Use the Veritas Operations Manager Enterprise Server console to create rules for assigning objects to instances of a business view.
Each rule defines the conditions for assigning one object type to one instance. Objects are assigned to the instances at the lowest level of the hierarchy (leaf instance). You create one rule per leaf instance for each type of object. You select from predefined attributes and operators when defining rule conditions.
To create a rule for assigning objects to a business view
In the Veritas Operations Manager Enterprise Server console, click Manage > Business Views > Assignments.
From the Business Views drop-down list, select the business view to which you want to assign objects.
In the Instances pane, select the instance to which you want to assign objects.
On the Manage Rules tab, under Rules for Instances, select the object type and click the Add Rule icon.
In the Add Rule dialog box, define the rule. Assign a name and description and specify the rule conditions.
Optionally click Test Rule to verify the rule syntax. The Test Rule Results dialog box displays a list of all objects to be assigned by the rule. After reviewing the results, click OK.
Click Save. The rule is added to the rules table for that object type.
If the Automatic assignment check box is selected for the business view, all rules for the business view are run automatically whenever objects are rolled up, except for any rules that are set as disabled. To disable or enable rules after saving, use the Disable rules or Enable rules icons above the table of rules.
