This procedure describes how to run comparisons by using the browser interface. You can also run comparisons by using the following command.
cmp.dj.add – Runs a comparison
For a detailed description of this command, see Chapter 5, cmp: CLI Commands for Running Comparisons, in Sun N1 Service Provisioning System 5.1 Command-Line Interface Reference Manual.
If you have saved a comparison involving a component, and that component has been upgraded or its version numbers have changed for some other reason, the provisioning software automatically updates the comparison you saved to run against the new version of the component.
You must belong to a user group that has permission to run comparisons on a particular host set.
From the Comparisons page, select the comparison that you want to run.
(Optional) Modify the comparison criteria.
Click Save & Run.
The comparison's Progress page is displayed.
After the comparison completes, the comparison's Results page is displayed.
Running a comparison does not lock down the ability to perform other operations. You can perform other operations while waiting for a comparison to complete.
(Optional) To view the comparison's results in another format, click either Print or Download.
