By default, the MulticastGroup Impacted event for the multicast VPN feature is enabled. However, there may be occasions when impacted events that are related to the multicast VPN traffic should not be forwarded to the Global Manager.

You can edit the notfication.conf file and disable the impacted event. The line to be edited is:

# Enable_MulticastGroup_Impacted = FALSE

To disable the MulticastGroup Impacted event:

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

                   sm_edit conf/mpls-a/notification.conf
  2. Find the following line:

    # Enable_MulticastGroup_Impacted = FALSE
  3. Uncomment the line by removing the # character.

  4. Save and close the file.

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

  5. If the MPLS Analysis Server was running before you edited the notification.conf file, restart the MPLS Analysis Server
