Two types of pop-up menus are available in a network topology map:

  • Right-click a selected node in a map

    Opens a pop-up menu that enables you to select any of the map types available to the selected node (for example, Physical Connectivity, VLAN Connectivity, Group Membership), to display notification properties (if any) for the selected node, and so on.

    For a node marked with a + (plus) sign, the Expand Node menu option allows you to expand the node to see all nodes that are physically or logically connected to the node.

  • Right-click an open space in a map

    Opens a pop-up menu that enables you to display a circular layout of the map, to manually position nodes in the map, and so on. The Reset map menu option enables you to reset changes made to the map or to return to the saved map display.

    In the topology tree of a Map Console, a pop-up menu is also available when you right-click an object. This menu enables you to select any of the map types available to the selected object, to display notification properties (if any) for the selected object, and so on.

    The VMware Smart Assurance Service Assurance Manager Operator Guide provides detailed descriptions of map menus and pop-up menus available for the Map Console.
