When you use the sm_settings.pl script, you can also modify the script output to include new polling groups, for example, before importing the content into the Configuration Manager.
If you want add another polling group, use sm_edit from the BASEDIR/smarts/bin directory to open the exported output file (for example, type:
sm_edit <BASEDIR>/IP/smarts/local/logs/pt_groups). Add the new group definition under the polling category ICIM_UnitaryComputerSystem Polling Groups line. Below this line, you see definitions for all polling groups applicable to Unitary Computer systems (routers, switches, etc). Add the new definition immediately after the category line or between other definitions, as long as it is above the next category line.
- To create a new group definition, you can copy an existing group in the file and modify it.
- Alternatively, you can run the sm_settings.pl script against an IP Manager that is not under Configuration Manager control and that contains the desired group definition. Then, copy and paste the group definition into the file.
In addition, after you add the group definition, type the IP Manager or multiple IP Managers for the group. The general syntax is:
config <Group Name>: DM1|DM2
Then, save the file and import it into the Configuration Manager.
If a domain name specified in a group definition is not configured as a target IP Manager for the Configuration Manager, the IP Manager will be added as part of the import.
The settings for the newly-added Domain Managers need to be verified and then pushed manually.
The output file contains configuration of all polling and threshold groups and settings. Each group definition starts with
config <group name> line. Group definitions are separated from each other by blank lines. They are also organized by category. When you add a new group, make sure that the new group definition is added under the correct category.
