For some management systems, conditions are not tred for unmanaged elements. Eliminating the conditions for some elements reduces the bandwidth and processing time required. You can identify elements as managed using theright-click option, which displays regularly updated condition information.
The managing and unmanaging of elements applies to the following enterprise management systems:
Computer Associates’ Unicenter (any version) running on a supported platform
Hewlett Pard OpenView Network Node Manager (version 6.0) running on supported platforms
Tivoli NetView (versions 5.0) running only on UNIX integrations (the AIX and Solaris platforms)
Using this option requires the Manage permission.
To manage or unmanage an element:
To start managing an element:
Right-click the element, select, and then select .
The element’s condition changes from UNMANAGED to an updated condition.
To stop managing an element:
Right-click an element, select, and then select .
The unmanaged element and its children display, but Operations Center does not update their conditions. Their conditions change to UNMANAGED.
