If you need to locate an element by name, class, or IP address, use one of the following search tools. For example, if the class exceeds 1,000 elements and the Topology Browser does not expand, you can select the class in the Find Instance search tool to list all of its instances. After you receive search results, you can open the Topology Browser for topological information about the element, examine components of the element with the Containment dialog box, or display a map of it using Show Map.

In the consoles, the Edit menu lists the options, Find Instance and Find System:

  • Use Find Instance to locate any topological element including application services, service offerings, service subscribers, and systems.

  • Use Find System to locate systems or devices like routers and switches.
