Targeting a supermetric on the Datacenter level

I have a supermetric that I want to apply to all the VMs in a specific datacenter. I am still getting a handle on policies in Vrops 6.2. What is the policy that will allow me to apply that on the datacenter level?

it's not possible to apply policy to the DC and all descendant objects directly.

I would suggest:

1. Create Custom Group, use Object Type -- Virtual Machine, Filter: Relatinoship -- Descendant -- is -- <Name of your DC>. Check preview that it will returns all of your VM

2. Create a new policy as a child of your def policy, go to section 5 Selected Metric and property, click on Attribute, uncheck metric and property so only SM will be checked. Find you SM, select it and click action -- enable.

3. Go to Section 8 in the policy creation wizard and assign the policy to the CG from the step 1

4. Wait 2-3 collection cycles to check if you SM is calculated

Hope this helps

Regards, Oleg
