X Manager for Domains - Initial Startup

Use this procedure to get started with X Manager for Domains running on a Windows system. See X Manager - Initial Startup if you run in standalone mode (which is the default).

Note: This procedure assumes that a Reflection X Advantage domain has already been setup by an administrator. For information about setting up a domain, see Reflection X Advantage Domain Administration.

Before you begin

  • Obtain your Reflection X Advantage domain name and logon credentials from your administrator. (In most cases your username and password are the same as those you use to log onto the system running X Manager for Domains.)
  • Install X Manager for Domains. (This is not installed by default when you install Reflection X Advantage.)

To start X Manager for Domains and import templates and migrated settings

  1. Start X Manager for Domains. (On Windows, go to Start > All Programs > Attachmate Reflection > X Manager for Domains.)
  2. In the domain logon dialog box:
    • For User name and Password, enter your logon credentials (either the username and password you use to start your system, or the credentials provided by the Reflection X Advantage administrator.)
    • For Domain, enter the domain name you received from your administrator. (After your first successful logon, this name is entered automatically for you.)
  3. Depending on how your domain is configured, you may see the Import Migrated Settings and Templates dialog box. If you see this dialog box, you can use it to select optional sample settings for import. Do one of the following:
    • Select the settings you want to import and click Import. This imports the selected settings plus any available default definitions.
    • Click Cancel. When you cancel, Reflection X Advantage does not import any of the listed settings, but does import the default definitions.

When X Manager for Domains opens, the list of settings available under My Definitions may include any of the following:

  • Default definitions that were imported automatically.
  • Custom definitions that were imported automatically. (These can be configured in templates created by an administrator and added to a customized installer.)
  • Connection settings and migrated definitions that you selected in the Import Migrated Settings and Templates dialog box.
  • Public definitions that have been created and shared by your administrator. These definitions are read-only and are identified with a different icon.
