You can select to FIX ALL or FIX SELECTED variances. Click REFRESH VIEW to update the list and DONE when finished.

You can click any Instance name to display the instance configuration or Detail page. The appearance of the page depends on whether the instance has been configured:

  • For instances that are not configured, the Detail page displays the options to configure a new instance.
  • For instances that have been configured, the Detail page displays the configured settings and options such status, whether logging is enabled, and the option to recheck variances.

Configure a New Instance
