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>
4. Save the file
5. Log out and then log back into OneClick
