Overview
This integration supports Virtualization sync. When the 
DX NetOps Spectrum
 and CA UIM integration is enabled, synchronization happens automatically at the scheduled time interval displayed in the OneClick view. Additions, deletions and modifications of VMWare entities in CA UIM are reflected in 
DX NetOps Spectrum
 after the Virtualization sync. You can schedule the Virtualization sync at regular intervals through the OneClick view.
 
Follow these steps:
 
  1. Open the 
    DX NetOps Spectrum
     OneClick console.
  2. Select 
    UIM Manager
     from the Navigation panel on any landscape.
    The 
    Contents
     pane for UIM Manager opens.
  3. Click the 
    Information
     tab and expand 
    Configuration.
     
  4. Expand 
    UIM Virtualization Sync Configuration.
    Information on Virtualization sync is displayed.
    The following image displays the option to schedule Virtualization sync:  UIM Virtual Sync Config_1022.png
  5. Click 
    set
     to schedule Virtualization sync.
    The Time interval window opens.
  6. Specify the time interval and click 
    OK.
    Default:
     300 minutes.
    Minimum:
     60 minutes.
    You can confirm whether the Virtualization sync is complete, based on 
    Sync Status
     value.
Delete Unreported Entities
The 
Delete Unreported Entities
 button, allows you to delete entities/models that are no longer reported as part of virtualization integration.
The entities/ models that were previously reported only as part of virtualization integration will be placed in the Unreported Entities/ Models container, if they are no longer reported. (These entities/ models were auto-deleted previously. You will now have to manually delete these entities using the Delete Unreported Entities button.)
  1. Click 
    Delete
    .
    A relevant confirmation dialog appears.
  2. Select 
    Yes
     to delete the entities/models from this container across landscapes.
    An appropriate confirmation message is displayed.
 
Reconciling CA UIM virtual entity data with existing 
DX NetOps Spectrum
 models
During virtualization synchronization, when a new CA UIM virtual entity is reported to 
DX NetOps Spectrum
 from CA UIM, 
DX NetOps Spectrum
 will perform a search to identify if this virtual entity was modeled during 
DX NetOps Spectrum
 discovery and modeling. If such an existing model is found, 
DX NetOps Spectrum
 will reconcile the CA UIM entity information with the existing model, instead of creating a new model.
This search is limited to the SpectroSERVER in which the parent VCenter UIM entity was destined to be modeled. In cases where an existing model is not found and reconciliation is not performed, 
DX NetOps Spectrum
 will model the virtual entity in the SpectroSERVER specified in the 
OneClick Admin Configuration
UIM Configuration
 page.  
DX NetOps Spectrum
 uses the IP Address reported by the entity to perform this search. If the IP Address is not reported, the search is performed using the reported MAC address.
If neither (IP or MAC Address) are reported, 
DX NetOps Spectrum
 will not be able to reconcile that entity even if the entity is discovered and modeled in 
DX NetOps Spectrum
.
