2.5 Orchestration Console Install Pattern

Description: The Cloud Manager Orchestration Server Console is a java-based thick client that administers the functionality of the Orchestration Server from any SLES 11 server or a Windows 7 desktop on the same network with the Orchestration Server. Before you can perform any Orchestration Server management functions, such as creating user accounts and managing activities of the server, you need to install the Orchestration Console. The console is a thick desktop client designed for administrative tasks including infrastructure management (for example, managing computing resources) and monitoring. You can install the console on the server itself or on another network computer.

This pattern includes both a GUI console and two command line interface tools. These clients let you troubleshoot, initiate, change, or shut down server functions for the Orchestration Server and its computing resources. For information about the client tools, see the NetIQ Cloud Manager 2.1.5 Orchestration Console Reference and the NetIQ Cloud Manager 2.1.5 Orchestration Server Command Line Reference.
