Before assigning images to map nodes, you must create the images and save them to the proper directory on the host where the Global Manager is running. Note that the icons included in the console are not loaded over the network.

The requirements for custom images are:

  • Images must be in GIF format.

  • Images must be 56 pixels square.

    After you obtain the custom images, copy them to the BASEDIR/smarts/local/images/icons directory. Images located in this directory are automatically displayed in the icon configuration dialog box. The filename of the image, minus any file extension, is used to identify the image.

    If an image file located on the Global Manager has the same name as an icon included with the console, the image located on the Global Manager takes precedence.
