You can use the vdmadmin command with the -N option to control the domains that View Manager makes available to end users.


vdmadmin -N [-b authentication_arguments] -domains {-exclude | -include | -search} -domain domain -add [-s connsvr]

vdmadmin -N [-b authentication_arguments] -domains -list [-w | -n] [-xml]

vdmadmin -N [-b authentication_arguments] -domains -list -active [-w | -n] [-xml]

vdmadmin -N [-b authentication_arguments] -domains {-exclude | -include | -search} -domain domain -remove [-s connsvr]

vdmadmin -N [-b authentication_arguments] -domains {-exclude | -include | -search} -removeall [-s connsvr]

Specify one of the -exclude, -include, or -search options to apply an operation to the exclusion list, inclusion list, or search exclusion list respectively.

If you add a domain to a search exclusion list, the domain is excluded from an automated domain search.

If you add a domain to an inclusion list, the domain is included in the results of the search.

If you add a domain to an exclusion list, the domain is excluded from the results of the search.
