|Charts, Grids and Home Page Components||Spotlight displays provide detailed statistics of the monitored system, relevant to diagnosing the cause of alarms. Make the best use of them.|
|View | Options||Customize Spotlight.|
|Troubleshooting||Solve problems using Spotlight.|
This section identifies general problems that you may encounter when using Spotlight applications, and details how to address those problems. For problems caused in specific Spotlight applications, see the help for that application.
When first installed, Spotlight can be used with full functionality for a specified trial period. When the trial period expires, contact your Questrepresentative to obtain an authorization key to continue.
Make sure that you enter the authorization key exactly as stated on your Product Authorization sheet or as provided by your Questdistributor. If you enter the authorization key incorrectly, the following message is displayed:
Invalid authorization key
Once the trial period has expired, if an authorization key is not supplied, only the Spotlight home page will be visible. If you click any of the drilldown buttons, the following message is displayed:
You do not have a license for “Spotlight...” that enables access to this functionality. Please contact Questfor information about obtaining the correct license.
How to enter an authorization key
