How to configure Hosts ICMPONLY in user-defined-connections

How to configure two hosts that are in different partitions on one partition?

The hosts are as ICMPONLY and its interface description is blank. Already tried several different connections and did not work.

Re: How to configure Hosts ICMPONLY in user-defined-connections

handerrson,

If you haven't already, please try creating a manual user-user-defined-connection.

To do this you will need to modify the Smarts user-defined-connections.conf

configuration file found here:

<BASEDIR>/IP/smarts/bin/sm_edit conf/discovery/user-defined-connections.conf

For the connection to be built by Smarts IP, a post process must run. To start the post processing, rediscover any device that is in the Smarts IP topology.

nbruce,

Already tried to create connections in user-defined-connections.conf but without success.

I for various other hosts and works for that not, the difference is that the host NOBREAK_SIG is discovered as ICMPONLY without the attribute Portkey then tried to create a fake door and still was not done as follows:

sbcdf816.bc | 172.19.43.102/3018 | NOBREAK_SIG | 172.17.229.105/1 |

Hi handerrson,

A partition is defined as a group of managed computer systems in the InCharge topology that are interconnected to each other, that is, a managed computer system can reach any other managed computer system in the same partition by traversing layer 2 and/or layer 3 connectivity relationships.

Devices cannot be grouped together manually in the same partition in the Smarts AM topology. The Smarts Discovery operation controls which devices belong to a particular Partition based on discovered logical and physical connections in the Smarts topology.

Smarts uses the following logic to create partitions:

If a system has no neighboring systems, then it is not put into any partitions. To create a partition, two systems must be neighbors of each other. To calculate a partition, Smarts uses BFS (Breadth First Search) traversal of graph, starting with #sysObj#. For example, if System A appears as the neighbor of System B, and System B appears as the neighbor of System A then Smarts will create the partition with these two systems as members.  A system cannot be in more than one Partition.


For more information on partitions in Smarts IP, see the "Partition" section in the EMC Smarts Availability Manager User's guide as well as the following solutions:

https://support.emc.com/kb/8190 ("What is a Smarts partition")

https://support.emc.com/kb/41983 ("Smarts AM: Receive PARTITION DOWN root cause alarm")

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.


Thanks.

Kind Regards,

Paul O'Rourke
