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||

Log on to the NNMi console as an operator with the credentials provided by your administrator. To log on to the NNMi console, open a web browser and specify the following URL:
In this instance, <NNMi_FQDN> is the FQDN of the NNMi management server and <port> is the port configured with NNMi.
NNMi enables an NNMi administrator to limit visibility and control to parts of the network for some or all operators. Tenants are the top-level organization to which a node belongs.
Security Groups enable and NNMi administrator to group objects that require the same access level.
Security Group Mapping controls (through User Groups) which User Accounts can access a node and its hosted objects, such as an interface. Each node is associated with only one Security Group and Tenant.
Users see only those members of an object group (for example, Node Group or Router Redundancy Group) for which they have access. If a user cannot access any nodes in the group, the group is not visible to that user.
If your NNMi administrator has configured Security Groups to limit node access, then as a network operator you can view a node and its associated incidents only if one of the User Groups to which you belongs is associated with that node's Security Group.
If a node is deleted, only an NNMi administrator can view the incidents associated with that node.
Select Help → System Information to view the User Account, NNMi RoleDetermined by your membership in one of four special NNMi User Groups (NNMi Administrators, NNMi Level 2 Operators, NNMi Level 1 Operators, or NNMi Guest Users). This membership determines what you can see and do within the NNMi console., and User Groups for the current NNMi session.
If your assigned NNMi Role is Guest, you cannot change the password. Contact your NNMi administrator to request a change of password.
NNMi administrators can allow certain users to change their NNMi password at any time using File → Change Password.

- Select File → Change Password.
- In the Old Password attribute, type your current password.
In the New Password attribute, type your new password.
