Step 1: Specify the Origin of the Information

  1. From the Ad Hoc Query screen, specify the network protection category (managed product or directory) from which the report generates.
    • 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.

      After specifying this option, the user must then select the protection category from which the information originates. The user does this by selecting managed products/directories from the Product Directory.

    Note:

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

  2. Click Next.

    The Select Data View screen appears.
