dial in phone number for the dial in SMSC service can have changed since the
list was created. Check with your local operator and ask them for their number of
their SMSC. A fast way is to just dial the number and listen for a modem tone.
Operators with SMSC will normally support a PC-software, which can handle the
SMS or Memo service. The calling number we need for SMS BlueNote is the same
used number used in this product. You will also need to know the type of protocol
they are using.
So you will need to know:
a) the calling number of their SMS center - Ask for the SMSC number used for
dial up via PSTN
b) the type of SMS Protocol. Is the type of SMS Protocol: UCP, SEMA 2000,
TAP or other ?
If their protocol is one of the 3 mentioned - it is possible for you to implement the
operator yourself by copying existing operators.
UCP
Protocol = 1
copy TDKMOBIL and add the right calling number.
TAP
Protocol =6
copy CELLNET and add the right calling number.
SEMA2000

2.8.2. SMSC in operators who use PINCODES.
Some Teleoperators SMSC requires that you subscribe to their service in order to
use the SMSC facility. You can check this by calling your local operator. In order to
be admitted to the SMS system, some operators require that you enter a PINCODE
in SMS BlueNote. In order to type the PINCODE, choose number 12 in the main
menu for work with operator.
In "Work With Operators" type 2=Change by the operator. A screen will appear,
where you type the PIN CODE. See also chapter 3.7.1 "Work With Operators".
Note !!! It is not the PIN-code you use to open your mobile phone. You must use the
PUK-code you got from your operator (it is also printed on the back of your SIM
card). The PIN-code is the 4 last ciphers of the PUK-code. If the PUK-code is
1234567890A, the PIN-code will be 7890. If you have any doubts regarding your
code, please call the Teleoperators customer service.
And note !!! A SENDER ID is your GSM phone number, without country code.
44
2.9. Work with Phone lists.
When you send a SMS message from option "1. Send a message" or using the
SNDSMS command you can either choose to send to a predefined recipient - from
the SMS BlueNote phone book - or you can key in the number direct.
A Phone list is needed when; a number is keyed in directly when using option "1.
Send a message" or when using the SNDSMS command. This always applies when
sending SMS using:
 Multiple GSM lines.
 Gateways HTTP operator
 Dial in modem
Phone list can be used in differet combinations:
Generic. BlueNote will send SMS using the first vacant GSM line if the
number series * to * is used on all GSM lines.
Detailed. Say you have two GSM lines. You can reserve one line for sending
SMS and one for receiving SMS. Use * to * on the ”sending linie” only.
You can use the Phone list to reserve reserve a GSM modem for certain
users.
Combination of Gateway and and GSM line.
Example: The Gateway is reserved for SMS communication with external
customers - while the GSM line is reserved for the IT personell who uses it
for monitoring.
Dial in modem. Some SMSC operators will only service their own customers.
Select Option 12 “Work with teleoperators, phone lists and GSM lines”
Use the panel Work With Operators.
Select the operator and type
"8=Phone lists" in front of the
operator in question.
You can add the intervals, used
by the different operators or you
can add single numbers.

You can also attach new number series to the operator.
If this distribution of phone numbers is changed, you have the possibility to edit or
create new phone list´.
It is possible to use generic selection by use of an asterix *
The generic selection will cause all numbers to be routed via this operator.

Chapter 3. Superior system structure.
When you are sending a message from SMS BlueNote, it is just like an ordinary
telephone. You either dial a number directly, or you can speed dial a number already
precoded in-to the telephone.
You can send a message by typing the recipients GSM phone number direct. But it is
more practical - in the daily work - if you create permanent users/recipients in the
system.
SMS BlueNote creates its own address-database, with user and phone number. This
database can, by choice, be organized with user- and group profiles for sale,
administration and so forth.
You can at all-times create a foreign GSM recipient in SMS BlueNote, as there are
two methods that you can use to send. You can a) either send the SMS message via
your local operator and use roaming or you can b) send direct via a foreign operators
connected to SMS BlueNote.
_______________________________________________________________________________

This is an alternate message function. Messages with a
severity level above this level will appear as a break
message on your screen. You can not answer this message
and will have to use the normal way e.g. DSPMSG
QSYSOPR.
49
3.2.1. Method of dispatch
SMS BlueNote has a built-in facility in order to integrate the message with your mail
system on AS/400, in Office for instance. There is often no reason to send a
message to a mobile phone, if the recipient is working at an AS/400 workstation. This
is why you can choose between the options:
1=
2=
3=
The message is only sent as SMS text.
The message is sent, both as a SMS text, and through the mail system.
The message is only sent as SMS text, if the user is logged off the
system. Otherwise the system is sent through the mail system, and the
message is filed as SMS in the log.
______________________________________________________________________________
3.2.2. Supervise other message systems.
When you are logged off the system, you have the option to let SMS BlueNote
supervise your messages in Office or other mail systems on AS/400. If you wish, you
can choose between these two options:
All your messages are to be sent to your mobile phone automatically.
All your messages are to be sent to your mobile phone automatically.
But only if you signed off your monitor.
Supervise mail. Choose 0 - 1:
0= No.
1= Yes.
_______________________________________________________________________________

3.4. General about functions in user/recipient profiles.
Note !!! You cannot control on "Forwarding form" and monitor "Supervise
messages" at the same time. You will have to take a principal decision to - either to
send your messages via SMS BlueNote, or to send messages the OS400 messaging
systems .
See chapter 3.5 for how to active the security system. An active security system will
enable the user to maintain his own user profile only.
_______________________________________________________________________________
3.4.1. Forwarding form.
You may regard SMS BlueNote as a communication tool for written messages, and
the messages do not necessarily need to be sent to GSM mobile phones. In larger
organizations, it is not always possible to know, if the person, who needs to receive
an important message, is at his/her desk. It might be difficult to determine whether
the message should be sent as an SMS message, or to use the ordinary mail system
on the AS/400. That's why we have chosen to integrate SMS BlueNote for AS/400's
own message system.
You have the possibility to choose the forwarding form:
0= As user profile.
1= The message is only being sent as an SMS text.
2= The message is being sent both as an SMS text and as a mail message.
3= The message is only being sent as an SMS text, if the user has logged off
the system. Otherwise, the message will be sent as a mail message.
Note - If you are sending to a known recipient with a user profile in BlueNote, a
conflict can arise, if both, the sender and the recipient, wants to control the
forwarding form.
You (the system operator) must take a principal decision if your company will use the
forwarding form of a) The sender or b) The recipient’s user profile.
If the "Forwarding form" in the recipients user profile is set to 2 or 3 the senders
Forwarding form must ALLWAYS be set to "0= As user profile".
Note !!! If you use a mail system like OV/400 - you cannot control on "Forwarding
form" and monitor "Supervise messages" at the same time. You will have to take a
principal decision to - either to send your messages via SMS BlueNote, or to send
ALL messages via the mail system e.g. OV/400.
_______________________________________________________________________________
3.4.2. Supervise messages.
SMS BlueNote can be integrated with other message systems. Messages from
OS/400 can automatically be sent to a GSM mobile phone. This is practical, if the
user frequently leaves his/her desk.
The contact is controlled by the user, with the parameters 0= No. 1= Yes.
If you have chosen 1=Yes all messages from e.g. OS/400 will be sent to the
recipients GSM phone.
52
3.4.3. Supervise Office notes and messages.
(OV/400 is discontinued with V5R1)
NOTE !!! In this paragraph the terms "Notes and Messages" are the terms used in
OV/400.
When you are sending Notes or Messages - OV/400 can as you know be preset so the recipient will be advised on his terminal:
a)
of all inbound notes and messages.
b)
of all inbound messages - but only of Notes which is defined as
"Important" or as "High priority" by the sender.
If you are using OV/400, it is possible for you, to let SMS BlueNote use the same
functions to determine - if a Note must be retransmitted to a GMS phone.
If you have chosen to supervise OV/400, messages from OV/400 are automatically
sent to a GSM mobile phone by the same criteria as mentioned before:
a)
all notes and messages will be transmitted to the GSM phone.
b)
all inbound messages - but only Notes which is defined as "Important" or
as "High priority" by the sender - will be transmitted to the GSM phone.
This is supervised from OV/400.
If you are sending Notes and Messages direct from OV/400, the function "Notify mail"
must be set to "1= Mail types" or "2=All mail".
If you select "2= All mail" - all notes and messages will be transmitted to the GSM
phone.
_______________________________________________________________________________
3.4.4. Supervise Office Calendar.
(OV/400 is discontinued with V5R1)
SMS BlueNote also gives you the possibility to supervise your calendar in OV/400.
If 1=Yes is chosen, the calendar will be sent to your GSM mobile phone daily - on the
hour of the day you prefer, for instance 7.30 a.m. The time is set by the system
operator in the field "Daily Operations" in Work With System information.
The time is - as a default - set to precisely 00.00.00 midnight.
Note - Support for OV/400 ends with V5R1
53
3.4.5. Send messages to foreign GSM users.
SMS messages are covered by roaming agreements between the GSM
Teleoperators. This means that you can send SMS to foreign recipients as long
as the SIM card in the GSM Terminal is covered by the GMS roaming system.
You can also use Gateways to send SMS to foreign GSM subscribers. And there
are two methods depending on the gateway.
Use the SNDSMSMSG command and enclose county code and phone
numer in the command.
Some Gateways will only accept local numbers. So you will in option 12
“Work with operators” create one gateway for each country. Each gateway
must hold the correct country prefix.
_______________________________________________________________________________
3.4.6. Alarm phone.
The phone number for alarm phone is normally only for system operators. When a
SMS message appears on a GSM mobile phone, a low "bib" is normally heard. This
will normally not be loud enough to attract attention, if you are e.g. at sleep.
If serious messages regarding power failure, disk-crash, among other things occurs,
the system will - if configured to do so - call a telephone,. You will hear a three-toned
alarm, and it should be enough to attract the attention to the SMS message on your
GSM mobile phone.
You can select two types of Alarm operators:
ALARM. BlueNote expects the phone to be answered. The system will react on
sound followed by silence. It will take approx. 5 seconds from the phone is answered
to the alarm tone is heard. The alarm in SMS BlueNote will keep on dialing/calling
until the phone is answered and the receiver lifted.
ALARMBLIND. The system will NOT await the phone to be answered. The alarm is
activated for 90 seconds only, and you will hear the alarm tone, the very moment the
receiver is lifted of the phone. The alarm will only make a redial - if the line is busy.
To decide on the one type or the other - must be a matter of personal preference.
NOTE:
Alarms sent via the GSM terminal will just ring the phone. It is adviced to add the
number in the address list in your phone.
54
3.5. Group profiles.
In SMS BlueNote you have the possibility to send messages to individuals and to
groups. Type 5 on the main menu, to see the following screen "Work With Group
profiles".
Press F6 to create a group and type 2 =Change a group. In the example below the
group ALL is being worked on.
A user can be setup in several groups at the same time. For instance you can be
setup in the group ALL, and at the same time in the group SALES.
"SMS authorization":
Here you can determine who will have authorization to edit
in SMS BlueNote's setup and user profiles. For instance
you can create a special group of SMS administrators.
They have also access to read all SMS messages sent
from the system and they have access to the option "Print
group access list".
55
Group access:
1=Yes, means that members of this group will have access
read all messages sent within this group. You can see them
in point 2 on the main menu "Work with messages"
If you are a member of several groups with "Group access " - you will also get
access to read messages sent between the groups. But you will only get access
to read the messages if both the names are on your own positive list.
Example: Imagine a company, which operates with 3 groups; Sales, Technicians
and All.
Sales
Technicians
All
Group access: Yes
Group access: Yes
Group access: No
Jensen
Smith
Jensen
Hansen
Hansen
Hansen
Olsen
Clinton
Olsen
Smith
Clinton
McDonald
Jensen, who is a member of the group "Sales" can, in the log, see his own messages and the messages sent internal in the group - and them only. Jensen cannot see
messages, sent from e.g. Hansen to a third party.
Hansen is a member of both groups "Sales" and "Technicians". There is group access
in both groups and Hansen have got the members from both groups on his positive list.
He can thus read the messages sent between the group members. Hansen can read
messages sent between Olsen and Clinton .
In the group "All" are "Group access" set to "No". This means that McDonald, who is
not member of other groups only can see his own messages - and no others.
Hansen is also a member of this group, but because "Group access " is set to "No", Hansen is unable to see the log of the messages, sent between Clinton and McDonald.
********
Print group access list. If you have got SMS Administrator status this enables you to
print a complete list of the relations between the group members. Use F10= Print group
access list.
56
3.6. Distribution lists.
Distribution lists control all relations regarding user/group. To access this area, type
8=Distribution list from Work With Group profiles.
You will now see the screen; Work With Distribution lists as shown below. This is
where you attach the different users to the group.
Press F6 to create users in a group. You will then receive a list of all the users in the
SMS system. The users are listed on the screen; Work with user profiles.
Choose one or several users by typing 1=Choice, on the line in front of the user. Now
the user/users are attached to the group via the distribution list.

Chapter 4. Send messages from SMS BlueNote.
This chapter can be distributed as a manual for those, who only use SMS
BlueNote's message functions.
Basic functions in SMS BlueNote:
Messages can be sent to a specific person, or groups.
The time of sending can be controlled exactly with time and date (calendar
function).
Messages in Office or other mail systems are supervised, and can be
transmitted to a GSM mobile phone.
SMS BlueNote's job log gives you a complete status of your sent messages.
You can maintain your own user profile.
_______________________________________________________________________________
4.1. SMS in general.
SMS, stands for Short Message Service, gives you the possibility to send text
messages on up to 160 characters, to GSM mobile phones. If the recipient has
turned off his mobile phone, the message will "hang and wait" by the teleoperator in
up to 72 hours, whereupon it will be deleted.
A standard GSM mobile phone will hold minimum from 10 to 15 messages,
regardless as to the message contains 16 or 160 characters. If there are more
messages waiting, they will "come rolling in like pearls on a string", as you delete the
old messages from the mobile phones memory.
A standard SMS is 160 characters. The SMS BlueNote system can handle long
messages totalling 1350 characters. Long messages are sent as concatenated
SMS. That means that a message on e.g. 300 characters is sent and charged as
two SMS.
The message will be displayed as one message in all mobile phones - or SMS
systems - that supports concatenated SMS.
Early GSM phones, will display the message in two separate SMS
59
4.2. Send a message.
In order to send a message, you write GO BLUENOTE on a command line. That
gives you the main menu from SMS BlueNote as shown below.
Select 1 from the main menu; Send a message.
Send a quick message:
Type the message in the field; Type the message.
Set the cursor in the phone field and type the phone number of the recipients
GSM phone.
Press F10 to send.
60
A standard SMS is 160 characters. The system will handle long messages totalling
1350 characters.
Press F11 to expand the panel.
Write the message and press enter.
Long messages are sent as concatenated SMS.
That means that a message on e.g. 300 characters is sent and charged as two SMS.
The message will be displayed as one message in all mobile phones - or SMS
systems - that supports concatenated SMS.
Early GSM phones, will display the message in two separate SMS.
Note: The GSM modem is a requirement for this feature; concatenated SMS.
Tip
You can create a forced line break using: \n
Example: Greetings! \nYou are the winner of the week.
The resulting SMS will read:
Greetings!
You are the winner of the week.
(This will only work on GSM Terminals)
61
4.3. Message handling.
The screen Send a message, gives you the possibility to control the message with
functions:
User ID
See 4.3.1
Forwarding form
See 4.3.2
Time of dispatch
See 4.3.3
Distribution list
See 4.3.4
_____________________________________________________________________________
4.3.1. User ID.
In the field User ID you have the possibility to determine, whether the message is to
be sent to one, or several predefined persons. Press F4 to receive a list of user

_______________________________________________________________________________
4.3.2. Forwarding form.
You have the possibility to determine the message form to use, by choosing a
number from 0 - 3.
In larger organizations, it is not always possible to know, if the person who needs to
receive an important message, is at his/her desk. It might be difficult to determine
whether the message should be sent as an SMS message, or to use the ordinary
mail system on the AS/400 - for instance through Office.
62
SMS BlueNote gives you the possibility to combine the systems.
F4 shows you a list of the possibilities:
0=
User profiles (the recipients) message form is used.
1=
The message is only sent as an SMS text to a mobile phone.
2=
The message is sent, both as an SMS text and as an Office/mail
message.
3=
The message is only sent as an SMS text, if the user is not logged on to
the system. Otherwise the message is sent as an Office message.
Please note ! If the recipient is on the system, the message will be
logged on the system too.
63
4.3.3. Time of dispatch.
SMS BlueNote has a built-in calendar function. It gives you the possibility to
postdate a message (with date and time).
Example:
You want to make sure, that all the salespersons are notified of an important meeting
the following Friday, at 3.00 p.m.
You type the message: Remember the meeting Friday at 3.00 p.m.!.
On the Time of dispatch you type the date of the transmission along with the time
you wish to send the message. It could for instance be at 1.30 p.m. following
Thursday.
If you have any doubts regarding the date, press F4 on the time of transmission. The
system will display a calendar, where you mark the date with the cursor you wish the
message sent. You can also scroll forward, or back in the calendar with "page up"
and "page down".
WRKJOBSCDE
Combine SMS BlueNote with IBM job scheduler.
You can also use the OS/400 own job scheduler to send a message. It can e.g be a
message that confirms to the IT manager that the SMS system is active.
Example - This message is sent to Joe each morning at 8:
ADDJOBSCDE JOB(DAILY) CMD(SMS/SNDSMSMSG TEXT('Morning – SMS is active')
USRPRF(JOE)) FRQ(*WEEKLY) SCDDATE(*NONE) SCDDAY(*ALL) CDTIME('08:00:00')

On the screen the first 45 characters of the message are shown.
68
Chapter 5. System surveillance on iSeries
SMS BlueNote can be connected to message queues on OS/400, so that the
AS/400 or iSeries automatically sends system messages to the GSM phones of the
system operators. The system operator will always be able to supervise the jobs on
evenings, nights, and weekend, without being near a monitor. The GSM unit enables
the system operator to answer on all *REPLY messages that are sent from the
AS/400 or iSeries.
All types of system messages can be sent from AS/400. The system
messages have priority after message queue and severity level.
Registration of system operators. Optional duty planning.
Alarm function. All types of telephones can be reached with an alarm call,
generated by serious system errors.
User defined communication protocol.
Runs it's own sub-system.
SMS BlueNote's own data queues gives minimal strain on the system.
API functions.
Starts automatically after IPL. (Optional).
The same system operator can supervise several iSeries or AS/400, at the
same time.
Different system operators can supervise special fields of responsibillity.
_______________________________________________________________________________
5.1. Principles of monitoring.
SMS BlueNote can monitor on almost all activities on AS/400. You can monitor on a
single message, on a message queue, message file, job, user profile and a conditional
monitoring. Messages regarding all movements on AS/400 can be sent as SMS to a
GSM phone. This is however not practical - This is why SMS BlueNote gives you the
option to set up a filter, and narrows down the number of messages sent to the system
operators GSM phone.
The new features in this version are:
The message queue will not lock QUESEC while monitoring so you will not have to
stop the BlueNote subsystem in order to answer on a message.
Multiple users can monitor the AS/400 simultaneously - but also on different stages.
Example: The IT-manager is always monitoring the AS/400, but is only notified on
say 5 - 6 critical items of his own choice. The person who are the operator on duty,
will get these as well as other messages set up in the message filter. A super critical
message like Desk Crash can be sent to the whole IT-staff - regardless of duty plans.
69
Enhanced message filter.
You can include and omit on system messages - but it is also possible, in deep detail, to
pinpoint jobs, users, programs etc. It is also possible to set up rules for auto-reply.
Severity override.
You can define your own severity level for messages sent from BlueNote and make a
"Severity Override" enabling you to define your own severity groups. You can let
messages with a certain severity level raise a tone alarm while being sent, while all
other messages, with a lower severity - only are sent as SMS.
The BlueNote monitoring system can also create break messages for the system
operator's AS/400 display.
70
5.2. Work with duty plan.
SMS Blue Note gives you the possibility to create a duty plan, where you, in
advance, determine who will receive the system messages.
In order to connect SMS BlueNote to IBM's Job Scheduler you must use the
commands ADDSMSDTYE and RMVSMSDTYE.
Below is an example on how you create a weekend duty for Joe, who is going to be
the system operator in charge, every weekend from Friday afternoon at 16.00 to
Monday morning at 08.00.
Start duty.
Enter the following command:
ADDJOBSCDE JOB(SMSSTR) CMD (ADDSMSDTYE ACTEXT('Weekend duty for
Joe') USRPRF(JOE) FRQ(*WEEKLY) SCDDATE(*NONE) SCDDAY(*FRI)
SCDTIME(160000)
End duty.
Enter the following command:
ADDJOBSCDE
JOB(SMSEND)
CMD(RMVSMSDTYE)
SCDDATE(*NONE) SCDDAY(*MON) SCDTIME(080000)
FRQ(*WEEKLY)
To add a new duty to the duty plan, use the command ADDSMSDTYE.
To end a duty or rotation from the duty plan, use the command RMVSMSDTYE.
Type 8 on the main menu in order to access the screen Work with duty scheduling:
The Key "F16=Users on duty" displays, with user ID, who is on duty. If there is no
system operator on duty, when you look at the screen, it will say *None.
The list is shown in falling sequence.
In order to form a general view, we recommend, that you use the OS/400 command
WRKJOBSCDE JOB(SMS*).
71
5.2.1. Change special duty plan.
During the weekly planning we recommend that you use the IBM Job Scheduler. But
if you have to create special duty plans, for instance during holidays, you can change
the duty plan from the SMS BlueNote main menu.
Select menu option 8 from the main menu to enter "Work with duty plan".
You can create a duty, by pressing the F6 key, or you can Change a duty, by typing
2=Change.

5.3. Work with message queues and filters.
Type 9 on the main menu, in order to access the screen Work with message
queues:
Here you have the option to define which message queues to be supervised.
Queue:
Library:
Name of the queue
Name of the library
By pressing F6 you can create the message queue to be connected to SMS.
73
5.4. Work with Message severity override
By typing 10=Message Severity Overrides, you have the option to create a
positive/negative list of the messages you want to monitor.
There will always be known messages with a high severity level, you do wish to
receive - or to omit. It could for instance be a message, concerning the printer:
You can also find yourself in a situation, where know messages should be answered
on automatically - or handled by a preset pattern.
The OS/400 severity level set by IBM does not necessarily match what you actually
consider severe, running the jobs on your iSeries. SMS BlueNote gives you the
possibility to override these and define your own severity level.
74
The selection criteria's.
Sequence:
0-999
Sequence is the order in which messages are handled.
Example: If two messages have the same message ID -it
could be different jobs - you can in this field determine,
which message is to be handled first.
Description
Type a short decription of the rule.
Message ID:
Name, generic*, *ANY, *BLANK
Type message ID on the message to be retrieved, or left
out, from the message queue. For further information about
message queues - see handling of message queues
Message file:
Name, *ANY
Message file where the selected MSGID is typed.
E.g. "QCPFMSG". If *ANY are selected the message would
be treated indifferently to which message file the message
ID are found in.
Library
Name, generic*, *ANY
Message queue
Library
Job name
User profile
Subsystem
Name, generic*, *ANY
Name, *LIBL, *ANY
Name, generic*, *ANY
Name, generic*, *ANY
Name, generic*, *ANY
The resulting message rule.
Severity Override:
Duty group
00-99, *INCLUDE, *OMIT
Messages above this severity level will be monitored and
sent as SMS. It is possible for you to define (override) your
own severity level on SMS BlueNote. If you enter a new
value - it will override the original severity level (but only in
SMS BlueNote). You can thus determine if a message
should be monitored - even if the original severity level
indicated otherwise. You can also permanently Include or
Omit a message from the system.
Duty Grups A-Z can monitor special fields of responsibillity.
Blank will supervise all events included in the filter.
Example:
Smith is Duty Group “AAA” and monitors QSYSOPR.
Jones is Duty Group “BBB” and monitors WINDOWS Servers
Hanson is Duty Group “CCC” and Monitors the main printer.
Jensen has “Blank” value and monitors all above.
75
Information to be compared.
Option
*NONE, *PGM, *CMP
The field can indicate special options for Severity override
for a message. There are the following options
*NONE
No special action is taken.
*PGM
The filter program will be called every time this message ID appears.
The Parameter list to the program must be as follows:
1. Parameter: Level override to be returned (Output)
2. Parameter: Retrieve Message format RTVM0200 (Input).
For more information for format RTVM0200 see OS/400
manual "System Programmer's Interface Reference" guide
(SC41-4801) under "Retrieve Message (QMHRTVM) API".
*CMP
Override of level will first happen when the conditions for
"Compare with" are fulfilled.
*CMP option: *EQ, *NE, *LIKE, *NLIKE
If *CMP is indicated in the field "Option" there must be a comparison
possibility in this field.
The combinations are as follows:
*EQ
Message data must hold the exact value indicated in the field "Compare
with", before the Severity Overide are used.
*NE
Message data must NOT hold the exact value which is indicated in the
field Compare with", before Severity override are used.
76
*LIKE
Message data are scanned for the value that is indicated in the field
"Compare with". If the value are found - the "severity override will be
used.
*NLIKE
Message data are scanned for the value which id indicated in the field
"Compare with". The severity override will be used if values are NOT
found.
Compare with:
Enter compare values in this field. Hex data can be entered with
the use of X' (example X'4711') .

SMS BlueNote can be prepared for only sending a message once (Type 15 in the
main menu). The system can control against identical messages on MSG ID, Text,
and receiver. You do not have to worry, that a program suddenly "loops", and thereby
sends the same message endlessly to the operator on duty's GSM mobile phone.
77
5.5. Duty Reply Chain
You can find yourself in a situation where an SMS message is sent to a pre-defined
number, but is unable to bee responded, because of various difficulties encountered
(mobile phone switched off, mobile phone in a non reception area, etc).
This can be a problem if the SMS message is of great importance and will need the
rapid intervention.
SMS BlueNote gives you the opportunity to prepare at backup for such a situation by
creating a Duty Reroute Chain.
The Duty Reroute Chain is a number of people that will receive the SMS message in
case the original message remains unanswered for X seconds. The message will be
passed on to the next person in the chain and rotate in the chain until the message
is finally answered.
Go to the SMS BlueNote main menu.
Select Option 7.” Work with Duty Re-route Chain”
Press F6 to create the members
of the chain.
The unanswered message will
always rotate in the order
indicated.
Example:
If “Kaj” is the operator on duty and the message is unanswered the message will be
rotated forward to “Bent” then “Frank” and then back to Kaj again.
The message will continue to rotate until it is answered.
The forwarding time of the message is default set to 1800 seconds – that is 30
minutes.
78
You can reduce/speed up the time by changing the Data Area manually.
Example - Change to 15 minutes:
ChgDtaAra DtaAra(SMS/DRCTime) Value(X'00900F')
The reaction time MUST NOT have a lower value than the one used in “Poll
Message Queue” in option 15 maintain System values.
Note:
System messages that are answered manually (via a terminal) must be deleted
after the reply (use the F11 key) as long as “Duty Reroute Chain” is active.
79
5.6. The subsystem
SMS Blue Note has been designed to run it's own system. In this system there is
always just one job at the time. Therefore SMS BlueNote gives minimal strain on
your system.
Type 21 on the main menu, in order to access SMS status for line, controller and
unit:
Here you can follow how SMS BlueNote communicates with the environment. For
instance you can se if a modem is turned off.
The line is only varied on when SMS BlueNote actually communicates.
5.7. Monitor Hardware. “Low-level” messages.
It is possible to monitor on "low -level" messages like Hardware. It will however
require that you create the following message queue:
===> CRTMSGQ MSGQ(QSYS/QSYSMSG) TEXT
('Message queue for critical system messages')
This queue is not default but it will handle all the "system related messages.
Once it is created it can be monitored in SMS BlueNote.
See the IBM's manual SC41-4203-00 for more information.
Info can also be reached at:
http://www-900.ibm.com/cn/support/library/as400/download/qbjagd00.pdf
Search for QSYSMSG. The following pages are an extrax.
80
Handling Important System Messages in the QSYSMSG Message Queue
The QSYSMSG message queue is an optional message queue that you create in
the QSYS library. The QSYSMSG message queue can be used to monitor specific
system messages that indicate potentially severe system conditions. Only messages
that require immediate action are sent to the QSYSMSG message queue.
Monitor the QSYSMSG message queue to be aware of critical messages related to
your system.
Creating the QSYSMSG Message Queue
To create the QSYSMSG message queue, enter the following command:
CRTMSGQ QSYS/QSYSMSG +
TEXT ('optional MSGQ to receive specific system messages')
Once the QSYSMSG message queue is created, certain specific system messages
are directed to it. For example, the following message would be sent to the
QSYSMSG message queue:
CPF0907 Serious storage condition may exist. Press HELP.
For a complete listing and description of these messages, see Chapter 8, "Working
With Messages" in the CL Programming book.
You can write a break-handling program that monitors messages sent to the
QSYSMSG message queue and takes action on specific messages you identify.
Handling Error Messages
To set up a program to receive messages from the QSYSMSG message queue,
see Chapter 8, "Working With Messages" in the CL Programming manual.
A few important points about QSYSMSG:
1.
2.
You must create it in QSYS.
IBM decides what messages are sent to QSYSMSG, not you.
Furthermore, IBM also determines which QSYSMSG messages are not send
to QSYSOPR.
The types of messages that go to both are:
-
DASD failure under RAID-5 for mirroring
Critical storage messages
Power failure/restore messages
Typically security hacking types of messages are not sent to QSYSOPR,
only QSYSMSG (if QSYSMSG exists in QSYS).
81
82
Chapter 6. API's and the SNDSMSMSG command
The BlueNote APIs allow the programmer, to integrate his own applications direct
with SMS BlueNote.
You can call the SNDSMSMSG command from your own applications.
The SNDSMSMSG command has in addition to the standards parameters; User
profile, Distribution list, Country code and Phone number - three additional
parameters:
User Key’.
The field can be used for internal handling. It can hold e.g. a customer
number.The value of the filed is NOT forwarded with the SMS.
It is displayed in the log in option 2. Work with messages and for query reports
in the file MSG00.
Sender ID.
This is for Gateways only. You can add a Sender ID that will replace the Sender
ID that is used default in the Gateway. See option 12 “Work with operators”.
Operator ID
You can select the operator on this message from option 12 “Work with
operators”.
Send a SMS message (#SndSmsM) allows you to let a program send a SMS
message with a preset text. The command SNDSMSMSG will normally be sufficient.

Chapter 8. Work with inbound SMS
The GSM unit makes it possible for SMS BlueNote to handle inbound SMS’ in
many ways.
It enables the iSeries system operator to send replies to system messages
originally sent to him from SMS BlueNote. The technique does also enable the
system to send SMS messages that will trigger and/or execute programs on the
iSeries.
SMS BlueNote can receive SMS sent from any GSM phone in the world and
deliver it to an OS/400 message queue.
Inbound SMS are received via a GSM unit that is connected to the iSeries. The
GSM unit uses its own GSM number, and all SMS messages sent to the machine
are sent to this number.
Flow for AS/400 system messages, which needs reply.
SMS BlueNote is installed on the iSeries and activates a system message which
is sent as SMS, to the system operator on duty.
If this is a message, which needs reply e.g. "C" for "Cancel", the system operator
senda this "C" back as SMS to the iSeroes. The SMS message is received on the
GMS unit.
The system operator can also send a SMS message direct to the iSeries and
trigger a program.
Flow for inbound SMS to OS/400 message queue or mail systems.
SMS BlueNote is installed on AS/400 and you can 1) send a simple SMS
message, which is 2), received on the recipients GSM phone. A reply can be 3)
sent back to the company where it is received on 4) the GSM unit.
You can define a set of rules for the handling of inbound SMS.

A SMS can by choice, be sent to any OS/400 user profile by choice

Replies to SMS messages originating from a user on SMS BlueNote will
be returned to that particular user. A default user can work as backup.

Inbound SMS can be forwarded as email.

A SMS message can be sent to trigger an event on a third party
application.
95
8.1 Work with rules:
Before you start receiving SMS messages on the AS/400 you must set up a set of
rules. This is to ensure that the SMS messages are routed to the right message
queue, and that replies for a system message only are given once.
There is an option 13 "Work With Inbound Rules" where you can set up the rules
for the different SMS message types sent to the AS/400.
You can create you own set of rules but you can for starters use these:
User message Link
*USRMSGLNK
A Link is created between a SMS BlueNote user and the phone number of the
recipient’s mobile phone. Any SMS that is sent from this particular mobile phone
will be routed direct to the OS/400 message queue of the SMS BlueNote user.
The User Message Link will change once a SMS is sent from another SMS
BlueNote user profile.
The User Message Link will also implement a Default who will receive all
inbound SMS messages that is sent from “unlisted” mobile phones.
User message
*USRMSG
A SMS message is sent direct to a user profile (message queue) on the AS/400.
Distribution message
*DSTMSG
The SMS message is sent to SNADS network distribution (OV/400) recipients
on the AS/400.
Call user program
*PGM
You can send a SMS message that activates an AS/400 program.
Reply system message
*REPLY
You can from you GSM phone reply on system messages originally sent to you
from your iSeries or AS/400.
96
8.2 Send a SMS Reply for a System message.
You can use this method to answer on system messages sent to your iSeries.
The first message that is sent from the iSeries via SMS BlueNote, will have the
prefix AA? . The next will be named AB?, AC? and so forth, until your reach the
combination ZZ? . The system will then start all over with AA?
Note - All system messages sent from iSeries via SMS BlueNote, and which
requires an answer - will include a question mark (?) as the third character.
We recommend that you define a rule, where you reply the system messages
with an exclamation mark (!). :
Example:
You want to reply a system message with the prefix AA? with the reply "C" for
"Cancel".
Select the option "Reply message" on your GSM phone.
Write the reply:
Start the message with the prefix:
Followed by:
AA!
C
Your GSM display reads:
AA!C
Send the message from you GSM phone.
Note - This is pr. profile. If both Smith and Jones are scheduled on the duty plan
when monitoring the iSeries - they will each get AA? the first message which
needs reply.
Remember - It is still the priority system in SMS BlueNote, which have got the
"last say". If a message need reply is in itself not reason enough, for it to be sent
from the iSeries
We have enclosed a small test program that divides by zero: Severity 99
SBMJOB CMD(CALL PGM(SMS/SMS997))
97
8.3 Create rules
You can create you own rules for incoming SMS. Press F6 Create. It brings you
to the following panel:
Example 1: User Message
Create rules to send a SMS message to a given user profile on AS/400.
We will in this example show how you can send a SMS message to a user
profile on AS/400. The SMS message "enters the AS/400" via one GSM number
shared by all user profiles, so you must set up a rule to route the message
further in the system.
A person, who wants to send a SMS message from his GSM phone to the
AS/400, must in this example write the following:
1) The name of the user profile
2) Followed by (dash)
3) Followed by the message text.
You can use "Test command string" to simulate the text, you write on the display
on the GSM phone. This example shows a text message sent as SMS to the
QSYSOPR.
Write the text e.g.:
98
QSYSOPR-This is a user message test
Press F10 to validate the rule. The text "Test completed, match found and
executed at sequence number 001." must appear.
You will be rejected if the rule is wrongly defined, and you does thus not need to
us e telephone time to test the rules you defines/invents.
Note - We have in the example chosen a dash (-) because it is very illustrative!.
(See column "Value", Seq 20.)
You might in the daily routine find that the character for "space" is better to find
and use on most GSM keyboards and you would subsequently had indicated a
"space" under "Value"
Example:
You want to send a message to the OS400 user profile JOHN, warning you are
late for a meeting. Activate the write message function on you GSM phone and
simply write:
JOHN I am 2 hours late.
Send the SMS message.
JOHN will in his message queue read the inbound message "I am 2 hours late."
You can also add a selection of characters under "Value" so you have choice
between the characters which activates the main message e.g.: -: .? (dash,
colon, space, period and question mark).
This opens for the following type of SMS message:
JOHN I am 2 hours late.
JOHN:I am 2 hours late.
JOHN?I am 2 hours late.
JOHN-I am 2 hours late.
JOHN.I am 2 hours late.
PLEASE NOTE. It is not advisable to use blanks if you use *USRMSGLNK.
There can be a conflict if you are using space and “User Message Link” is active.
Example: You have an OS/400 user profile named JOE, and the name “Joe” is
mentioned first in a SMS that is sent as a reply to another person on SMS
BlueNote. This SMS will be routed to “Joe” if you are using blanks.
The SMS can break as a normal OS/400 message on the “green screen”. The
“SMS WEB Client” will also notify the user (e.g. John) that he has received a
SMS.
99
User message link
A Link is created between a
SMS BlueNote user and the
phone number of the
recipient’s mobile phone. Any
SMS that is sent from this
particular mobile phone will be
routed direct to the OS/400
message queue of the SMS
BlueNote user.
The User Message Link will
change once a SMS is sent
from another SMS BlueNote
user profile.
The Link can be deactivated with a “Timeout” value. It will cause the inbound SMS
message to be routed to a “Default User Profile” after X minutes regardless of the
origination sender. 999999999 will keep the active Link indefinite.
The Default User Profile will regardless receive all inbound SMS messages that
are sent from “unlisted” mobile phones.
Distribution message
The SMS message is sent to

8.4.2 Execute a Command via inbound SMS
The purpose is to send a command string to iSeries in a format that makes it
possible to execute commands on the iSeries.
The string must consist of:
1. *CMD, to tell SMS BlueNote what inbound rule to use.
2. A user that must be validated:
a. Does the user exist on OS/400 (WRKUSRPRF) ?
b. Is the User on Duty (Active in option 8, Work with Duty Scheduling) ?
c. Is the inbound GSM number identical with the number on the user
profile
3. A text string indicating the command to be executed .
Example: *CMD PMH PWRDWN
This is done with a CLP program that looks like this:

Create a rule for inbound SMS
The idea is to use the last 10 characters to indicate what command that must be
executed. It should replaced SNDPGMMSG in the CL program.
Example:
IF
COND(&CMND = 'PWRDWN') THEN(PWRDWNSYS OPTION(*IMMED)
RESTART(*YES))
And so forth.
103
8.4.3 Inbound SMS with a fixed text
The GSM market holds a variety of alarms and measuring instruments with a built
in GSM unit.
These units can send a SMS with a text e.g.: “Temperature to high in room A”.
This alarm can be transmitted to the *SYSOPR queue and thus let the
particular unit be monitored by the duty staff.
The example shows how an inbound SMS containing the word “Temperature”
as first word are fetched and routed to the *SYSOPR queue.
’Temperature….’

Chapter 9. Activate the SMSemail module
SMS BlueNote has a built in email module giving you two features:
1) The system message can be sent to an e-mail address. (There is no reply option.)
2) Inbound SMS can be forwarded as an email.
Example 1: A system message.
Example 2: An inbound SMS.
The senders name will be displayed, if that person is known (created as a user)
in the address book.
A blank ( ) field indicates an unknown sender.
107
System requirements to the SMSEmail module:
a.) SMS BlueNote is installed and active.
b.) TCP/IP is installed and active on your iSeries.
c.) You have already access to an Internet Service Provider (ISP)
and can connect to a mail server (SMTP server).
d.) You must know the IP-address of your SMTP mail server.
PLEASE NOTE:
The SMSemail configuration cannot proceed unless the 4 options above are
in order!
9.1 SMSemail configuration.
SMSEmail requires that you have access to a
mail server (SMTP server). You will normally
connect SMSEmail via an Internet Service
Provider.
Example A).
The connection to you ISP (Internet Service
Provider) is established via an ISDN router.
The DNS address you are using is the address
of the ISP your ISDN line is connected to.
Note - The actual mail server can also be
located at a third party ISP on the net.
Example B).
Here is the connection to your ISP established
direct via SLIP Dial up from your AS/400.
The DNS address you write in SMS BlueNote
is the address of the ISP that is connected to
your AS/400´s SLIP.
Example C)
The connection is established via a PC that got
WINGATE installed.
The DNS address you write in SMS BlueNote is
the address of the actual PC that is connected to
your ISP.
Example D)
An alternative is to connect a mail server direct
on your own iSeries or AS/400.
The DNS address indicated in SMS BlueNote, is the AS/400´s own IP address.
108
This solution is only recommended to companies who already uses their AS/400
as Internet server
Example E)
Works as seen in example A. But with that
difference that the AS/400 communicates with
a local mail server, that handles all the
outgoing communication.
See the following page for explanation of
special terms.
ISDN
(Integrated Services Digital Network) An international telecommunications
standard for transmitting voice, video and data over digital lines running at 64
Kbps. The telephone companies commonly use a 64 Kbps channel for digitized,
two-way voice conversations.
ADSL
Short for Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line, a new technology that allows more
data to be sent over existing copper telephone lines (POTS). ADSL supports data
rates of from 1.5 to 9 Mbps when receiving data (known as the downstream rate)
and from 16 to 640 Kbps when sending data (known as the upstream rate).
ADSL requires a special ADSL modem.
Mail server
A computer in a network, that provides "post office" facilities. It stores incoming
mail for distribution to users and forwards outgoing mail through the appropriate
channel. The term may refer to just the software that performs this service, which
can reside on a machine with other services.
DNS
(Domain Name System) Name resolution software that lets users locate
computers on a UNIX network or the Internet (TCP/IP network) by domain name.
The DNS server maintains a database of domain names (host names) and their
corresponding IP addresses. In this hypothetical example, if
www.mycompany.com were presented to a DNS server, the IP address
204.0.8.51 would be returned. DNS has replaced the manual task of updating
HOSTS files in an inhouse UNIX network, and of course, it would be impossible
to do this manually on the global Internet, given its size.
POP3
(Post Office Protocol 3) A standard mail server commonly used on the Internet. It
provides a message store that holds incoming e-mail until users log on and
download it. POP3 is a simple system with little selectivity. All pending messages
and attachments are downloaded at the same time. POP3 uses the SMTP
messaging protocol.
109
ISP (Internet service provider)
An organization that provides access to the Internet. Small Internet service
providers (ISPs) provide service via modem and ISDN while the larger ones also
offer private line hookups (T1, fractional T1, etc.). Customers are generally billed
a fixed rate per month, but other charges may apply. For a fee, a Web site can be
created and maintained on the ISP's server, allowing the smaller organization to
have a presence on the Web with its own domain name.
IP address
(Internet Protocol address) The address of a computer attached to a TCP/IP
network. Every client and server station must have a unique IP address. Client
workstations have either a permanent address or one that is dynamically
assigned to them each dial-up session. IP addresses are written as four sets of
numbers separated by periods; for example, 204.171.64.2.
SLIP
(Serial Line IP) A data link protocol for dial-up access to TCP/IP networks. It is
commonly used to gain access to the Internet as well as to provide dial-up access
between two LANs. SLIP transmits IP packets over any serial link (dial up or
private lines).
SMTP
(Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) The standard e-mail protocol on the Internet. It is
a TCP/IP protocol that defines the message format and the message transfer
agent (MTA), which stores and forwards the mail. SMTP was originally designed
for only ASCII text, but MIME and other encoding methods enable program and
multimedia files to be attached to e-mail messages.
SMTP servers route SMTP messages throughout the Internet to a mail server,
such as POP3 or IMAP4, which provides a message store for incoming mail.
TCP/IP
(Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) A communications protocol
developed under contract from the U.S. Department of Defense to internetwork
dissimilar systems. This de facto UNIX standard, which is the protocol of the
Internet, is becoming the global standard for communications.
TCP provides transport functions, which ensures that the total amount of bytes
sent is received correctly at the other end. UDP is an alternate transport that does
not guarantee delivery. It is widely used for real-time voice and video
transmissions where erroneous packets are not retransmitted.
IP provides the routing mechanism. TCP/IP is a routable protocol, which means
that all messages contain not only the address of the destination station, but the
address of a destination network. This allows TCP/IP messages to be sent to
multiple networks within an organization or around the world. Every client and
server in a TCP/IP network requires an IP address, which is either permanently
assigned or dynamically assigned at startup.

9.2 Activate the SMSEmail module
Before you install the module make sure that you have checked the four bullets in
the beginning of this chapter.
Open option 15 “ Work with System Values” on the menu.
Scroll to the second page.
BlueMail information:
SMTP Server name or IP address:
The address of your SMTP server.
Reply e-mail address:
The e-mail address of you system operator.
NOTE: This must be a valid email
address.
Check also in option 4 “Work with users” that all email addresses are genuine.
For system monitoring:
1)
Select option 4 "Work with users"
Find you user profile
Use 2=change and scroll to second panel.
Set the value at "E-mail Filter Level" (High number = Few Messages)
Any value in this field - but *NONE - will also cause inbound SMS to be
forwarded as email.
or
2)
Select option 8 "Work with duty plan"
Find your (active) user profile
Use 2=change
Set the value at “E-mail Filter Level" (High number = Few Messages )
The value can be typed in or you can use *DFT
For forwarding inbound SMS as email:
1)
Select option 4 "Work with users"
Find you user profile
Use 2=change and scroll to second panel.
Set the value at “E-mail Filter Level" to *ANY
111
9.3 Trouble shooting the SMSemail module
If there are problems with activating the SMSEmail module, you should try to
look for 3rd party reasons.
You can run a test - using Telnet - that will show if your connection to the POP3
server is working OK.
Write: telnet ’<POP 3 server ip address>’ port(25) as shown:
2) The system must answer”220 xxxxxx ” as shown below:
xxxxxx is your server name.
This will confirm that you have access.
End the session by pressing
Type QUIT and Enter.

Warning
Error
Integrated to SMS BlueNote filter system
All SMS are sent from iSeries or AS/400
SMS BlueNote is installed on your AS/400 and it is from there up to you to decide which
other units in the network that are to be monitored. You are simply installing a “probe” on the
Windows (NT, 2000 & XP) Server or workstation. All movements from the event viewer in
question will be transferred to SMS BlueNote on your AS/400. A filter will ensure that only
the important messages - e.g. disk error or virus warnings - are forwarded as SMS to the IT
operator on duty.
The system will also “listen for the heartbeat” of the monitored server or workstation. The IT
operator will instantly be flagged by SMS in case a monitored unit is unexpectedly removed
from the network.
The constant signal between server/workstation and SMS BlueNote makes it also possible
to monitor on performance on the unit in question.
_____________________________________________________________________________
10.1 Activate the Windows Monitor
The “Windows Monitor” is automatically installed when you install the PC client for SMS
BlueNote on the Server or Workstation.
Note: The installation itself will not activate the monitor. The “Windows Monitor” must be
activated manually.
You must also make sure that you’re the Server /Workstation is covered by your license.
SMS BlueNote will note register/Monitor the Server/Workstation if the number of Windows
Monitors exceeds the number stated in the key code Option 50.
Do as follows to activate the Windows Monitor
Open BlueNote in your Program List.
113
Open ”Windows Monitor Configuration”
Press, ”Start” to activate the Monitor. The
Server /Workstation will be listed as
”Online” in Option 91 ”Work with Server
Status”
Press “Stop” to deactivate the ”Windows
Monitor”. It can e.g. be necessary to
deactivate the ”Windows Monitor” if you
want to move you license to another
Server/Workstation.
Use ”Start Type” to decide if the Monitor
should be restarted automatically or
manually after the Server/Workstation has
been ”booted”.
The Windows Monitor will copy all the files from the Event Log to the iSeries. The clean up
rutine in option 15 will only have effect on files older than the oldest file in the Event Log.
________________________________________________________________________________
10.2 View the Event log
Use the event log to collect information regarding problems related to hardware, software
and system in general.
114
Windows NT, 2000 & XP will register the events as Information, Warning & Error in different
log files. This is NOT a static list – other log types can be added all depending on the
system.
Using Event Viewer and event logs, you can gather information about hardware, software,
and system problems and monitor Windows security events. Windows records as standard
events in three kinds of logs:
Application log
The application log contains events logged by programs. For example, a database program
might record a file error in the programs log. Program developers decide which events to
monitor.
Security log
The security log contains valid and invalid logon attempts as well as events related to
resource use, such as creating, opening, or deleting files or other objects. For example, if
you have enabled logon and logoff auditing, attempts to log on to the system are recorded in
the security log.
System log
The system log contains events logged by the Windows 2000 system components. For
example, the failure of a driver or other system component to load during startup is recorded
in the system log. The event types logged by system components are predetermined by
Windows 2000.
The different log’s operates with five different event types.
Type
Description
A significant problem, such as loss of data or loss of functionality. For
Error
example, if a service fails to load during startup, an error will be logged.
An event that is not necessarily significant, but may indicate a possible
Warning
future problem. For example, when disk space is low, a warning will be
logged.
An event that describes the successful operation of an application, driver,
Information or service. For example, when a network driver loads successfully, an
Information event will be logged.
An audited security access attempt that succeeds. For example, a user's
Success
successful attempt to log on the system will be logged as a Success Audit
Audit
event.
An audited security access attempt that fails. For example, if a user tries to
Failure
access a network drive and fails, the attempt will be logged as a Failure
Audit
Audit event.
115
10.3 Work with the Windows Log.
You control the monitoring of the Server/Workstation by these panels:
You will on the mobile phone receive a SMS containing:
The name of the unit e.g. LDKEXP01
Type; ”W” for Warning, ”E” for Error and ”I” for Information.
Event ID: e.g. ”31002”
Description. As much of the description as possible
The syntax is
Computer name; Type; ID; Description
Example of an SMS:
The enclosed event will generate a SMS whit the
following text:
DKEXP01; E; 31002; The DNS proxy agent was
unable to bind to the IP address 192.168.5.201.
This error may indicate a problem with TCP/IP
networking. The data is
The SMS text is shortened in this example due
to the 160-character limit.
There will be a small deviation in the “Time”
because SMS BlueNote uses the timestamp from
the GSM operator rater from the Server or
Workstation
If the computer looses connection (Dead Link) by
accident a message will be sent to the system
operator (normally QSYSOPR). This message can
be picked up by SMS BlueNote standard procedure. Example: A power failure causes a
situation where a Server or Workstation looses connection the network. SMS BlueNote
Windows monitor react by sending the message ID "MON1001" (Severity 99) to *SYSOPR
message queue.
Read chapter 5 on how to handle this message.
116
10.3.1 Work with Windows log filter
Use option 91 ” Work with Server log Overrides” to define the filter and to determine
which messages that are to be sent to the IT operator on duty.
The monitor software will copy all Event Log Data onto the AS/400, but the IT
operator on duty will of course only receive the with timestamp after duty start.
Press F6 to create a message filter. First time installation will not present you with
any filters and no Windows messages will be sent. When you set out to define the
filters, have in mind that it is advisable to “be careful when opening the bag”. You
can e.g. chose to only select “Error” as “Type”.
Enter the information and press Enter.
117
Resulting Severity:
Windows have no severity level, as you know it from the OS/400. So whenever you
create a rule you add a ”Severity Level” that will be linked to this particular rule.
This will enable SMS BlueNote’s standard severity handling to take action. You can
also choose to determine that the rule means that the message is permanently
included (*INCLUDE) or omitted (*OMIT).
Duty group
Duty Grups A-Z can be used to special fields of
responsibillity.
Blank will supervise all events included in the filter.
Example:
Smith is Duty Group “A” and monitors PC’s.
Jones is Duty Group “B” and monitors WINDOWS Servers
Jensen has “Blank” value and monitors both above including the
iSeries or AS/400.

10.3.2 Work with Server Status
Menu Option 92 ” Work with Server Status”.
The SMS BlueNote Basic and Complete license comes with one free Windows
Monitor but it is possible to purchase and add as many Windows Monitors you like.
Use this panel to control which, Servers or workstations you want monitored. You
can use 2=Change to give the unit a more comprehensive name e.g. “Joe’s Laptop”.
The license system will simply count the “online units” and you will get a full overview
here. A unit can be temporarily neutralized by using 3=Hold and 6=Release. The
monitor will however be reactivated if the Server/workstation is restarted. Use the
controls on the Windows Monitor software to deactivate a Windows Monitor
permanently.
“Work with Server Status”

You can find your selves in a situation, where a program has generated several hundred
messages that you would like to delete in one go.
Do as follows:
Stop the Subsystem
Write :
CLRPFM MSG00
Start the Subsystem
Note.
CLRPFM MSG00 will delete everything in the log!
_________________________________________________________________________________
11.2 Query the SMS log MSG00
Gateway user that send with different user ID’s through the same entry point can create
their owns statistics on the SMS log with Query STS001.
RUNQRY QRY(STS001) QRYFILE((MSG00))
121
11.3 Trace.
Situations can arise where is it can be practical for the Support Team to view a ”trace” –
that is a description of the communication between SMS BlueNote and the SMS center of
your GSM operator.
Do as follows:
Stop SMS BlueNote subsystem. (use option 18)
Start the “Trace” for a line with the command:
CHGDTAARA DTAARA(ASYNCDBG) VALUE('1')
Restart the subsystem (use option 17)
Try to send a SMS message from menu option 1.
Stop the subsystem (use option 18)
WRKSPLF BLUEBOXUSR
Find the file “QPCSMPRT” and send it to support@agentdata.com
End the ”Trace” for the line:
CHGDTAARA DTAARA(ASYNCDBG) VALUE('0')
Restart the subsystem (use option 17)
******
Note
The user profile that creates the trace must have *SERVICE authority.

11.4 End the jobs for Web Client, PC Client and Windows Monitor.
The jobs for the Web client, PC Client and Windows Monitor can be terminated manually.
Set the following data areas to zero ’0’
STRPCCLI - Start PC client Server in Subsystem
STRWEBSVR - Start WEB server in Subsystem
STRWINMON - Start WINMON in Subsystem
They are all found in the database library, normally “SMSDB”.
(The data areas will be reset after each software upgrade)
122
11.5 Remove the software from your machine.
The following objects must be removed:
• Library SMS – Use command DLTLIB
• Library SMSDB - Use command DLTLIB
• Library SMSDBnnn Use command DLTLIB (where nnn is serial
number 001-999)
• Object SMS *MENU from library QGPL (Use command DLTMNU)
• Directory /BlueNote and all subdirs – Use command edtf
'/bluenote*' and use option “9=Recursive Delete” next to the directory
BlueNote.
• RMVAJE SBSD(QCTL) JOB(STRSMS)
• Line, controller and device for the communication – Use commands
DLTLIND, DLTCTLD and DLTDEVD.
• Remove the BLUEBOXUSR – use command DLTUSRPRFF
BLUEBOXUSR. This command should remove the user profile
and the attached message queue as well, but sometimes the
message queue remains after deleting the user profile. To remove
the message queue use the command DLTMSGQ
MSGQ(BLUEBOXUSR).
