Meridian Mail ADAN Programming

Meridian Mail uses two (ADAN) data ports on the Meridian 1 switch:

Applications Module Link (AML), also known as the Command and Status Link (CSL), communicates commands and status information between Meridian Mail and the Meridian 1. It is programmed in LD 17, printed in LD 22, and administered in LD 48.

If Meridian Mail is not responding, enter LD 48, and check the AML status:

.stat aml

  LYR2: DISABLED    LYR7: DOWN DSBL 

Enter ENL AML n ACMS to initiate the AML Auto Setup sequence, and establish the link.
You may have to DIS AML n first, if enabled but not repsonding.

.enl aml 9 acms                   - Initiate the AML Auto Setup sequence...
.stat aml 9
AML: 09 ESDI: 09
