(OMW) Support Tip: How to connect to a different OMW MS

When the console is started for the first time, the "Connect To Server" dialog box opens where the name of the management server to which you want the console to connect is specified (you can also click "browse" for a list of systems instead of typing the server name).

When the console settings are saved, the name of the management server is also saved. The next time the console is started, the console automatically connects to the management server that is stored in the console settings file.

Note: By default, the OMW server includes one console settings file: %OvDataDir%\bin\HP Operations Manager.msc

The console can be configured to always prompt for the name of the management server as follows:

1. Open the "Console Properties" dialog box (right-click "Operations Manager" and select "Properties")
2. Select the "Misc" tab.
3. Select "Ask for server name on each start".
4. Click "OK" to save the change.

The "Connect To Server" dialog box opens each time a console is started and the name of the management server is prompted.
