Before you can use SCOM to monitor and manage the state of View components, you must assign a name to the View Connection Server group in View. The Operations Manager console displays this name to help you identify the View Connection Server group within SCOM.

Before you begin

Become familiar with the vdmadmin command-line interface. For more information, see the View Administration document.

About this task

Note:

View Administrator does not display the View Connection Server group name.

Procedure

  1. Log in to one of the View Connection Server hosts in the View Connection Server group.
  2. At the command prompt, type the vdmadmin command with the -C and -c options.

    For example: vdmadmin -C -c group_name

    The -c option specifies the name to assign to the View Connection Server group.

Assigning a View Connection Server Group Name

In this example, the vdmadmin command sets the name of a View Connection Server group to VCSG01.

vdmadmin -C -c VCSG01
