Rack View screen

The Rack Topology tab shows a graphical representation of the physical enclosure, called the graphical view. The graphical view consists of a front view and a rear view. When you mouse over a device in the graphical view, a window appears with information on that device. The graphical view provides status on each device in the enclosure and gives you the option of selecting an individual device for more detailed information.

If you have multiple enclosures, some appear in the Rack Overview as all gray. To view the enclosure contents and information, enter a user name and password in the text boxes, and then click Sign In. A graphical view of the enclosure appears.
