9.2 Modifying HierarchyFiles

For adapters that leverage a HierarchyFile, an example is provided in the /OperationsCenter_install_path/database/examples directory. These examples are automatically updated and overwritten when a new version of Operations Center or a patch release is installed, so it is important to save a copy in the /OperationsCenter_install_path/database directory and make any changes there.

To modify an adapter HierarchyFile

  1. Copy the adapter’s example HierarchyFile from OperationsCenter_install_path/database/examples to the /OperationsCenter_install_path/database directory.

  2. Make the desired changes to the HierarchyFile.

  3. Update the Hierarchy File property setting in the Adapter Properties for each adapter that uses the HierarchyFile.
