Viewing alerts

Every 300 seconds, the topology diagram is updated to get server alert status from the Active Administrator foundation server (AFS). The node for each domain controller displays in a color to indicate its status.

When replication latency alerts are detected, the color of the link between domain controller nodes indicates the status.

Click Show alerts in the tool bar.
NOTE: If Show alerts is not selected, clicking Refresh also displays the list of alerts.
The list of alerts displays below the diagram in the Alert Summary area. The alert severity, alert name, source, domain, and the alert start time display.
Type the domain controller in the Search alerts box. Only the alerts for that domain controller display.
Click the alert link in the Alert column to view the alert description.
Click Alert details in the Alert description box to view details about the alert.

Customizing the topology layout

You can change the forest topology layout by dragging the domain controller and site objects on the topology diagram. If you chose to save the layout, the layout is associated with the forest in the cache and loads the next time you run the topology on that forest. Each user can create their own layout that is associated with their user account.

Click Edit layout in the tool bar.
NOTE: While you are editing the diagram, the Show alerts check box is cleared and the alerts list is hidden.
NOTE: If the forest topology diagram exceeds the design area, click Zoom to fit the diagram within the design pane.

If you have not saved the layout and want to return the diagram to the original state, open the Discover Forest tab and run the discovery again.
