Server Resource Manager Home - Direct Link

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Don't suppose anyone knows the correct URL parameters to pass into an IE session to bring up and populate a managed server's Server Resource Manager Home Page?

This URL brings up the page itself, but I dont know the other parameters needed to send a GUID for the silverlight webparts to populate.

http://NSSERVERNAME/Altiris/Console/PortalPage.aspx?ItemGuid=673A2BB6-E4BA-4605-9C82-F1C210C9A517

I would like to use this as a User Defined Right Click Funciton in the SMP console.

SMP 7.1 SP2

Thanks

If you right-click any computer resource in Manage->Computers and then select Resource Manager, it will bring up that page for you.  Here is the URL it uses:

http://<NameOfServer>/Altiris/Console/Dashboard/DashboardView.aspx?ResourceGuid=<GUID>

That is sort of what I am getting at. However, the default view in the resource manager must then be changed to the Server Resource Manager View from a drop down.

The URL I provided goes directly to that view, but I dont know what other parameters must be passed into the URL string .... resourceguid and guid dont really cut it.

Hope that makes sense.

Ah, gotcha!  Here you go:

http://localhost/Altiris/Console/PortalPage.aspx?C...

You need that exact ConsoleGuid and ItemGuid, and then pass it the specific ResourceGuid.

For any page, simply right click on it and choose Properties - you'll see the full URL in there.

Many thanks! You reminded me of an old trick that I have forgotten. I now how this view as a direct Right Click action.

Gotta love the days of www.altirisadmin.com and your tips /help on patch management.
