Initially, when you log in to start a session, you specify the Manager to which you want to attach. Ordinarily, you do not have to attach again during your session.

If the machine running Service Assurance becomes unavailable, the Global Console polls the broker every 30 seconds and reattaches when the Manager is operational. “Attaching to a Manager” on page 52 includes instructions on manually attaching or reattaching to an VMware Smart Assurance Manager.


If an VMware Smart Assurance Manager disconnects, a Domain Disconnected message appears informing you that the manager disconnected and that the console will reconnect when the domain becomes available.
