VMware vRealize PING management pack

This post was originally published on this site

This might be an easy one, but its not obvious to me.


In 8.2 the VMware vRealize Ping adapter, I have started to set this up.


The Connect Information is as follows

Unique Name – for the instance

Address List – list of comma separated values, etc


Configuration File Name –

It seems that i am supposed to create an xml file in a specific format and store this somewhere.


It mentions to follow the .xml format listed under ADMINISTRATION > Metric Configuration > SolutionConfig and use the ping_adapter_config as the template


I have read the documentation and its not clear to me where this file should be stored once created?

Should this be put on the appliance itself? or can this be referenced from the metric configurations section?


Probally an easy one for someone that has done this before.
