Not sure if there is an issue, but my AJAX Tree's... all of them, and my Applications listing... are all in alphabetical order.
I can not find an option to change this from said alphabetized setup. Even my list of servers.. though this is all in my AJAX Node list.
Its probably easier to search using the 'Search for Nodes' resource you can add to a View.
I tried a couple things out here, one idea I have for you may be in the AJAX tree >>Manage Nodes>>then click the machine name header to group them alphabetically by machine name.
I also (in the newsest version) in any Node tree click Edit and then enter a SQL query as a filter Like this
A few example filters are:
Filter the results to only show Nodes that are not UP
The valid status levels are:
UNKNOWN (The current up/down status of the Node is unknown) UP (The Node is responding to PINGs) DOWN (The Node is not responding) WARNING (The Node may be responding, but the connection from the server to the Node is dropping packets)
Only show Cisco devices
Vendor = 'Cisco'
Only show devices in Atlanta. (This assumes you have added a custom property named City)
City = 'Atlanta'
Only show devices beginning with "AX3-"
Caption Like 'AX3-*'
Only show Nortel devices that are Down
Vendor Like 'Nortel*' AND Status=2
Only show devices ending in '-TX'
Vendor Like '*-TX'
OR you can go further down and make Filter within a filter for any of these criteria:
I sincerely hope this helps out.
