    Technical Tip: How to create a SpectroWatch on a the Virtual Host Manager model in Spectrum?

     

    CA Spectrum Technical Tip by Joe Ackley, Principal Support Engineer

     

    Description: Users are unable to create a SpectroWatch on the Virtual Host Manager model in Spectrum because out of the box, there is no SpectroWatches subview in the Information tab of the Virtual Host Manager.

     

    Solution: The view-vhmmanager-config.xml file can be modified to add the subview needed to create a SpectroWatch on the Virtual Host Manager model by doing the following:

     

    1. Copy the $SPECROOT/tomcat/webapps/spectrum/WEB-INF/vhm/config/view-vhmmanager-config.xml file to the $SPECROOT/custom/vhm/config directory. If the $SPECROOT/custom/vhm/config directory does not exist, create it.

     

    2. Edit the $SPECROOT/custom/vhm/config/view-vhmmanager-config.xml file

     

    3. Add the following between the </subview-group> and </subviews> tags so it looks like the following:

     

    <subviews>
    <subview-group>
    <title>com.aprisma.spectrum.app.vhm.common.Configuration</title>
    <subviews>
    <subview-group idref="view-vhmmanager-vmware-config"/>
    <subview-group idref="view-vhmmanager-solariszones-config"/>
    <subview-group idref="view-vhmmanager-hyperv-config"/>
    <subview-group idref="view-vhmmanager-ibmlpar-config"/>
    <subview-group idref="view-vhmmanager-huawei-config"/>
    </subviews>
    </subview-group>

    <dynamic-subview idref="spectrowatch-subview-config"/>

    </subviews>

     

    4. Save the file
