Configure User Interface notifications

Configure User Interface notifications

You can configure the appliance to display notifications in the Administrator Console when certain types of manual tasks are performed.

Administrators can configure the notification groups and users for which notifications are generated. A notification bell icon is located in the top-right corner of the screen. When new notifications are available, an orange indicator appears.

User Interface notifications are enabled for administrative accounts by default, all other users must subscribe to them if they want to make the notifications visible. Use the bell icon to show or hide the Notifications pane on the right. Each notification has a time stamp. You can delete individual notifications by clicking the Delete icon in the top-right corner of each entry in the list. To clear the list of notifications, click Dismiss All.

On the left navigation pane, click Settings > Control Panel to display the Control Panel, then click Notifications.
On the Notifications page, click UI Notifications.
If you want to delete all notifications after a certain time period, click Auto Delete Notifications After, and select the desired number of days. The default setting is Never, which preserves all notifications, and is a good option for administrators. For users that do not log in as often, you can choose to delete them after a certain period. Choose from the existing options, or select Custom and type the applicable number of days.
On the UI Notifications tab, review the groups of notifications that you can configure:



Source Media Notifications

These notifications appear when:

A Windows Imaging Format (WIM) file is imported using the System Image Import page on the appliance.

Offboard Storage Notifications

These notifications inform users when offboard storage is enabled or disabled.

Driver Feed Notifications

These notifications are displayed when a user manually installs or removes one or more a drivers from the driver feed. The notification reflects the operation outcome, indicating a success, failure, or error.

RSA Notifications

These notifications appear when a new RSA (Remote Site Appliance) is added to the Systems Deployment Appliance.

Deployment Notifications

These notifications show up to indicate a successful completion of a manual deployment or a failure (as applicable). Success notification include a link to the manual Deployment Details page, and a failure notification link to the Manual Deployment Progress page.

Package Management Notifications

These notifications are displayed to indicate the state of the package import or export, such as the operation start, end, import or export failure, file corruption, invalid contents, state of a manual package import or export, and so on.

Enabling link aggregation

Enabling link aggregation

By default, link aggregation is not enabled on the appliance. The appliance requires that your switch is capable of a LACP (802.3ad) connection.

Before you enable link aggregation, set your switch to actively negotiate LACP. See your switch vendor's documentation for details. Passive negotiation mode does not work. If your switch is set to operate in passive mode, the switch cannot negotiate the appliance LACP connection. For an example of a Cisco® switch configuration running the IOS operating system set to active mode, view the online FreeBSD® Handbook.

All interfaces in each EtherChannel must be the same speed and duplex.

Create an aggregate link

Create an aggregate link

The physical appliance provides two ports. You can connect both ports to the network (LAN) to enable link aggregation. You cannot enable link aggregation if offboard storage is configured.

On the left navigation pane, click Settings > Control Panel to display the Control Panel, then click Network Settings to display the Network Settings page.
Select the Enable Link Aggregation check box.
Click Save.
Enter the Link Aggregation IP Address.
