Searching the Help
To search for information in the Help, type a word or phrase in the Search box. When you enter a group of words, OR is inferred. You can use Boolean operators to refine your search.
Results returned are case insensitive. However, results ranking takes case into account and assigns higher scores to case matches. Therefore, a search for "cats" followed by a search for "Cats" would return the same number of Help topics, but the order in which the topics are listed would be different.
|A single word||
||Topics that contain the word "cat". You will also find its grammatical variations, such as "cats".|
You can specify that the search results contain a specific phrase.
Topics that contain the literal phrase "cat food" and all its grammatical variations.
Without the quotation marks, the query is equivalent to specifying an OR operator, which finds topics with one of the individual words instead of the phrase.
Two or more words in the same topic
|Either word in a topic||
|Topics that do not contain a specific word or phrase||
|Topics that contain one string and do not contain another||
|A combination of search types||

NNMi enables an NNMi administrator to configure the following global user interface features:
- The console timeout interval
- The initial view to display in the NNMi console
- Whether NNMi displays unlicensed features that require a special license, such as NNMi Advanced
For information about the additional user interface configurations available, including configuring Node Group map settings, setting the default values for maps and Line Graphs, and configuring menus and menu items: See Also
If you are using multiple tenants, you might want to remove the Nodes Group view from the NNMi console. See the "NNMi Console" chapter of the Network Node Manager i Software Deployment Reference for more information.
To configure user interface features, do the following:
Navigate to the User Interface Configuration form.
- From the workspace navigation panel, select the Configuration workspace.
- Expand User Interface.
- Select User Interface Configuration.
- Make your Global Control configuration choices (see the Global Control Attributes table).
- Make your additional configuration choices. Click here for a list of choices See Also.
Click Save and Close to apply your changes.
- To apply your Console Timeout or Initial View configuration changes, sign out of the NNMi console. After restarting the console, your changes should take effect.
NNMi's default session inactivity timeout value is 18 hours. Use this attribute to change the timeout interval in days, hours, and minutes.The minimum timeout value is 1 minute.
After this period, if no mouse movement occurs, the consoles locks and the user is prompted to sign in again.If your network operation center (NOC) has a large screen where a map of the most important nodes is continuously displayed, use a launched view. See Launch a Troubleshooting Workspace View.The map automatically updates every 30 seconds. (If you are using Mozilla Firefox, also see Configure Mozilla Firefox Timeout Interval.)
Use this attribute to specify the initial view to be automatically displayed in the NNMi console by default.
When selecting a view from the drop-down menu list, note the following:
The Default Author attribute specifies the Author attribute NNMi should use by default when you create a new instance of an object in NNMi. For example you might create a new incident configuration.
The Author attribute identifies who provided that instance of an object. The Author attribute value is also useful for filtering objects in certain views and when using the NNMi Export/Import feature.
Either keep the Default Author value of Customer or enter an Author attribute value representing you or your organization.
The Default Author value you specify then appears in the Author selection list in any appropriate form and appears by default as the Author value when you create a new instance of an object.
See Author form for important information.
|Enable URL Redirect||
Before enabling URL Redirect, verify that the NNMi management server's official Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) is set correctly and the DNS name is resolvable from any remote systems that need to access the NNMi management server. If the official FQDN does not meet these requirements, users will view errors when trying to access the NNMi console. To view the NNMi management server's official FQDN, do one of the following:
To change the official FQDN, use the nnmsetofficialfqdn.ovpl command line tool.
When URL Redirect is enabled, a user can sign into the NNMi console using any hostname (not case-sensitive) or IP address that is valid for the NNMi management server.
(NNMi Advanced's Global Network Management feature or Network Node Manager i Software Smart Plug-ins (iSPIs)) For environments configured with Single Sign-On (SSO) among multiple servers (which normally requires users to provide the official Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) that was configured during NNMi installation), this attribute enables NNMi to redirect URLs that contain the IP address or any hostname associated with the NNMi management server to the official FQDN. For more information, see the “Using Single Sign-On (SSO) with NNMi” chapter in the Network Node Manager i Software Deployment Reference (available at:
All NNMi management servers participating in Global Network Management or Single Sign-On (SSO) must have synchronized time stamps.
|Show Unlicensed Features||
By default, NNMi displays menus, views, and workspaces that require an additional license. If you do not have the required license, NNMi labels these features as
To determine which Unlicensed or Evaluation features could be displayed in your NNMi console, click here for more information.
See Purchase Network Node Manager i Smart Plug-ins and More for more information about possible Smart Plug-ins.
To hide Unlicensed or Evaluation features from the NNMi console, clear the Show Unlicensed Features check box. (Recommended if you do not plan to install a permanent license for these features.)
To display Unlicensed or Evaluation features in the NNMi console, select the Show Unlicensed Features check box.
|Enable Table Row Shading||
If enabled , NNMi color-codes each row of an incident view according to the incident status.
If disabled , incident views are not color-coded.
|Last Modified||Indicates the last date and time that any of the user interface attributes were modified.|
NNMi also enables you to configure features specific to Node Group Maps. See Define Node Group Map Settings for more information.
