Navigating the administration interface

The Administration page provides access to many commonly required setup operations. To access the Administration page, click Administration on the primary navigation bar. View-only tabs are also provided which enable you to view the current configuration of appliance identification, support information, software, hardware, network interfaces and routing.

The Administration page is divided into the following sections:

  • Discovery— provides links to the configuration and management pages for Discovery. The available links are:
    • Platforms: configure the commands used for each target OS. This is described in Managing the discovery platform scripts.
    • SNMP Devices: view the network devices which can be discovered by BMC Atrium Discovery. This is described in Viewing an SNMP managed device.
    • Storage Devices: view the WBEM queries used to perform direct discovery of storage devices. See Storage device direct discovery.
    • Sensitive Data Filters: mask any sensitive data which might otherwise be seen in the command output. See Masking sensitive data.
    • Discovery Configuration: configure the Discovery process. This is described in Configuring discovery.
    • Discovery Consolidation: configure consolidation of discovery data between appliances. This is described in Consolidation.
    • Ciscoworks Import: import switch data from CiscoWorks. This is described in Importing network device data.
    • Vault Manangement: manage the Credential Vault. This is described in Managing the credential vault.
    • Device Capture: capture an SNMP device using BMC Atrium Discovery to dump the MIB of an SNMP agent, which is then used to request that support be included in BMC Atrium Discovery for that SNMP device. This is described in Capturing SNMP devices.
  • Security — provides links for the pages used to configure the security of the appliance and users. For more information, see Managing users and security.
    • Users: add, remove and modify users. This is described in Managing system users.
    • Groups: add, remove and modify groups. This is described in Managing groups.
    • Security Policy: configure the appliance security options. These are described in Managing security policies.
    • HTTPS: configure the HTTPS settings for the appliance. This is described in Configuring HTTPS settings.
    • Appliance Certificates: view and manage the certificates that the appliance uses for authentication.
    • LDAP: view information about integrating BMC Atrium Discovery with LDAP. This is described in Managing LDAP.
    • Single Sign On: Integrate BMC Atrium Discovery with BMC Atrium Single Sign-On (SSO) to simplify the user authentication. BMC Atrium Discovery supports other methods of web authentication using plugins to authenticate user logins, though BMC Atrium SSO is the preferred method.
    • Active Sessions: view all users who are currently logged in. This is described in Viewing active sessions.
    • Audit: configure the appliance audit feature. This is described in Auditing the appliance.
  • Appliance— provides links for the configuration pages for the appliance. The pages related to the initial set up of the appliance are described later in this section. These are:
  • Model— provides links to the pages used to configure and maintain the model, and import and export data.
