Configuring VNMC Profiles

Contents

Configuring VNMC Profiles

This section includes the following topics:

Profiles

VNMC profiles are configurable.

VNMC provides default profiles. Default profiles are system generated and can be modified, but they cannot be deleted. You can add new policies to a profile, including DNS and NTP policies, or assign existing policies to the a profile.

The VNMC profile includes the DNS domain name that specified at boot configuration. That domain is displayed in the VNMC instance. New DNS domains cannot be created. However, the domain name description can be modified.

VNMC does not support the creation of additional VNMC profiles.

Policies in VNMC Profiles

You can create multiple policies and assign them to the VNMC profile. Policies for the VNMC profile are created and deleted on the VNMC Profile tab. Policies can be assigned to the VNMC profile. VNMC profile uses name resolution to resolve policy assignments. For details, see Name Resolution in a Multi-Tenant Environment.

The following policies created under root only, in the Device Policies area, will be visible in the VNMC profile:
  • Core file policy
  • Fault policy
  • Logging policy
  • Syslog policy
Policies created under root are visible to both the VNMC profile and the Device profile.

DNS server, NTP server and domain names can be assigned as inline policies. A time zone setting can also be assigned to the profile.

When the system boots up, the following policies already have existing default policies:
  • Fault policy
  • Logging policy
  • Syslog policy
The default policies cannot be deleted but may be modified.

Configuring Policies

Configuring a Core File Policy

Adding a Core File Policy to the VNMC Profile

Procedure
    Step 1   Choose Administration > VNMC Profile > root > VNMC Policies > Core File.
    Step 2   In the General tab, click Add Core File Policy.
    Step 3   In the Add Core File Policy dialog box, complete the following fields, then click OK:
    Field Description

    Name

    Core file policy name, containing 1 to 32 characters. You can use alphanumeric characters, hyphen (-), underscore (_), and period (.). You cannot change the name after the policy has been saved.

    Description

    Brief policy description, containing 1 to 256 characters. You can use alphanumeric characters, hyphen (-), underscore (_), and period (.).

    Admin State

    Indicate whether the administrative state of the policy is to be enabled or disabled.

    Hostname

    Hostname or IP address to use for this policy. If you use a hostname rather than an IP address, you must configure a DNS server in VNMC.

    Port

    Port number for sending the core dump file.

    Protocol

    Protocol for exporting the core dump file (read-only).

    Path

    Path to use when storing the core dump file on a remote system. The default path is /tftpboot; for example, /tftpboot/test, where test is the subfolder.


    Editing a Core File Policy for a VNMC Profile

    Procedure
      Step 1   Choose Administration > VNMC Profile > root > VNMC Policies > Core File.
      Step 2   In the General tab, click the core file policy you want to edit, then click Edit.
      Step 3   In the Edit dialog box, modify the following fields as appropriate, then click OK:
      Field Description

      Name

      Name of the core file policy (read-only).

      Description

      Brief policy description.

      Admin State

      Administrative status of the policy: enabled or disabled.

      Hostname

      Hostname or IP address.

      Note    If you use a hostname, you must configure a DNS server.

      Port

      Port number to use when exporting the core dump file.

      Protocol

      Protocol used to export the core dump file (read-only).

      Path

      Path to use when storing the core dump file on the remote system.

      The default path is /tftpboot. To specify a subfolder under tftpboot, use the format /tftpboot/folder where folder is the subfolder.


      Deleting a Core File Policy from the VNMC Profile

      Procedure
        Step 1   Choose Administration > VNMC Profile > root > VNMC Policies > Core File.
        Step 2   In the General tab, click the core file policy you want to delete, then click Delete.
        Step 3   When prompted, confirm the deletion.

        Configuring a Fault Policy

        Adding a Fault Policy to the VNMC Profile

        Procedure
          Step 1   Choose Administration > VNMC Profile > root > VNMC Policies > Fault.
          Step 2   In the General tab, click Add Fault Policy.

          Fault policy name.

          This name can contain 1 to 32 identifier characters. You can use alphanumeric characters including hyphen, underscore, dot, and colon. You cannot change this name after it is created.

          Description

          Brief policy description.

          Flapping Interval

          Length of time (in hours, minutes, and seconds) that must elapse before the system allows a fault to change its state.

          Flapping occurs when a fault is raised and cleared several times in rapid succession. To prevent this, the system does not allow a fault to change its state until this amount of time has elapsed since the last state change.

          If the condition reoccurs during the flapping interval, the fault returns to the active state. If the condition does not reoccur during the flapping interval, the fault is cleared. What happens at that point depends on the setting in the Clear Faults Retention Action field.

          The default flapping interval is ten seconds.

          Clear Faults Retention Action

          Action to be taken when faults are cleared:
          • retain—Retain the cleared faults.
          • delete—Delete fault messages as soon as they are marked as cleared.

          Clear Faults Retention Interval

          How long the system is to retain cleared fault messages:
          • Forever—The system retains all cleared fault messages regardless of their age.
          • Other—The system retains cleared fault message for a specified the length of time. In the spinbox that is displayed when you select this option, enter the length of time (in days, hours, minutes, and seconds) that the system is to retain cleared fault messages.

          Editing a Fault Policy for a VNMC Profile


          Note


          When the system boots up, a default policy already exists. You can modify the default policy, but you cannot delete it.


          Procedure
            Step 1   Choose Administration > VNMC Profile > root > VNMC Policies > Fault.
            Step 2   In the General tab, select the fault policy you want to edit, then click Edit.
            Step 3   In the Edit Fault Policy dialog box, modify the fields as needed by using the information in the following table, then click OK.

            The default flapping interval is ten seconds.

            Clear Faults Retention Action

            Available fault retention actions:
            • retain—The system retains fault messages.
            • delete—The system deletes fault messages when they are marked as cleared.

                                  Edits the DNS domain selected in the DNS Domains table. The default DNS domain cannot be deleted.

                                  Caution    Changing the DNS domain will cause a loss of connectivity that results in an error message, your session closing, and then the display of a new VNMC certificate. This situation occurs when the VNMC hostname, VNMC domain name, or both have changed. The VM Manager Extension file must be exported again and installed on vCenter. To continue, accept the VNMC certificate and log into VNMC again.

                                          Configuring a DNS Domain

                                          Editing a DNS Domain


                                          Caution


                                          Changing the DNS domain will cause a loss of connectivity that results in an error message, your session closing, and then the display of a new VNMC certificate. This situation occurs when the VNMC hostname. VNMC domain name, or both have changed. The VM Manager Extension file must be exported again and installed on vCenter. To continue, accept the VNMC certificate and log into VNMC again.


                                          Procedure
                                            Step 1   Choose Administration > VNMC Profile > root > VNMC Profile > default.
