Web-based System Manager Administration Guide


Web-based System Manager provides a variety of ways of obtaining assistance and additional information.

Hover Help
Provides assistance for icons in the tool bar. Position the mouse pointer over a tool bar icon and wait for a couple of seconds. A text label displays, identifying the meaning of the icon.

Provides assistance on common tasks performed with the currently active plug-in. Tips are displayed between the menu and tool bars. Tips are provided in the form of simple text instructions or hypertext links to browser-based help. The user can hide or show the tips area according to preference by using the Show submenu in the View menu. (See Tips Area for additional information).

Context Help
Provides assistance on the use of dialog windows. Access context help by clicking the Help button in the lower-right corner of the dialog. A small context help window displays. When you click on individual controls in the dialog, assistance on the use of that control displays in the context help window. When context help is running, you can only access the controls in the dialog to view help. To use the controls, you must first close the context help window either by clicking the Close button on the context help window or clicking the Help button in the dialog that you sought help on.

Browser-based Help
Provides extensive information for tasks in the browser-based help system. To use the browser-based help system, you must first have a document server configured. After the help server has been identified to the managed host, you can access browser-based help by making a selection from the Help menu in the menu bar or by clicking on a link in a Tips area.

Filtering and Sorting Views

When a plug-in supports Large Icons, Small Icons, or Details view, you can make it easier to locate objects by filtering or sorting the view. Filtering reduces the number of objects displayed in the contents area. You can filter a view either by specifying the names of objects or by defining one or more rules for excluding objects from the view:

Both the Filter tab and the Advanced tab can be used together if the Hide check-box is checked on both tabs.
