SRC Configuration Wizards Overview (C-Web Interface)

The C-Web configuration wizard enables you to enter the most common configuration scenarios and prompts you for input specific to your configuration scenario. At the end of the wizard, you can either commit or discard the configuration changes that are displayed in a tree-like format.

How the Configuration Wizards Work (C-Web Interface)

You can invoke a configuration wizard from the SRC C-Web interface. The configuration wizard uses the standard or customized wizard definition file as input to group and present related configurations on a single page of the wizard. You can upload the customized definition file by navigating to the specific wizard definition file from your environment. You can also edit the wizard definition file, upload the modified file, and customize the configuration wizard display by using the C-Web interface. In the pop-up wizard, each configuration step is presented in the order in which it is defined in the wizard definition file. A step is composed of closely knit configuration inputs for the same component. A collection defines repetitive steps in the wizard, which enables you to use multiple instances of the configuration setup. Collections helps you easily configure multiple instances.

When you close the configuration wizard pop-up, a confirmation pop-up asks you if you want to save the uncommitted changes. On confirmation, the uncommitted changes are saved in a temporary file called the tag file. The naming convention of a tag file is <wizard definition filename>_<username>_Cwebtag_<timestamp>.tmp.

Where:

To resume configuration at a later time, you need to specify the tag filename and the wizard name. When you commit the configuration changes, the saved tag file is automatically deleted.

Navigating Screens in the Wizard (C-Web Interface)

You can navigate around the wizard pop-up using the next and back buttons. On each wizard pop-up, enter the configuration data. When you finish configuring the data on all wizard pop-ups, click Finish to view the modified configuration changes along with any validation errors. The commit button is unavailable if any validation error is displayed in the wizard. In this case, click << Go Back to navigate to the wizard pop-up for making changes in the configuration. When no validation errors are displayed in the modified configuration wizard, you can click Commit after checking the configuration to commit your changes. Figure 19 shows a sample screen for the C-Web configuration wizard.
