The sample customer script is provided in the smarts/local/actions directory in the installation where Failover Manager resides.

The script is the mechanism that starts another VMware M&R collector to communicate with the Standby Domain Manager that is promoted to Active.

Unlike other failover_pre and failover_post hook scripts, the script is designed to work with only Domain Managers. It is named for the combined IP Availability and Performance Manager, but you rename and modify it in “Configure VMware M&R collectors for an VMware Smart Assurance failover” on page 59.

The script does not work with Service Assurance Manager, Business Impact Manager, Adapter Platform, Trap Exploder or Trap Adapter, because the VMware M&R smarts-collector does not collect data from these components.
