The Network Configuration Manager system must be discovered by Smarts Manager for the event notifications to function properly. The adapter now checks this during configuration, and will not pass the self-tests if the Network Configuration Manager server cannot be found.

The Smarts Manager provides two options for initiating a manual discovery. Both options are initiated through the Domain Manager Administration Console.

  • Option 1: Import a seed file

  • Option 2: Using the Add Agent command


    VMware Smart Assurance IP Manager Concepts Guide and VMware Smart Assurance IP Manager User Guide provides more information for preparing and initiating discoveries.

    Network Configuration Manager needs to be discovered in Non-SNMP mode to get it into the system. Once Network Configuration Manager is discovered into Smarts Manager, note the name given by Smarts Manager to the Network Configuration Manager server. This is needed in the next step, configuring the adapter.
