Applicable to Entuity v21.0 upwards
A Topology Group must contain at least two servers. Beyond this, a Topology Group can have the following variables:
- a server can appear in multiple Topology Groups.
- the servers in a Topology Group can also contain the consolidation server, if required, when the consolidation server is used to poll devices.
To create a new Topology Group:
Topology Groups are only created on the server that you are logged in to.
- Navigate to the Topology Group Management page (Main Menu > Administration > Topology Group Management).
- Ensure you are under the Groups tab.
- Click Create at the top of the page (or via the Overflow Menu).
- The Create Group form will open.
- Specify a Name for the Topology Group. This must not be the same as any other Topology Group.
- Specify a Description if you wish.
- Specify whether if the Topology Group is Enabled. If set to On, a discovery job will be scheduled to run every 10 minutes by default. The discovery job uses topology data from each server to discover links and check changes to existing links.
- Select the servers that you wish to include in the Topology Group. You must select at least two servers, and you can select the consolidation server amongst them.
- Click Done in the top right to save, otherwise click Cancel.
To edit a Topology Group:
If you remove a server from a Topology Group, the discovered links for that server will be removed from the that group.
- Navigate to the Topology Group Management page and select the Topology Group you wish to edit.
- Click Edit at the top of the page (or via the Overflow Menu or right-click Context Menu).
- The Edit Group form will open on the right, and will contain the same fields as when creating a Topology Group (see above).
- Make your desired changes and click Done in the top right to save, otherwise click Cancel.
To delete a Topology Group:
When you delete a Topology Group, all the discovered multi server links within that group will be automatically removed. The same links discovered by other groups will not be affected.
- Navigate to the Topology Group Management page and select the Topology Group you wish to delete.
- Click Delete at the top of the page (or via the Overflow Menu or right-click Context Menu).
- A confirmation dialog will appear.
