To configure the Adapter Platform, you attach the Global Manager to the Adapter Platform and specify the underlying IP Availability Manager domain or domains. Doing so enables the Adapter Platform to import hostnames and IP addresses from the underlying IP Availability Manager domains so that it can accurately relate events in received traps to the devices that are associated with the events. The Adapter Platform creates VMware Smart Assurance notification objects from the events, and exports the notifications to the Global Manager.
The procedure to configure the Adapter Platform is identical to the procedure that is presented in “Specifying the underlying domains” on page 65.
To attach the Global Manager Administration Console to your Adapter Platform:
In the Global Manager Administration Console, select Manager > Attach to display the Attach Manager dialog box.
In the Attach Manager dialog box, enter the Adapter Platform name and the login information (for example, admin and changeme) and click OK.
In the Global Manager Administration Console, select the Adapter Platform name from the Manager drop-down menu.
The VMware Smart Assurance Service Assurance Manager Adapter Platform User Guide provides a complete description of the Adapter Platform.
