Searching for Machines in the Top Pane

You can easily search for machines contained in the top pane. All searches are performed using the Search tool.

To initiate a search you type the machine name you want to find and then press Enter or click the search icon (). Only those machines matching the search criteria are displayed; all other machines are hidden.

Tips for Using the Search Tool

The Search tool works only on the information currently visible in the top pane.

If a Smart Filter is applied, only machines matching BOTH the search criteria and the smart filter criteria are displayed.

All partial matches are displayed. For example, if you search for machines named Test, any machine with "test" in its name will be considered a match (e.g. TestMachine1, Contest, etc.).

A semicolon (;) can be used to concatenate multiple search terms into one search string. For example, specifying "server;workstation" will return all items containing either of the two terms.

The use of wildcards in the Search tool is not allowed.
