VMP Enterprise Manager Configuration Options

From the VMP Enterprise Manager, you can set configuration options to control the behavior of the VMP Server.

These options are organized into categories, and some categories are divided into subcategories. To access these options, start the VMP Enterprise Manager and select Configuration > Configuration.

Options marked with an asterisk * are visible only when you click Advanced Options.

If you have installed a standalone version of the VMP Administrator, the VMP Enterprise Manager displays only a limited subset of these options. The options available in a standalone environment are marked with two asterisks **.

Note: If you are using VMP in a clustered environment, you must update these options on each cluster node on which the VMP Server is installed.
