Icon Legend

Icons are used throughout K2's user interface to indicate a particular type of item, and also to indicate further properties or state of the item.

Often an icon is used by the interface as a handle for dragging an item or as a target for a drag-and-drop action. The table below may be helpful in deciphering the meaning of these icons.

Computers Window

Computers view toggle

Located at the top of the thumb/slider between the two main areas of the computers window, clicking here will toggle between the current and the default view (Dedicated + Leased Computers, no leased or excluded, no divisions or filters applied). Clicking again returns to the current view.

Client — Dedicated

Click to the left of this icon to have the main window display include dedicated computers. Such computers have a KeyServer license and will never have their KeyServer license automatically revoked. Doubleclick on the word Dedicated to display all current dedicated clients in a separate window.

Also appears in the Filters' Rule column when a rule has been set to grant clients full privileges. Double click the rule to change.

In the Last Session column, this icon indicates a given computer is currently designated as Dedicated. Drag a computer onto a different Login type to change.

Client — Leased

Click to the left of this icon to have the main window display include leased computers. Such computers have a KeyServer license which will automatically be revoked if they do not log in to KeyServer for a long time. Doubleclick on the word Leased to display all current basic clients in a separate window.

Also appears in the Filters' Rule column when a rule has been set to grant clients leased privileges. Double click the rule to change.

In the Last Session column, this icon indicates a given computer is currently designated as Leased. Drag a computer onto a different Login type to change.

Client — Dormant

Click to the left of this icon to have the main window display include dormant computers. Such computers do not currently have a KeyServer license, but if they log back in they will be given a seat as long as there is room, and changed to Leased. Doubleclick on the word Dormant to display all current basic clients in a separate window.

In the Last Session column, this icon indicates a given computer is currently designated as Dormant. Drag a computer onto a different Login type to change.

Client — Excluded

Click to the left of this icon to have the main window display include excluded (logon disallowed) computers. Doubleclick on the word Excluded to display all currently blocked computers in a separate window.

Also appears in the Filters' Rule column when a rule has been set to exclude clients. Double click the rule to change.

Displays in the Last Session column when a given computer has been forbidden access to the KeyServer, either by a system setting or manually by the administrator. When computers display this icon an attempt to log on by anyone at that computer will fail with message KA-200, "The KeyServer [name] has denied [username] permission to logon." Launching a managed program will get a similar denial, with a different message, KA-180: "The network KeyServer, which is required by KeyServer controlled programs, has denied [username] permission to logon."

Note that the message claims that the refusal is username-based when in fact it could be either user (authentication) or computer-based, depending.

Drag the computer record and drop it on the word Dedicated or Dormant in the upper left of the window to re-enable this computer's access to the KeyServer. If this does not remove the circle-slash icon (change the record to allow access to the KeyServer), it may be that the KeyServer itself is full or the client computer has been prohibited for a computer-based (invalid TCP/IP Location or KeyAccess Version Number) or user-based (Authentication failure) reason.

Section

Draggable item indicating a Section (Administrative concept for Federated Management). Division can be organized into Sections, and Admins can be assigned to Sections. Purchases and Policies can also be specific to a Section, or can be Enterprise wide.

Appears in the Division portion of the Computers Window, on the left hand side. Also appears in Policy and Purchase detail windows.

Section - out of scope

This variation of the Section icon appears when the logged in Admin doesn't have Access rights to a Section. For example, a Section Admin would generally only have rights to a single Section, and all other Sections would appear with this icon.

Appears in the Division portion of the Computers Window, on the left hand side.

Division

Draggable item indicating a division (means of subdividing computers into discrete categories). Drag a computer onto a division to associate the computer with that division. A given computer is not required to be in a division, but if associated with a division is associated with that division alone. Drag a computer from one divison to another to change its association, or drag it onto Uncategorized to remove its divisional association.

Appears in the Filters Rule column when a Filter has been set to associate computers with a division.

Division — Pink

Draggable item indicating that the division contains at least one computer that was placed in that division by a Rule.

Division — Dimmed

Appears in the Filters' Rule column when an Active Filter has not been set to associate a computer with any division. A computer using a rule with this icon will be placed in Uncategorized.

Anchored

Can appear in the Division column of the Computers window, indicating that this Computer is Anchored and will not be moved to a different Division by Rules.

Filter

Contains a set of rules used to limit display the window's contents to a specified subset. Click to the left of the filter to apply, or doubleclick to display the results in a new window. Double click the filter to modify it, or rightclick in this column's whitespace and select New Filter to create a new one. Place a checkmark in either of the Program Filter Dialog's Rule area to turn this to an Active filter, one that can be used to pre-sort newly discovered items.

Filter with an Active Rule

A filter that has had one or more rules attached to by means of the Rule area of the Computer Filter dialog, and which applies those rules to newly discovered Computers. Click to the left of the icon to apply the filter. Double click the filter to modify it. Rightclick in the surrounding whitespace to define a new filter. Turn an Active Filter back into a simple filter by doubleclicking, unchecking both Rule checkboxes, and saving.

Also appears in the Folder column of the main Programs window to indicate an unacknowledged program.

Appears in the Filters' Rule column when an Active Filter has been set to pass along the default login type, and the default is set to Dedicated. Changing the default value for the Discovered filter will change all filters displaying this icon.

Client — Leased — Dimmed
