About the Node View page

The Networks Node View page lets you view and modify the IP address assignments for the nodes in the HCP system.

Note

To view the Networks Node View page, you need the administrator, service, or monitor role. To change the IP address assignments for user-defined networks, you need the administrator role. You cannot modify IP addresses for the [hcp_system] or [hcp_backend] networks on the Networks Node View page

Understanding the node list

The Networks Node View page contains a list of all nodes in the HCP system. For each node, the list shows:

  • The node number (node ID).
  • The back-end IP address for the node.
  • The node status, either OK or Unavailable. You can change the IP addresses for a node regardless of its status.

To view the network IP address assignments for an individual node, click the node number. In the list of networks that appears, the networks for which the node has IP addresses are listed first, in ascending order by network name. These are followed by the networks for which the node doesn’t have IP addresses, also listed in ascending order by network name.

Managing the node list

By default, the nodes in the node list are listed 20 at a time in ascending order by node number. You can page through and sort the node list. The Networks Node View page indicates which nodes are shown out of the total number of nodes in the current list.

Paging

You can change the number of nodes displayed on each page of the node list shown on the Networks Node View page. To do this, in the Items per page field, select the number of nodes that you want to display on each page of the node list. The options are 10, 20, and 50.

To page forward or backward through the node list, click the next (GUID-E53D8EEE-3705-4C3C-B18A-BEB5FB24120A-low.png) or back (GUID-18C7E4A4-FD0B-42E4-B8A2-398D820683E9-low.png ) control, respectively.

Before you begin

To view the Networks Node View page, you need the administrator, service, or monitor role. To change the IP address assignments for user-defined networks, you need the administrator role. You cannot modify IP addresses for the [hcp_system] or [hcp_backend] networks on the Networks Node View page

Procedure

  1. In the Page field, type the page number that corresponds to the node list page that you want to view.

  2. Press Enter.

Sorting the node list

You can sort the node list in ascending or descending order by node number. To change the sort order, click the Node ID column heading. Each time you click the column heading, the sort order switches between ascending and descending.

Filtering the list by node number

You can use the fields and controls that appear above the node list to filter the items in the list by node number or by node status.

When filtered by node number, the list displays only the node with the specified node number.

Before you begin

To view the Networks Node View page, you need the administrator, service, or monitor role. To change the IP address assignments for user-defined networks, you need the administrator role. You cannot modify IP addresses for the [hcp_system] or [hcp_backend] networks on the Networks Node View page

Procedure

  1. Select Node ID from the drop-down list above the node list.

  2. In the text field, type the node number for the node you want to display in the node list.

  3. Click the find control (GUID-A96B6189-9E48-4DE6-8094-C245E86B76C4-low.png).

Filtering the list by node status

When filtered by node status, the list includes only those nodes that have the specified node status (ok or unavailable).

Before you begin

To view the Networks Node View page, you need the administrator, service, or monitor role. To change the IP address assignments for user-defined networks, you need the administrator role. You cannot modify IP addresses for the [hcp_system] or [hcp_backend] networks on the Networks Node View page

Procedure

  1. Select Status from the drop-down list above the node list.

  2. In the text field, type the text string that corresponds to the node status that you want to use as a filter:

    1. Type ok to filter the list to show the nodes that have a status of ok.

    2. Type unavailable to filter the list to show the nodes that have a status of unavailable.

  3. Click the find control (GUID-A96B6189-9E48-4DE6-8094-C245E86B76C4-low.png ).
