To configure Server Manager to communicate with Orchestartor, specify the Orchestrator administrator credentials and the IP address of the Orchestrator host.

Prerequisites

For this task, when you use the console, you need to have Smarts administrator credentials to open the Configure menu where you specify the Orchestrator credentials.

Procedure

  1. At BASEDIR/smarts/bin, type the following command:
    sm_edit conf/esm/esm-param.conf
  2. Enter the following line for Orchestrator
    # For providing orchestrator instance use below format
    ORCHESTRATOR-<orchestrator_IP_Address> VELOCLOUD

    For Example: ORCHESTRATOR- xx.xx.xx.xx VELOCLOUD

  3. Restart the ESM server if it is already running to take above configuration changes into effect.
  4. Open the Service Assurance Manager Global Console attached to the Server Manager (INCHARGE-ESM, by default).
  5. In the Topology Browser Console, select Configure > Domain Manager Administration Console.
  6. Right-click the ESM server in the left pane and select Configure ESM credentials.
