About the Enterprise Server Administration User Interface

When you access the Enterprise Server user interface, the Home page is displayed. What you can see depends on your access permissions, set by your login ID.


The Enterprise Server Administration menus appear in a panel on the left side of the page. The menu options are grouped under headings, such as Actions. You see only the menu options that are appropriate to your permission level. Some Enterprise Server Administration; actions are available as push buttons on tables.

Status line

The status line appears towards the top of the page, under the Enterprise Server Administration heading. This line provides information about the status of the Directory Server. If the information is an error message, it appears in red.

Enterprise server instances

Information about the enterprise server instances is presented in tables on the user interface. You can modify the level of information displayed on the home page by using the the expand button and the contract button buttons in the top left-hand corner of the servers table.

Most tables contain one or more Edit buttons, which you can click to go to a page to update the selected object's attributes, and an Add button, which you can click to go to a page where you can add an object of that type.

Refreshing a page

Many pages contain a Refresh button. Click this after you have performed an action that should be reflected in the contents of that page's table. For example, if you have just added a server, click Refresh on the Home page, and the details of the new server will appear in the servers table. Some pages also include an Auto-refresh interval field that enables you to specify the interval (in seconds) between automatic refreshes. The default (and the minimum) is 10 seconds; a blank space means no automatic refresh.
