Configuring AR System servers
Every BMC Remedy AR System server has a variety of configuration settings that control how the server works and how it interacts with users. Configuration settings are specific for each server.
Use the AR System Administration: Server Information form from the BMC Remedy AR System Administration Console to display information about the selected server and to set server options. You must be an administrator to make changes.
