As with most VMware Smart Assurance configuration files, the user configuration files for the IP Manager are used to set attributes for certain objects within a server’s environment when the server starts up. The parameters and their values in a configuration file become the attributes and their values for the created objects.

For the discovery.conf file, as an example, the associated object is an instance of the ICF_TopologyManager class and is named ICF-TopologyManager.

The VMware Smart Assurance IP Manager User Guide provides information on how to modify user configuration parameters.

Major part of configuring the IP Manager involves the setting of user configuration parameters in the files that are identified in User configuration files for the IP Manager.
