By default, the MPLS Topology Server automatically imports topology whenever IP Availability Manager completes a discovery cycle.

You can edit the mpls.conf file and disable this behavior. The line to be edited is:

# StopAutoAMSync = TRUE

To disable automatic topology synchronization with IP Availability Manager:

  1. Go to the BASEDIR/smarts/bin directory in the MPLS Management Suite installation area and type the following command to open the mpls.conf file:

                   sm_edit conf/mpls-t/mpls.conf
  2. Find the section, Discovery options, and then find the following line:

    # StopAutoAMSync = TRUE
  3. Uncomment the line by removing the # character.

  4. Save and close the file.

    The modified version of the mpls.conf file is saved to the BASEDIR/smarts/local/conf/mpls-t directory.

  5. If the MPLS Topology Server was running before you edited the mpls.conf file, restart the MPLS Topology Server.
