Managing the 3Com CoreBuilder Switch

The eG Enterprise cannot automatically discover a 3Com CoreBuilder switch so that you need to manually add the component for monitoring. To manage a 3Com CoreBuilder switch component, do the following:

  1. Log into the eG administrative interface.
  2. Follow the Components -> Add/Modify menu sequence in the Infrastructure tile of the Admin menu.
  3. In the COMPONENTS page that appears next, select 3Com Core Builder as the Component type. Then, click the Add New Component button. This will invoke Figure 1.

  6. When you attempt to sign out, a list of unconfigured tests appears (see Figure 2).
