Configuring the discovery profile

This topic describes how to configure the discovery profile.

You can configure the Linux® computer system sensor in the Discovery Management Console by setting the following attributes:
ignoreVMCPCommand=false
This property is used when the vmcp command fails, which might lead to over merges of multiple Linux systems.
The default value of this property is false. If the value is set to true, the vmcp command is ignored.
The true value can be used, for example, when you have Linux installed on LPAR. To change the value to true, you must create a new sensor configuration in the Discovery Profiles tab. In the Create Configuration window, change the value of the property from false to true, and select the Enable this configuration and disable selected configuration option.
Note: This property is ignored when the com.ibm.cdb.discover.zlinux.ignoreVMCPCommand.enabled property is set to true. For more information, see the description of this property in the Configuring the collation.properties file entries section of the Linux computer system sensor.
