Initializes the monitoring connector that is required to get alerts by calling GetMonitoringAlertsForTiers for all tiered Management Groups. The failures that occurred for the configured tiers are returned. Namespace: Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.ConnectorFramework
Assembly: Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.OperationsManager (in microsoft.enterprisemanagement.operationsmanager.dll)


Visual Basic
Dim instance As ConnectorFrameworkProxy
Dim connectorId As Guid
Dim failures As ConnectorTieredOperationFailure()

instance.InitializeForTiers(connectorId, failures)


Visual Basic
Public Sub InitializeForTiers ( _
		connectorId As Guid, _
		<OutAttribute> ByRef failures As ConnectorTieredOperationFailure() _
public void InitializeForTiers (
		Guid connectorId,
		out ConnectorTieredOperationFailure[] failures
void InitializeForTiers (
		Guid connectorId, 
		[OutAttribute] array<ConnectorTieredOperationFailure^>^% failures
public void InitializeForTiers (
		Guid connectorId, 
		/** @attribute OutAttribute() */ /** @ref */ ConnectorTieredOperationFailure[] failures



The globally unique identifier (GUID) for the monitoring connector to initialize.


The array of failures that may have occurred for various tiers.


The MonitoringConnector must be set up and initialized before any alerts can be retrieved. This method initializes the monitoring connector for subsequent calls with the currently stored bookmark.

Attempting to Initialize a monitoring connector that is already initialized results in an exception with the "The connector is already in the given state." warning. It is advisable to perform a check of the Initialized property to determine if the monitoring connector is already initialized before attempting to Initialize the monitoring connector.
