To provide a saved console in a user profile:

  1. Configure the console layout and select File > Save As > Save Remote As.

    The console is saved to a directory that corresponds to your username under BASEDIR/smarts/local/consoles. For example, if you are logged in as the user “admin”, the console is saved to the BASEDIR/smarts/local/consoles/admin directory.

    When you select Save Remote As, you are prompted to select the Domain Managers to which the saved console should automatically reattach in the event of a disconnect. The list includes those Domain Managers to which you are currently attached. By choosing to automatically reattach to a Domain Manager, you can omit the attach and detach console operations from the user profile.

  2. To make the console available to all Global Console users, move the saved console from its current directory to the BASEDIR/smarts/local/consoles directory.

    When a saved console is located in this directory, a user can also open the console using File > Open Remote.

  3. Add the console to the user profiles as described in “Adding or removing a saved console” on page 46.

  4. To make the console available to users of a particular user profile, move the saved console from its current directory to the BASEDIR/smarts/local/consoles/<user_profile> directory.


    The BASEDIR/smarts/local/consoles/<user_profile> directorymust be manually created by the administrator.
