Folders View & Actions

The folders view is a display of managed computers separated by their parent folders in the organization tree. This is useful in case you would like to see aggregated measures for computers located in the same folder. For example, if you would like to see how many user sessions are active in your RDS farm, you can place all RDS in one folder and look at the “Total Active User Sessions” column for that folder’s row.
All the folders and subfolders are presented in a flat hierarchy, so you can see aggregated performance and data for any folder in the organization.

Hypervisor folders

The Hypervisor folder is where all hypervisor connections are created and maintained. From the top-level Hypervisors folder, you can add either more hypervisor folders (to help organize your management of your hypervisor environment and for security policy purposes) or add a hypervisor connection. All objects in the hypervisor folders branch of the tree are treated as regular folders in the Information Grid, and therefore show up in the Folders View the same as regular ControlUp folders.

Because of this new type of folder and additional information that comes from the hypervisors, there are new columns that are specific to a virtualization environment. Non-hypervisor folders will have “N/A” in these columns.

Folders View Actions

Besides browsing, searching, grouping and sorting the data, this view allows you to perform a variety of actions on the selected folders(s).
These actions are available when selecting a folder or a group of folders. They can be invoked using either the Ribbon Bar “Actions” button, the context menu (right-click), or the Actions Panel.

Connect

Contact the ControlUp Agent on all managed computers in the selected folder(s) and start gathering performance data.

Disconnect

Close the connection to the ControlUp agent on all managed computers in the selected folder(s).

Flush DNS

Clears the DNS client cache (ipconfig /flushdns) on all managed computers in the selected folder(s).

Send Message
This action allows administrators to send a plain text message to all the users on all managed computers in the selected folder(s).

Send Super Message
This action allows administrators to send an enhanced message to all the users on all managed computers in the selected folder(s).. This action can be useful when conveying an important message to the end users and gathering the users’ feedback (for example when testing a recent software fix). The message can be configured:
1. To include rich-text formatting and graphics
2. To close the message automatically when a configured timeout has elapsed
3. To stay on top of all other user’s windows
4. To not allow the user to close the message window
5. To allow the user to respond to the message:
6. To use pre-configured reply buttons (such as Yes;No or OK;Cancel)
7. To allow free text replies
If the user response option is enabled, a window will open displaying all of the users’ feedback gathered by the Super Message.

Refresh Machine Group Policy
This action triggers a Group Policy update on all managed computers in the selected folder(s) using Windows built-in gpupdate.exe utility. You can manipulate the “Force” and “Timeout” parameters using the action window.

Import Registry

Allows for importing a .reg file to the registry of all managed computers in the selected folder(s).

Disable process execution
This action prevents processes with the configured file name from being executed on all managed computers in the selected folder(s). This action can be useful for preventing a program from being run during upgrades or software maintenance.
You are advised to use extreme caution when preventing process execution, since this action affects all users on all managed computers in the selected folder(s) and the execution block will be enforced until explicitly removed using the “Enable Process Execution” action.
It is important to provide the end user who might try to run a disabled process with an explanation that will appear on his/her screen. Using the action’s built in text message capability you can provide such explanation.

Enable Process Execution
This action cancels the “Disable Process Execution” action on all managed computers in the selected folder(s). You may choose to remove all existing execution blocks previously set on all managed computers or configure a specific process name to be unblocked.

Run As
This action allows you to launch a process on all managed computers in the selected folder(s). You can run any executable that is accessible on the managed computer(s). If using a command-line expression or a batch file, please prepend “cmd.exe /c ” to your command.

Note: processes started using this action are executed in session 0 using Local System and are not visible to the users working on the target computer(s). For executing interactive processes, use the “Start Process in Session” action described in the Sessions View chapter.

Hypervisor Folders View Actions

Unlike regular ControlUp folders, there are no actions that can be taken on the hypervisor folders themselves except for viewing related incidents in the Incidents database.
