An option used to synchronize date/time stamps between server clocks. If True, all date/time stamps are adjusted to reflect the time differences between two Operations Center servers. If False, all date/time stamps are displayed as received from the remote server and no adjustments are made for time differences between two servers. The default is True.


If True, the Administration branch on a remote server is accessible on the connected machine. If False, the Administration branch is not accessible.

For details on the administration tasks that can be performed remotely, see the Operations Center 5.6 Server Configuration Guide.

The URL used to reach the Operations Center server, with /Reference appended.

For unsecured TCP/IP connection on UNIX, the default port is 8080. Assume the Operations Center server is on a host named global. The value for ServerURL is http://global:8080/Reference.

To establish a secure connection on UNIX using SSL, assuming the server accepts HTTPS connections on the default port 8443, the value for ServerURL is https://global:8443/Reference.

For Windows, use 80/443 instead of 8080/8443.

For more information on using unsecure and secure client/server communication, see the Operations Center 5.6 Security Management Guide and the Operations Center 5.6 Server Configuration Guide.
