Setting the instance identification

You can view or set details of the instance identity, support information (displayed in the Help drop-down on each BMC Helix Discovery page), and read-only information about the instance software version and revision.

To view or edit the instance identification:

  1. From the main menu, click the Administration icon 
    The Administration page opens.
  2. In the Instance section, select Configuration.
    The Identification page displays details of the instance identity, support information, and software.

  3. Edit the fields that you want to change.

In the Task List pane, users new to the product are guided to perform tasks in a specific sequence. After you complete these tasks, the Task List pane automatically disappears from the browser.
