An overview of features and basic use of the product.
Configure the Enterprise Service Manager
Overview of the steps to set up and configure a new installation of the esm:
Working with Clusters
You can organize the gateway clusters on the enterprise tree to make the most sense for you. The following tasks are all performed on the Configure page.
The Monitor page displays statistics about the clusters and nodes currently managed by the esm. By default, no property is monitored when a cluster is added and no statistics appear in the Monitored Properties grid. You choose which properties to monitor and then configure them accordingly. You do not need to be mapped to each Gateway cluster to configure monitoring.
Migrate Services and Policies
The esm allows you to copy (migrate) policies from one gateway cluster to another. Migrating is a quick and convenient way to copy a policy and all its dependencies to a different Gateway, so that the policy is ready to run on the target system.
Work with Users
Setting up users in the esm is straightforward: simply create an account. You can also grant that person administrative privileges by assigning a role. You can have as many administrators in the esm as you like. If the person will not be performing administrative tasks or managing cluster nodes, then no role is necessary.
You create reports using the Reports tab in the esm. These reports be saved in either PDF or HTML formats.
Enterprise Service Manager Reference
This section describe each tab on the esm interface in greater detail:

Appendix B: Configuring the ESM Logs

By default, debug logging is not enabled due to the impact on performance. Follow the steps below to enable debug logging or to control the level of detail contained in the log files displayed in the .
