Most of the configuration tasks for configuring the Global Manager in an Application Connectivity Monitor deployment are accomplished using the Global Manager Administration Console.


The Application Connectivity Monitor 2.3 is compatible with the versions of the products listed in theVMware Smart Assurance Support Matrix Guide.

To configure the Global Manager, you use the Global Console to do the following:

  • For the SAM to import topology and events from the underlying components in an Application Connectivity Monitor Domain Manager deployment, you must configure the Global Manager with the proper data exchange adapter (DXA) files. The SAM integrates and correlates the imported topology and events, and relates the data to services and customers.
  • You must also configure Adapter Platform, Application Connectivity Monitor Domain Manager, and one or more IP Availability Managers as underlying sources for the Global Manager. “Specifying the underlying domains” describes how to specify underlying sources.

Detailed instructions on using the Global Console to complete Global Manager configurations are provided in the VMware Smart Assurance Service Assurance Manager Configuration Guide.
