Global Settings Window

The Global Settings window allows you to configure component settings that apply throughout the configuration group. These global settings are defined as follows:

General settings
You can configure settings for the entire configuration group in the following areas:
Custom alert fields
You can create fields that Microsoft Operations Manager 2000 (MOM) displays in alerts. Any alerts generated in the configuration group will contain these fields.
Alert resolution states
You can delete and modify most alert resolution states, as well as add your own. You can specify service level agreement times, the maximum time an alert is expected to stay in a resolution state.
E-mail server
You can specify the e-mail settings used by the Consolidator to send e-mail responses.
Web addresses
You can specify the location of the Web Console and any reports saved to the web.
You can read acknowledgment and copyright information, and apply a new license file or product key.
You can specify the TCP/IP port that agents will use when communicating with the Consolidators.

Agent Managers
You can specify how often Agent Managers scan the Managed Computers list, and perform a manual managed computers scan. You can identify the agent service account, and specify how agents are deployed. You can specify whether MOM immediately installs or uninstalls agents as required, or adds them to the Pending Installations list. You can also specify the amount of time MOM waits before removing unneeded agents.
You can specify how often Consolidators poll for rule changes, the number of responses that can run simultaneously, and how the Consolidator buffers data.
You can specify agent buffering properties, and heartbeat parameters. You can also specify the number of responses that can run simultaneously, communication retry parameters, packet settings, and logging parameters.
