In addition to performing the configuration and administration tasks that are common to all IP Availability Managers, you perform the following additional tasks to set up IP Availability Manager in a Network Protocol Manager deployment:

  • Enable protocol light discovery (mandatory).

  • Enable overlapping IP address discovery (optional).

  • Create CLI device-access groups to enable Network Protocol Manager to perform CLI discovery and polling of devices that cannot be discovered or monitored by using SNMP (mandatory if EIGRP- or IS-IS-enabled Cisco devices are to be managed by Network Protocol Manager).

  • Configure SNMP trap integration to distribute network traps to IP Availability Manager (mandatory).

    Chapter 4, Configuring IP Availability Manager, and Chapter 6, Configuring SNMP Trap Integration, provide the procedures for performing these tasks. Procedures for configuring all aspects of IP Availability Manager are given in the IP Manager documentation.
