Issue/Introduction

 

Resolution

You need to set up all the sites that you require in your organization. You can run a site import rule to automatically collect the site information for your organization from Active Directory. You can also create sites manually and assign the appropriate subnets and site servers to them.

To manage sites

  1.  In the Symantec Management Console, on the Settings menu, click Notification Server > Site Server Settings.
  2.  Do any of the following:
  • Configuring sites and site servers
  1.   In the left pane, click New > Site.
  2.  In the New Site window, in the Name box, type the new site name.
  3.  If you want to assign subnets to the site immediately, specify the appropriate subnets.
  4.  Click OK.
  • Create a new site
  1.  In the left pane, select the site that you want to modify, and then click Configure.
  2. To change the site name, in the Edit Site window, in the Name box, type the new name.
  3. To change the subnets that are assigned to the site, specify the appropriate subnets.
  4. Click OK.

 

  • Modify a site
  1. In the left pane, select the site that you want to modify, and then click Configure.
  2. To change the site name, in the Edit Site window, in the Name box, type the new name.
  3. To change the subnets that are assigned to the site, specify the appropriate subnets.
  4. Click OK
  • Delete a site 

​​In the left pane, select the site that you want to delete, and then click Del.

Any subnets that are assigned to the site are not deleted. They become unassigned and may be assigned to a different site. Any site servers inside the affected subnets are not used until they are assigned to a different site. 

  • Remove a manually assigned site server from a site

In the left pane, under the site server, select the site that you want to remove, and then click Del.

The site server is not affected, and it continues to serve any other sites to which it is assigned. This option applies only to the site servers that are manually assigned to sites. A site server that belongs to a site through its subnet membership cannot be removed from that site.

  • Remove a subnet from a site 

​​In the left pane, under the site, select the subnet that you want to delete, and then click Del.

Deleting a subnet makes the subnet unassigned to any site. Any encompassed subnets that are not manually assigned to a site also become unassigned. Any site servers on the subnet, or the encompassed subnets, no longer serve the site. However, they continue to serve any sites to which they are manually assigned.​

  • Manage manually assigned agents 

​​You can assign agents to a site and remove any that you no longer require​
