Browsing to Resources

List Resources by Inventory Type

The first time you display the Resources > Browse page during a session, it lists the platforms in inventory, and the type, description, and current availability for each. See the screenshot below for an example. To list resources of another inventory type, click the link for that type — Servers, Services, Compatible Groups/Clusters, Mixed Groups, or Applications — above the resource list.

List Resources by Resource Type

After you select an inventory type to list, a resource type selector list appears. The pulldown label depends on the currently selected inventory type, for example, All Platform Types, All Server Types, and so on. For example, in when screenshot below, the Platforms inventory type is selected, so a Platform Types pulldown is present. Select a platform type from the list to list only resources of that type.

If the currently selected inventory level is Servers or Services, a pulldown list of resource types of the selected inventory type is present. Select a resource type from the list to list only resources of that type.

If the currently selected inventory level is Compatible Groups/Clusters, a pulldown list labelled "Group Type" will appear. The list will contain resource types. If there is at least one compatible group of a resource type, that type will appear in the pulldown. Select a resource type from the list to list only groups that contain that type.

If the currently selected inventory level is Mixed Groups, a pulldown list labelled "Group Type" will appear. (See the pulldown to the right of the *Platform Types" list in the screenshot in List Resources by Resource Type). The entries in the list depend on the mixed groups configured in your environment. Select a group type from the list to list only groups of that composition. Depending on your deployment, the list may include:

  • Mixed Group - Platforms, Servers and Services

  • Mixed Group - Groups

  • Mixed Group - Applications

Filter Platforms, Servers, and Services by Group

When the currently selected inventory level is Platforms, Servers or Services, a pulldown list of groups appears. It lists both compatible and mixed groups to which you have access. To list the platforms, servers, or services that are members of a particular group, select the group from the All Groups pulldown.
