Quick Start

The typical sequence of events, including installation is the following:

Install the software -- See Installing the Application for details.

Discover Network Devices -- See Discovery in the User Guide for detailed instructions, or click File > Open > Inventory > Resource Discovery and enter the IP addresses you want to discover. You may also have to enter SNMP and Telnet login/password combinations to fully discover equipment. Once you have discovered equipment, you can manage it.

Begin Managing your network 

You can also administer your application, setting up users, and equipment access passwords, and groups for both users and equipment, as you begin to use it.


If you have complied with the prerequisites for installation and do not need basic instructions, refer to Complex Installations for instructions about how to install the application in complex environments that have distributed application, database and/or mediation servers, or clusters of these.
