Managed set collection for a DataPower appliance

Use this page to add, view, or delete a managed set. A managed set is a group of appliances whose firmware, shareable appliance settings and managed domains are all kept synchronized. To view this console page, click Servers > DataPower > Managed sets.

We can then:


Name

User-defined symbolic name for a managed set.

A managed set name must be unique and cannot contain an invalid character. The name field cannot contain the following characters: # $ @ \ / , : ; " * ? < > | = + & % '.


Operational Status

Aggregated operational status of all the managed domains on all of the appliances in the managed set.

This field is read-only. The following values might appear in this field:

up

Indicates that all of the service objects in all the managed domains on all of the appliances in the managed set are enabled.

partial

Indicates that the service objects in all the managed domains on all of the appliances in the managed set are a mix of enabled, disabled and unknown.

down

Indicates that all of the service objects in all the managed domains on all of the appliances in the managed set are disabled.

unknown

Indicates that the state of all of the all the managed domains on all of the appliances in the managed set cannot be determined. It is possible that there are no managed domains, or the state of the managed domains has yet to be retrieved, or that communication has been lost to the appliances.


Synchronization Status

Whether the designated firmware version, sharable appliance settings, and managed domain versions for the managed set are synchronized across all of the appliances in the managed set. This synchronization status combines the firmware synchronization status, the settings synchronization status, and the synchronization status of all the managed domains on all the appliances of the managed set.

This field is read-only. The following values might appear in this field:

synced

Indicates that the managed set is synchronized.

changes pending

Indicates that the synchronization is queued. At least one appliance in the managed set has a firmware synchronization, settings synchronization, or managed domain synchronization queued.

in progress

Indicates that the synchronization is currently being synchronized. At least one appliance in the managed set has a firmware synchronization, settings synchronization, or managed domain synchronization in progress. Other firmware synchronizations, settings synchronizations, or managed domain synchronizations might also be pending for appliances in the managed set.

unknown

Indicates that the synchronization status is not known. At least one appliance in the managed set has a firmware synchronization, settings synchronization, or managed domain synchronization for which the synchronization state is unknown. Typically, this means that the appliance manager has not yet contacted the appliance to get the management status. Other firmware synchronizations, settings synchronizations, or managed domain synchronizations might also have changes pending, or in progress for appliances in the managed set.

error

Indicates that an attempt to synchronize the managed set has failed because of an error on an appliance in the managed set. The appliance did respond, but responded with an error. Appliances in the managed set might also have a management status of unknown, in progress or changes pending for a firmware synchronization, settings synchronization, or managed domain synchronization. See the error log for the deployment manager for more information.

unreachable

Indicates that the appliance is unreachable. An attempt to synchronize the managed set has failed because an appliance is not responding. Appliances in the managed set might also have a management status of unknown, in progress, changes pending or error for a firmware synchronization, settings synchronization, or managed domain synchronization. See the error log for the deployment manager for more information.
