Using the Main Page
When you logon to the Network Registration System, you are first presented with a list of machines that you have registered. You can select whether to view machines for you or for a group that you administer. From this page you can, view or edit machines already registered or register new machines.
You can also sort the lists or search for machines that match certain criteria (see Searching Machines).
You can always return to the Main page by clicking on [Main] at the top of any page in the system.
At the top of the page is a line that begins "Registered machines for:" If you have access to view or administrate machine registrations for another user, this line will be followed by a drop-down list of the groups or users that you have access to adminstrate.
To view the machines for a user or group, select the user ID or group name from the drop-down list, then click on the Refresh button.
The first table on the Main page is a list of machines registered for you or for the group selected at the top of the page. For each machine, the following are listed:
Editing a Machine
Registering a Machine
When you login to the Network Registration System, a "cookie" is used to identify you to the server for a period of time. If you are using a computer that is used by others (such as a machine in a computing cluster) logging off will not destroy the cookie, and so another user may be able to view and edit your registration information for a short period of time after you have logged off.
To avoid the potential for this problem, click on the [Signoff] link to destroy the cookie on the computer you are using.
