The InveStore v4 console presents to the Storage system Administrator four nodes or "views" for control and administration of the storage system. The "parent" node is the "InveStore Enterprise" node. From the "parent" node are the various levels leading to the physical components of the storage system.
The InveStore console presents these different nodes of the storage system using an Explorer like interface. This interface, which is contained within the MMC snap-in, displays all of the connected Servers, Libraries, Volumes and Volume sets under the entire InveStore Storage Enterprise.
Each "view" or node has a specific "Action" menu and "Toolbar" with "Tool" Icons that provide the various functions related to the "current view". This allows the new v4 Console to provide greater detail, for ease of control and administration.
