Customizing the System Table View appearance.

Customizing the System Table View appearance.

I am running HP Systems Insight Manager 5.1 on a Windows 2003 Server.
2 Questions:

1.) Is it possible to add/customize the "Displayed Columns" on the Table View/Appearance page, other than the choices that are there by default?

2.) Is there a way to add/customize fields on the "Edit System Properties" page, specifically the "System Subtype" selections/options.?

Thanks.

Thanks for the heads up about the points. I will try to be more aware of this from now on.

Not that I'm aware of.

What are you trying to achieve? There may be an alternative.
If you want a new device type for a currently unknown device you can add these.

Re: Customizing the System Table View appearance.

I would like to be able to add information/fileds similar to the following:
Staff Responsible
Validation (whether or not a server has been deemed validated or non-validated)
Date Server was brought online
ETC.

So that if we need to run a report against these things, we can do so.
Thanks

Re: Customizing the System Table View appearance.

Sven,
I haven't been able to achieve that via the table view but some of these items can be made viewable via System Properties and SNMP settings.
Specifically, I've added Contact Information (System contact and System location) via the Edit System Properties option (can also be accomplished via SNMP configuration>SNMP Agent Configuration) on the System Management Homepage of said server. Also, the SNMP Configuration>Management Agents screen on the System Management Homepage will allow you to enter a "Server Role".

All of the above added information can be referenced via the system Identification drill downs and/or via a custom report.
See attached.

peace,
