The Global Console is a collection of many consoles, or console views, that together enable administrators to manage VMware Smart Assurance Domain Managers and Global Managers.
You will use the following three consoles to complete the configuration and administration tasks that are required to set up a Network Protocol Manager deployment:
Domain Manager Administration Console
Enables administrators to manage Domain Managers and to discover topology; for example, to add IP Availability Manager as a source to a Domain Manager.Note:
Using the Domain Manager Administration Console to add IP Availability Manager as a source to Network Protocol Manager is described in the VMware Smart Assurance Network Protocol Manager Discovery Guide Supplement.
Global Manager Administration Console
Enables administrators to configure the Global Manager; for example, to set up connections to underlying Domain Managers, to enable map types that are disabled by default, or to enable server tools that are disabled by default.
Polling and Thresholds Console
Enables administrators to control periodic polling, to set thresholds for polled data, and to deploy and customize special groups such as CLI device-access groups.
