Marking or Unmarking a Network Element
Use this procedure to mark or unmark a network element. A marked network element allows you to visually distinguish that network element from other network elements, such as to highlight an important node or nodes in the network, or to flag a node to other users in the system.
Marking is implemented as a mode, which is part of the replicated data set when running with multiple servers. For more information on replicated data, see Running Multiple Servers with Server Replication.
- To mark one or more network elements:
Select the network element(s) in the Network tree or in the Topology Map view, then right-click and choose Mode >Marked.
Modes are mutually exclusive. Only one mode can be selected at a time.
Click OK in the ensuing dialog to confirm the action.
The NE(s) is now shown with a mark in the Topology Map view and in the Network tree.
- To remove a mark on one or more network elements:
Select the network element(s) in the Network tree or in the Topology Map view, then right-click and select Mode >Disable Marked.
The NE(s) is shown with the mark removed.
