Chassis Management – VulcanManager
You can add a chassis by pressing the Add button in the main Edit ribbon menu. You will then see the following dialog window:
- Fill in the IP address of the chassis in the Chassis Address field.
- Optionally change the Chassis Port Number value if you connect to the chassis through a NATrouter that changes the port number. The default port value is 22606. If you have changed the portvalue and want to revert to the default value you can press the Reset to Default button.
- Enter the assigned password for the chassis in the Chassis Password field.
- Press the OK button.
The next time you open the Add Chassis window it will remember the last values you entered. If you have changed the port number and need to revert to the default Xena port number just press the Reset to Default button.
EDITING CHASSIS INFORMATION
If you need to modify the address or password details of a chassis, you can select the chassis in the Chassis Explorer and make changes on the panel to the right.
Note that the panel will only be enabled for editing if you have reserved the chassis. Remember to Reboot Chassis after your editing for the changes to take effect.
If you have lost the connection to a chassis, for instance due to a local network connectivity outage, you can manually reconnect it by selecting the chassis in the resource tree view and press the Reconnect button in the ribbon menu.
This action is also available in the right-click context menu for the chassis item in the tree view.
DISCONNECTING FROM CHASSIS
You can forcibly disconnect from a chassis without removing it from your project. This will also prevent VulcanManager from making any attempt to reconnect to the chassis, until you specifically choose to reconnect to that chassis. You can use this option if you have a chassis defined in your configuration that you know will be offline for a longer period of time.
If you no longer need a certain chassis in your project, simply select the chassis and press the Remove Chassis button in the ribbon menu.
