You can create a console layout for the Global Console, save it to the Global Manager, and associate it with a user profile so that it automatically opens for users associated with that profile. In addition, you can save the console to the Global Manager so that users can open it from the Global Console by selecting File > Open Remote.

There are two methods to set up access to a saved console:

  • Specify the console name when you set up a new user profile, the saved console opens automatically when the user attaches to the Global Console.

  • Save a console to a directory that users can access. Console users can use the Open Remote As command to open consoles in this directory.

    The VMware Smart Assurance Service Assurance Manager Operator Guide describes how to set up and save a console.
