Product Directory

The Product Directory screen displays information about all the Management Communication Protocol (MCP) product servers registered to the Control Manager server. You can use this screen to search for specific managed product entities, view managed server status summaries, execute managed product tasks, configure managed product settings, or query managed product logs.

Tip:

You can also use the Log Query screen to query managed product logs.

For more information, see Working with Log Queries.

The Product Directory tree organizes managed products into the following default folders:

  • <Root>: Displays the name of the Control Manager server and contains all the following subfolders

  • Local Folder: Contains the New Entity folder and any custom folders you create

  • New Entity: Contains all managed products newly registered to the Control Manager server

  • Search Result: Contains all managed products that match the criteria for a basic or advanced search

Note:

Except for the New Entity folder, Control Manager lists all folders in ascending order, starting from special characters (!, #, $, %, (, ), *, +, -, comma, period, +, ?, @, [, ], ^, _, {, |, }, and ~), numbers (0 to 9), or alphabetic characters (a/A to z/Z).

The Product Directory screen uses icons to represent managed products and the connection status of managed products.
