Configuring Maps

May 26, 2015

Maps are logical containers that either graphically represent a group of discovered Citrix devices, or represent a group of devices configured as a NetScaler pool and are considered a single logical unit. When adding a map, you need to select the devices you want to grouped under that map. After adding a map, you can perform operations on a map, such as adding submaps and modifying maps. You can also perform operations on all the devices in a map, such as configuring audit and running reports.

This topic includes the following details:

Adding Maps

Maps are logical containers that either graphically represent a group of discovered Citrix devices considered a single logical unit. You can either add a map and group devices under it logically, such as based on features configured on your devices.

To add maps

  1. On the Citrix Network tab, in the left pane, expand Device Inventory, and click Maps.
  2. In the right pane, click Add.
  3. Under Add Map, in Name, type the name that you want to use for the new map.
  4. In Description, type a brief description of the new map. Note that this step is optional.
  5. Click Add to view the devices available and then click the the + icon next to the devices you want to add to the map and then click Create.

Modifying Maps

You may want to modify a map if the device login credentials or SNMP version details on your devices have changed. You can also modify a map to add more devices to that map, or remove existing devices from the map.

To modify maps

  1. On the Citrix Network tab, in the left pane, expand Device Inventory, and click Maps.
  2. In the right pane, click the map you want to modify, and then click Modify at the bottom of the right pane.
  3. Under Modify Map, make the required changes, and then click OK.

Deleting Maps

You can delete an existing map from the network using the delete map feature.

To remove a map

  1. On the Citrix Network tab, in the left pane, expand Device Inventory, and click Maps.
  2. In the right pane, click the map you want to delete, and then click Delete at the bottom of the right pane.
  3. In the confirmation dialog box, click Yes. The map is deleted.

Performing Operations on Maps

After you have grouped devices by adding maps, you can perform a set of operations on all the devices grouped under a specific map, such as run reports and execute tasks.

To perform operations on maps

  1. On the Citrix Network tab, in the left pane, expand Device Inventory, and click Maps. Click the map name on which you want to perform an operation.
  2. In the right pane, click a map on which you want to perform an operation. You can do the following.
    • Modify: Modify the map to add or remove devices, or if the device login credentials and SNMP version details have changed. You cannot modify a pool.
    • Run Report: Run a custom report on all the devices in a map or a pool to troubleshoot or analyze the behavior of the devices.
    • Execute Task: Execute a built-in or custom task on all the devices in a map or a pool.
    • Config Audit: Run configuration audits on all the devices in a map or a pool to monitor configuration changes across the devices.
    • Rediscover: Rediscover all the devices in a map.
    • Delete: Delete all the devices from the map.
