As described in the previous section, you can change what devices are included in the VoIP topology collection set by changing, adding, or deleting device-matching filters in the voip-topo-oid.conf file.

To customize VoIP-related device-matching filters:

  1. Go to the BASEDIR/smarts/bin directory in the IP Availability Manager installation area and issue the following command to open the voip-topo-oid.conf file:

                   sm_edit conf/discovery/voip-topo-oid.conf
  2. Consult “Device-matching filters for the VoIP topology collection set” on page 48 and make your changes to the file.

    Here is an example of a customized device-matching filter:

    VOIP-SYS-OID-IP-Pattern-.* 10.10.*
  3. Save and close the file. The modified version of the voip-topo-oid.conf file is saved to the BASEDIR/smarts/local/conf/discovery directory.

  4. If IP Availability Manager was running before you edited the voip-topo-oid.conf file, restart IP Availability Manager.
