You can use the Operations Manager Connector Framework (OMCF) Web service to create a connector that allows Operations Manager to communicate with an external system.

Note
If the external system runs on a Windows-based computer, using the class libraries is the preferred method for creating the connector. For more information, see How to Create or Remove a Connector by Using the Operations Manager Class Libraries.

Example

The following example demonstrates how to create and remove a connector using the OMCF Web service. Before creating a connector, you can create an OMCF Web service proxy. For more information, see How to Create an OMCF Web Service Proxy.

			Dim mg As ManagementGroup = New ManagementGroup("localhost")

			Dim connectorId As Guid = Guid.NewGuid()

			' Create a new connector.
			Dim myConnectorInfo As ConnectorInfo = New ConnectorInfo()
			myConnectorInfo.Name = "myConnector"
			myConnectorInfo.DisplayName = "My Connector"
			myConnectorInfo.Description = "This connector was created using the OMCF Web service."

			' Define the Web service URI endpoint address for the Web service
			' that is used to create the connector.
			Dim uriEndpointAddress As String = "EnterURIEndpointAddressHere"
			Dim OMCFProxy As ConnectorFrameworkProxy = _
				New ConnectorFrameworkProxy(uriEndpointAddress)

			OMCFProxy.SetupWithConnectorId(myConnectorInfo, connectorId)
			OMCFProxy.Initialize(connectorId)

			Console.WriteLine("Created " & myConnectorInfo.Name & _
				" with ID: " & connectorId.ToString())

			' Remove the connector.
			Console.WriteLine("Removing connector with Id: " & connectorId.ToString())
			OMCFProxy.Uninitialize(connectorId)
			OMCFProxy.Cleanup(connectorId)
			Console.WriteLine("Connector removed.")

		End Function
