By default, automatic topology synchronization with the underlying IP Availability Manager is enabled, meaning that VoIP Availability Manager automatically imports topology from IP Availability Manager whenever IP Availability Manager completes a discovery cycle.
In deployments where IP Availability Manager discovery takes place often, you can control when VoIP Availability Manager discovery takes place (for example, during off-peak hours). To do so, you can edit the voip.conf file to disable the automatic topology synchronization with IP Availability Manager and then use a scheduling mechanism like UNIX chrontab to invoke discovery in VoIP Availability Manager.
In the voip.conf file, to disable this behavior, the line to be edited is:
# AutoDiscover = FALSE
To disable automatic topology synchronization with IP Availability Manager:
Go to the BASEDIR/smarts/bin directory in the VoIP Availability Manager installation area and issue the following command to open the voip.conf file:
Find the following line and then uncomment the line (shown uncommented):
AutoDiscover = FALSE
Save and close the file. The modified version of the voip.conf file is saved to the BASEDIR/smarts/local/conf/voip directory.
If VoIP Availability Manager was running before you edited the voip.conf file, restart VoIP Availability Manager.
