Operators can perform a variety of tasks in response to notifications or to changed states of map icons. Operators usually address the notifications based upon their severity and perform exploratory or corrective actions. This chapter provides step-by-step instructions for acting upon notifications and for saving and recording information.


Depending upon their user profiles defined by the VMware Smart Assuranceadministrator, operators might have access to different types of consoles and console operations.

Instructions apply to the following consoles: Notification Log, Map, Topology Browser, and Summary View, unless noted otherwise.
