MetaConsole Client User’s Guide for Canon Devices
Overview
A management console is a single tool used to manage entire networks. It is a framework
within which device- or service-specific management modules can share a user interface,
alarm monitoring, and other basic functions. Popular management consoles include
Microsoft Management Console (MMC), HP OpenView, Tivoli Enterprise, and CA
Unicenter.
MetaConsole technology enables development of a single client module that works with
multiple management consoles and multiple network protocols on multiple platforms.
This guide describes how the MetaConsole client manages Canon devices for CA
Unicenter NSM.
MetaConsole Documentation
For any type of device you want to manage using MetaConsole, there are two relevant
documents in the suite of MetaConsole documentation:
•
A getting started guide describing MetaConsole’s components and explaining the
requirements, installation steps, and other details specific to the management
environment
•
A client user’s guide describing how the MetaConsole client manages the
particular type of device
You are reading the client user’s guide for Canon devices. Chapter 1 introduces the
client, and Chapters 2 and 3 contain instructions for using the client to manage the
complete line of Canon imageRUNNER, imageCLASS and CLBP 460 PS devices.
1
MetaConsole Client for Canon Devices
Chapter 1.
About the Client
The MetaConsole client provides device management for the complete line of
imageRUNNER, imageCLASS and the CLBP 460 PS devices. Its main functions are:

Chapter 2.
Configuring the Client
This chapter presents procedures for configuring the client’s behavior regarding Canon
devices managed through a particular MetaConsole server. For information on higherlevel configuration — configuration of MetaConsole servers generally and of a particular
MetaConsole server’s treatment of all devices — see the MetaConsole for Unicenter 3.0
Getting Started for Canon Guide.
At this level, you can configure
•
Device discovery
•
The events that trigger alarms
•
Rates and timeouts
The Canon service provider’s configuration settings are maintained by the MetaConsole
server and are not client specific. All clients use the same values; if any client changes a
particular setting, the change affects all clients that use that setting.
Specifying IP Address Ranges to Include in Device Discovery
For each MetaConsole server, you specify ranges of IP addresses for automatic device
discovery.
To add a range of IP addresses for device discovery:
1. In the navigation pane, expand the Canon Devices node and the Configuration
node, and click Discovery Ranges.
2. Under Add New Discovery Range, in the Start Address boxes, type the lowest IP
address in the desired range.
3. In the End Address boxes, type the highest IP address in the desired range.
4. Click Add.
To remove a range of IP addresses:
1. In the navigation pane, expand the Canon Devices node and the Configuration
node, and click Discovery Ranges.
2. Under Auto Discovery Range List, click the start address or end address of the
range to be removed.
3. Click Remove.
4
MetaConsole Client for Canon Devices
Specifying IP Address Ranges to Exclude from Device Discovery
If a range of addresses is not specified as described above under Specifying IP Address
Ranges to Include in Device Discovery, MetaConsole does not discover devices with IP
addresses in that range. So in general, it is not necessary to explicitly exclude a range of
addresses. However, excluding a range can be useful. For example, if you want
MetaConsole to discover devices between 10.0.0.40 and 10.0.0.80 except for 10.0.0.52
through 10.0.0.56, you can include the large range but exclude the small range.
To exclude a range of addresses from device discovery:
1. In the navigation pane, expand the Canon Devices node and the Configuration
node, and click Blocked Ranges.
2. Under Add New Blocked Range, in the Start Address boxes, type the lowest IP
address in the desired range.
3. In the End Address boxes, type the highest IP address in the desired range.
4. Click Add.
To remove a range from the list of excluded ranges:
1. In the navigation pane, expand the Canon Devices node and the Configuration
node, and click Blocked Ranges.
2. Under Blocked Discovery Range List, click the start address or end address of the
range to be removed.
3. Click Remove.
Manually Adding or Removing Individual Devices
In addition to specifying address ranges for automatic device discovery, you can
manually add addresses to the list of discovered devices.
To manually add a device to the device list:
1. In the navigation pane, expand the Canon Devices node and the Configuration
node, and click Manual Discovery.
2. In the Device Address boxes, type the device’s IP address.
3. Click Add.
To delete a manually added device from the device list:
1. In the navigation pane, expand the Canon Devices node and the Configuration
node, and click Manual Discovery.
2. Under Manual Device List, click the IP address you want to delete.
3. Click Remove.
To delete all manually added devices from the device list:
1. In the navigation pane, expand the Canon Devices node and the Configuration
node, and click Manual Discovery.
2. Click Remove All.
5
MetaConsole Client for Canon Devices
Specifying Events to Raise Alarms
MetaConsole enables you to select events that will result in alarms. An event is just a
