  5. Configure the manager properties with the Properties form.

  7. (Optional) Assign the manager alert distribution policy with the Event Distribution Policy window.

Add an appliance to the console

Use this procedure whenever you want to add a new manager or other network appliance to the LEM console.

  1. Locate and record the appliance serial or registration number. This information is required for a future step.
  2. Open the LEM console.
  3. Click Manage > Appliances.

    6. Click the Model drop-down menu and select the appropriate appliance model.

      If you are not certain about the model type, select Unknown. If your model type does not appear in the drop-down list, select Other. Your selection will not impact manager operations. If you selected a listed model type, an image of the appliance displays in the Details pane.
