The notifiers can subscribe to either an VMware Smart Assurance Service Assurance Manager (Global Manager) or to a Domain Manager.

To indicate which notifications (or event information) the adapter will process, you specify this in the Subscriptions section of the notifier’s configuration file. VMware Corporation recommends that you subscribe to the Global Manager.

By default, the notifiers subscribe to a Global Manager. To subscribe to a Domain Manager, you must uncomment the code in the Subscriptions section and comment out the code for the Global Manager (insert a # character at the beginning of the lines that are not needed).
