Displaying Operating System Details

Details about a specific operating system appear in a number of tabs in the center pane of the UI. The tabs and contents might vary based on the type of operating system selected and whether the operating system is agent or agentlessly managed. When a tab is not applicable, it will not appear in the UI. For example, the Libraries tab does not appear when there are no libraries associated with the operating system.

To view the details in the UI, perform the following steps:

  1. Expand Assets in the Navigation pane.
    • To display All Assets, expand Servers.

    • To display the Operating System groups, select Operating Systems from the menu.

    • To display user-defined groups, select All User Defined Groups from the menu, then select the group.

  2. Select an operating system in the Navigation pane.

    The following tabs appear in the center pane:

    • Dashboard: Displays the summary of the selected operating system, including the name, server name, whether the operating system is agent managed, the number of unassigned incidents, the current alert status, and the OS release. The dashboard also includes the operating system's membership graph, the status of incidents, and compliance reports, if any.

    • Summary: Displays the name of the selected Oracle Solaris operating system, description, server name, operating system version, number of CPU threads, active boot environment, the state, the length of running time, and zone patching information.
