Inventory > Local Manager Summary page

The Control Center provides a graphical interface for the configuration of managed Local Managers. Use the configuration menus on the left side of the Summary page to view and edit settings. The configuration menus cover most but not all of the features found on the LM command line.

Uplogix Control Center - Local Manager Summary - Configuration

Click on the right arrow on the configuration menu to expand it.

Use only printing characters when completing text fields. Spaces are considered printing characters.

To change the Local Manager's configuration, select an option from the menu on the left. Enter the updated values and click Save to force the changes onto the Local Manager.

Some options may be unavailable, depending on your privileges. The IPT option is available only if the Local Manager has a Service Level Verification (SLV) license.
