Enabling Remote Management

Once a QoreStor system is registered with the Global View Portal, you have the option of enabling remote management, which allows management and configuration of a QoreStor system through the Global View Portal.

Viewing and using the GlobalView page

The Global View Cloud Portal displays a convenient view of the operating statistics for all of the QoreStor and DR Series systems that you have added. On this page, you can monitor the status of and easily navigate to the QoreStor and DR Series systems that you have added to the Global View Cloud Portal. Using the portal makes it easy to navigate to a different system in your enterprise without having to log out and log on by using new browser sessions.

To view and use the Global View Cloud Portal, follow these steps.

  1. To view the GlobalView Cloud Portal, enter the URL ( https://QuestQoreStor.co) in a supported browser and log in.
  2. In the Organizations list, click the desired organization. The GlobalView Assets page is displayed, showing a summary and a list of assets that have been added to GlobalView.

    This list includes all of the systems in GlobalView and provides a high-level status. By default, assets are listed alphabetically by host name. You can sort the list by a clicking the column header, which toggles between ascending and descending order. This sort order is retained if you leave the page and return later. The following table describes the information displayed in the asset list.

    Column Description
    Asset Type Describes the type of system (QoreStor or DR Series system) listed.
    Host name Lists the host name of the system
    Service tag For QoreStor systems, this column lists the System ID. For DR Series systems, it lists the Service Tag.
    Product model Lists the model of the asset.
