The sample customer script failover_post-AMPM-sample.pl 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 failover_post-AMPM-sample.pl 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 failover_post-AMPM-sample.pl 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.
