In Essentials 2007, views, like other monitoring objects, are contained in Management Packs. If a view is contained in a sealed Management Pack, you can open the properties of the view but you cannot save any changes to it. Instead, you can change the display options of the view and then save it as a personalized view.

For more information about views, see Views.

To personalize a state view

  1. In the Essentials 2007 console, click Monitoring.

  2. In the Monitoring pane, right-click the view that you want to personalize and then click Personalize view. The Personalize view dialog box displays with the default settings of the view.

  3. In Columns to display, click to place a check next to the property that you want to display in your view. You can also click to remove any checkmarks set by the original view. In the Sort columns by box, click the drop-down arrow to choose a property by which you want to sort the monitored objects in your view, and then click OK.

    In a state view, the option to sort by groups is not available. This option is available in other views, such as the alert view and event view.
