Managing resources from the built-in cube browser

IT Analytics

You can manage resources from the built-in cube browser. You can access the right-click menu options for resources from the cube browser. The right-click menu options let you access Resource Manager. They let you assign a computer to an organizational group They also let you perform other actions, such as accessing a computer by Remote Management.

The right-click menu option Display Resource List displays only for the cubes in the Client and Server Management Content Pack. The cubes must have the Computer or the Asset dimension present. Resources from external CMDB connections are excluded from the resource list because you cannot manage them by using the tools that are provided. Therefore, the number of computers that are in the resource list may not match the number of resources that are shown in the field that you have selected in the cube browser.
