To obtain containment information about an individual network object, you can use any of the following common methods to open a Containment dialog box for the object:

  • In a network map tree, right-click the object and then select Containment in the pop-up menu.

  • In a network map display, right-click the object and then select Containment in the pop-up menu.

  • In a Topology Browser Console, right-click the object and then select Containment in the pop-up menu.

  • In a Notification Log Console, double-click a notification for the object and click the Containment button in the Notification Properties dialog box.

    In an object’s Containment view, the tabs that appear depend on which IP Managers are deployed, which feature licenses are installed, and which components are discovered.

    Note:

    Containment is not available for user-defined groups and services.

    “Network containment tab pages” table in the VMware Smart Assurance IP Manager Reference Guide, provides information on Network classes, Containment tab pages, and the associated attributes.
