Issue/Introduction

The necessity for this technical document comes up on the researches for a case where we did not get

any Alarms in the SOI Console from a SNMP Connector running in a Catalyst Container after policy extentions has been added for customization purposes.



Where do we have to store the main connector policy and extention policy files in a Catalyst Container environment ?

Environment

Catalyst Container 3.4.xall Connectors running in Catalyst Container servers

Resolution

Following is a description about where to store extension policies for Connectors running in a Catalyst Container.

 

The main policy for a connector must be stored in the following directory:

   …\CatalystConnector\registry\topology\physical\<server>_CatalystConnector\modules\policy

 

Extension policies must be stored in the following directory (the last two directory-levels might not exist and thus must be created manually):

   …\CatalystConnector\container\data\Core\Catalogpolicy\extensions

 

 

There are two sub-directories with the same names, but they should not be used, because the system does not look for policies in these directories.

It is unknown to me what these directories are used for.

   …\ CatalystConnector\connector_registry\topology\physical\<server>_CatalystConnector\modules\policy

   …\ CatalystConnector\container\resources\Core\Catalogpolicy\extensions
