By default, IP Availability Manager is not enabled to perform protocol light discovery. To enable this feature, set the DisableProtocolDiscovery parameter in IP Availability Manager’s tpmgr-param.conf file to FALSE.

To enable protocol light discovery:

  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 FALSE:

                   DisableProtocolDiscovery FALSE
  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. If IP Availability Manager was running before you edited the tpmgr-param.conf file, type the following command from BASEDIR/smarts/bin to make your change take effect:

                   sm_tpmgr -s <
                      IP Availability Manager
                    instance name>     --load-conf=tpmgr-param.conf
