Adding Client Configurations

Using the System Management Hub (SMH), you can add client configurations for a client machine. Once added, the configuration can be maintained in SMH. Adding a client configuration will create a new client configuration file. For more information, read About Client Configurations.

We do not recommend that you maintain client configuration files using a text editor. Instead, we recommend that you use SMH to perform all maintenance to Entire Net-Work configuration files.

Start of instruction setTo add a client configuration definition to SMH:

Make sure you have accessed the System Management Hub.

  1. Select and expand Entire Net-Work Client from the list in tree-view to access the Entire Net-Work Client administration area.

  2. Select and expand Clients from the Entire Net-Work Client sublist.

    A list of machine names appears. The machines listed are computers on which clients managed by this installation of the System Management Hub are defined.

  3. Right-click on the client machine you want in the list and select Add Client Configuration from the resulting drop-down menu.

    The Add Net-Work Client Configuration panel displays in detail-view.


  4. Enter the name of the client configuration in Enter Entire Net-Work Client Configuration Name field on the Add Net-Work Client Configuration panel. The maximum number of characters allowed for a client configuration name is 16.

  5. Optionally, enter the path where the client configuration should be stored and click OK. The directory listed in the path must exist before you try to specify it in the configuration. Once the configuration is created, you cannot change the path; if you want to change the path, you must delete and recreate the client configuration.

    The client configuration cannot be stored in shared directories; it can only be stored on the local machine. For more information about using an individual client configuration for multiple clients, read About Client Configurations.

    If no path is specified, the client configuration file is stored wherever Entire Net-Work Client is installed.

    The client is added to SMH and a new Entire Net-Work Client configuration file is created.
