Initializes the monitoring connector that is required to get alerts by calling GetMonitoringAlertsForTiers, and sets the BookMark time to a specified date and time, 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 MonitoringConnector
Dim utcBookmarkTime As DateTime
Dim failures As IList(Of ConnectorTieredOperationFailure)

instance.InitializeForTiers(utcBookmarkTime, failures)


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



The date and time value to which the bookmark for this monitoring connector is initially set.


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 InitializeForTiers 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 InitializeForTiers the monitoring connector.
