For the Global Manager to import topology and events from the underlying components in a Network Protocol Manager deployment, you must configure the Global Manager with the proper data exchange adapter (DXA) files. The Global Manager integrates and correlates the imported topology and events, and relates the data to services and customers.

You use the Global Console to configure the DXA files. The VMware Smart Assurance Service Assurance Manager Configuration Guide provides detailed instructions on using the Global Console to complete Global Manager configurations.


The Global Manager and Global Console are part of the VMware Smart Assurance Service Assurance Manager.
