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||

Encryption of configuration file settings
You can encrypt values within the HPE Service Manager configuration file (sm.ini) to protect passwords and authentication information. The encryption scheme is ideal for connection parameters such as RDBMS or LDAP user names and passwords. Using a command line utility you can convert any value to an AES256-256-CBC encrypted value. You can then copy the encrypted value into the configuration file and add an asterisk to the beginning of the parameter name. The asterisk is a required element that indicates to the server that the parameter value is encrypted.
For example, the unencrypted value:
Becomes the following value when encrypted:
After you have encrypted a configuration file value there is no way to convert it back to clear text. The Service Manager server decrypts the value for administrative purposes, but it does not save or store the decrypted value.
Note Only use the encryption scheme to encrypt server parameters in the Service Manager configuration file (sm.ini). Do not encrypt other values in other files as this may damage your system or cause data loss.
In addition, the values of the following security parameters in the sm.ini file are encrypted automatically during the server startup. You do not need to encrypt them manually.
