After you deploy the Performance Manager virtual appliance and access the GUI, you can customize the configuration of several options to meet the needs of your cluster environment.
Enabling periodic AutoSupport
You can choose to have specific, predefined messages sent automatically to technical support to ensure correct operation of your environment and to assist you in maintaining the integrity of your environment.
Sending an on-demand AutoSupport message
You can choose to have Performance Manager send an on-demand message to technical support for assistance with troubleshooting issues. The AutoSupport message sent by Performance Manager contains diagnostic system information and detailed data about the Performance Manager server.
Configuring NTP settings
You can use the NTP Server dialog box to specify the Network Time Protocol (NTP) server you want to use with Performance Manager. The Performance Manager server synchronizes its time with the time on the NTP server.
Editing network settings
You might want to edit network settings if, for example, an IP address of a virtual machine (VM) changes, or if you switch from a DHCP to a static IP configuration.
