Open Control Center page

Choose Control Center > Device Control to open the Control Center page, where you can check the status of each device, and start, stop, or restart devices. The status is displayed within five seconds of loading the page.

The rows on this page contain five columns, with a radio button to the left of each row.

This page always contains at least one row for the Controller.

As soon as you add a device on the Device Configuration page, this Control Center page also shows a row for that Cisco Unified Intelligence Center Reporting Server device. Use the Filter feature to narrow the list of names.

Table 1 Rows on this page

Field

Description

Name

The name of the device.

For the Controller, this field is populated by default.

For each member, this field shows the name of the device from the Device Management page. Each name is a link; click the name to open the sign in page for that node.

Changing the name on this page also changes it on the Device Configuration page.

Host Address

The IP address for the device.

Device Type

A description of the device (Controller or Member).

Server Type

The server type is always CUIC.

Status

The current state of the device. Possible values are:

  • Starting - the server is in the process of starting up.
  • Unknown - the server or subsystem that communicates with the Administration Console could not be reached.
  • Stopped - the server is not running.
  • Running (in service) - the server is running and active.
  • Running (partial service) - the server is running, but is not ready to work. The server may be starting up, or there may be one or more issues, for instance, the connection to Unified ICM is down.
  • Stopping - the server is in the process of stopping.

Actions from this page

You can access and sign in to a member node.

You can start, shutdown, or restart a device by selecting the radio box for the device and clicking the appropriate button. Buttons are dimmed for operations not supported on the device at that time.

The status of the operation is displayed at the bottom of the page. When starting, stopping, or restarting, a confirmation dialog is displayed to confirm the current action you are performing.


Note


Start, Shutdown, and Restart refer to the application process running on the server, and not the hardware or operating system.
