To enable the IP Manager to create a physical connection for a shared MAC address:

  1. Go to the BASEDIR/smarts/bin directory in the IP Manager installation area and type the following command to open the tpmgr-param.conf file:

                   sm_edit conf/discovery/tpmgr-param.conf
  2. Set the following parameter to the sysObjectID of the target device and to the ifType values of the target virtual interfaces:

    IfVirtualTypePattern-<sysObjectID> <interface type pattern>
    ifVirtualTypePattern-. 135|136
  3. Save and close the file.

    The modified version of the tpmgr-param.conf file is saved to the BASEDIR/smarts/local/conf/discovery directory.

  4. Type the following command from BASEDIR/smarts/bin to implement your changes:

                   sm_tpmgr -s <
                      IP Manager
                    instance name
  5. Press Enter.
