    Figure 1. Domain Manager Administration Console—example

    The Domain Manager Administration Console is the primary tool for configuring discovery, initiating discovery, and managing topology for a Domain Manager such as VoIP Availability Manager.

    Since VoIP Availability Manager imports its topology and topology updates from IP Availability Manager, the manual discovery and autodiscovery features are not available to VoIP Availability Manager. All other administration capabilities normally available through the Domain Manager Administration Console are available to administrators and operators of VoIP Availability Manager.

    The VMware Smart Assurance Service Assurance Manager Operator Guide provides detailed descriptions of the administration capabilities available through the Domain Manager Administration Console.
