Recatigorization in Business View

Post by 1971hemicuda » Dec 18, 2013 2:19 pm

Before I had a complete idea of how I wanted to setup Business View I changed some catagories on some of our hosts. It wont let me change it once its been set to a specific group. How do i change it once its been set

Hi Jason,

Can you please clarify your question? Do you mean that your hosts still have old attributes or what?

Thanks!

When you initially go into Business view and you click on the different tabs (Workspace, Cluster, Host, Storage, VM) there is a column labed "Group" in which you can add it to. By default it comes with "Mission Critical" and "Other"

Well, to start we just assinged our Production cluster to "Missioin Critical" but realized this was a good definition. But, it wont let me change it. At least not the same way i was able to assign it. It was just a drop down box before, now there is nothing

Jason,

Can you navigate to Workspace, choose the object you want and double-click on it to change the group assignment?

Thanks!

That is exactly what I was looking for. Sorry, it was slightly un-intuitive...but its all good now!
