Group Management

Introduction

q-Status™ supports group discrimination of servers/domains. This is accomplished by assigning an attribute to the server by its host id. The user can then ask q-Status™ to only display those servers in the group, by selecting the group name from a pulldown. The default "ALL" will display all servers for the q-Status™ instance.

The pulldowns are embedded within many of the selection menus.

Selecting a new group will immediately re-display the selection with only those server that belong to the selected group.

Group capability pulldowns will not be available in q-Status™ unless a server has been assigned to a group.

Group Setup

New groups are created and assigned from the administrative menu by selecting the Group Management Option.

This displays a list of all the servers and their assigned groups.

Note: Information on groups is maintained in the SerialNumber file.

This one form allows the user to:

  • Add New Group Name
  • Remove Group Name
  • Add a server/domain to a group
  • Delete a server/domain from a group

New group names can be added or group names can be removed from all systems with that group assignment using the "Add/Remove Group Name(s)" button in the "Configure Server Groups" window. Selecting the option will display the "Add/Remove Group Name(s)" dialog window.

Delete a group name is accomphised for all server in that delete group when the "Add/Remove Group(s) buttom is clicked. When you create a new group name, you must immediately return to the "Configure Server Groups" page and assign at least one server to that new group or the new group name will not be lost.

Note: The total number of group names will grow as required and is not limited to thirteen names as in the example.
