In addition to performing the configuration and administration tasks that are common to all Global Managers, you perform the following additional tasks to set up the Global Manager in an MPLS Manager deployment:

  • Set up communication links between the Global Manager and the MPLS Manager and IP Availability Manager applications (mandatory).

  • Enable access to the MPLS topology maps (optional).

  • Enable access to the MPLS remote ping and LSP ping server tools (optional).

  • Change LSP ping global values (optional).

    Chapter 6, “Configuring the Global Manager,” provides the procedures for performing these tasks. Procedures for configuring all aspects of the Global Manager are given in the VMware Smart Assurance Service Assurance Manager Configuration Guide.
