You do not need to create a notification list in the Adapter Platform Server for the Global Manager to use. By default, it connects to the Adapter Platform Server’s Default notification list. However, if you want to use a custom notification list, you can create it through the Global Manager Administration Console, or you can create it through the use of the nlconfig-sample.xml file and import it with the sm_config command. This allows you to send a subset of notifications from the Adapter Platform Server to the Global Manager. Then you need to modify the local copy of the dxa-oi.conf on the Global Manager and change the following line:

sub    Default/n
sub     <notification_list>/n
