Step 1: Specify the Origin of the Information

  1. From the Ad Hoc Query screen, select the origin for the information query:
    • Select Control Manager: Specifies that information originates from the Control Manager server to which the user is currently logged on.

      Specifying this option disables the Product Tree, because the information only comes from the Control Manager server to which the user is logged on.

    • Select Product Tree: Specifies that information originates from the managed products the Control Manager server manages. This can include managed products from child Control Manager servers.

      After specifying this option, the user must then select the managed products or directory from which the information originates.

    Note:

    Selecting the managed product or directory on this screen affects the available data views on the following screen. For example, by selecting OfficeScan in the product directory, only data views associated with OfficeScan display in the Available Data Views list.

  2. Click Next.

    The Step 2: Data View screen appears.
