Bulk Configuration

The Bulk Configuration feature of PA Server Monitor will help you quickly configure large numbers of monitors, computers, actions, etc.

The Bulk Configuration dialog consists of two main areas:

Once you've chosen the operation, and checked the boxes next to the objects that you want to operate on, press the Select Options button. This lets you specify details for the operation to be performed. When you're done, the text box next to the Select Options button will display a summary of what will happen.

After reviewing the summary of the operation to be performed, press the Perform Operation button. This will send your configuration request to the service for processing. Most operations are handled very quickly, but a few could take a minute or so. When the operation completes you will be shown a success message, or an error message with a reason for the failure.

NOTE: The Bulk Configuration option only works when the Console and the monitoring service are both running -- it doesn't work if the service has not been started.
