In addition to performing the configuration and administration tasks common to all IP Availability Managers, you perform the following additional tasks to set up IP Availability Manager in a VoIP Availability Manager deployment:

  • Customize VoIP-related device-matching filters (optional).

  • Exclude Avaya virtual IP addresses and Nortel node IP addresses from the discovered topology (mandatory if managed environment contains Avaya or Nortel devices).

  • Configure SNMP trap exploder to distribute network traps to VoIP Availability Manager (mandatory).

    Chapter 4, Configuring IP Availability Manager, and Chapter 6, Configuring the SNMP Trap Integration, provide the procedures for performing these tasks. Procedures for configuring all aspects of IP Availability Manager are provided in the VMware Smart Assurance IP Management Suite Configuration Guide.
