Managing domains

From the main page of a domain you can perform a set of common maintenance tasks, such as editing its properties or deactivating it.

Editing a domain

  1. Access the Workspace tab of the BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization console.
  2. From the navigation tree, select the domain that you want to edit.
  3. Click Edit.
  4. Modify the following information:
    • Name: An appropriate name to identify the domain.
    • (Optional) Description: Any additional information that you want to add for this domain.
    • Domain type: Select an appropriate domain type from the list provided. (Default: Generic)
  5. Click Save.

When you deactivate a domain, the domain and all its contained systems and business drivers are assigned the UNASSIGNED status and moved under All systems and business drivers > Unassigned in the Workspace navigation tree. When you deactivate a domain, the association with its contained entities and works is not lost.

Deactivating a domain

  1. Access the Workspace tab of the BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization console.
  2. From the navigation tree, select the domain that you want to deactivate.
  3. Click Delete.
  4. On the Confirm the operation dialog box, select one of the following options to specify next to the Deactivation date:
    • Select Today to set the date to today.
    • Select Date and use the date-picker to set a date and time in the past.
  5. Click Confirm.

To set a domain as the root node

In the Workspace navigation panel, expanding the All Domains node shows the complete list of available domains, based on your current authorization permissions. When the list of domains is very long and navigating through domains becomes troublesome, it is possible to limit the scope for the current session by setting a new root node.

To set the root node

  1. Right-click the desired domain in the navigation tree.
  2. Select Set as root node.

Set as root node option

To reset the root node

To reset the navigation tree to its default and reacquire complete visibility over the list of domains, follow these steps:

  1. Right-click the root domain.
  2. Select Restore original root node.

Where to go from here

After deactivating a domain, you might want to reactivate the domain, including all its contained entities, analyses, and so on.
