Configuring the Configuration Manager

Starting the Configuration Manager

When you open the Configuration Manager, your first step is to connect to a server. Connecting to a server gives you access to its associated clusters, nodes, and discoveries. You need to know the name of the server, and the port number. The server name is the name of the computer where the server is installed. The port number was configured during the server installation. For more information, see Viewing Information About Your Enterprise Reporter Configuration and Installing Enterprise Reporter.Technical Documentation. 

 

NOTE:  

To start the Configuration Manager, you must be a discovery administrator.
