Adding equipment to the floor layout
Prerequisite: Select Planning>Data Center in the Application bar and select to view a room in Floor Layout (by double-clicking the room that you want to add equipment to in Navigation).
- Drag the component icon into the position in the floor layout that matches its position in the data center:
- To add new equipment, drag it from the Genomes pane.
- To add existing equipment from another position in the data center infrastructure, drag it from the Navigation pane.
When you drag equipment into a selected room, green highlights where it can be placed; red highlights where it cannot.
- Right-click the component icon and select Properties, for example to define a custom name for it, or to use other menu options.
Repeat steps 1 and 2 to add all floor equipment to the floor layout.
You can move multiple items at the same time by using Ctrl-click or Shift-click.
You can switch to Planning>Device Association to associate the components added to the layout with devices monitored by the Data Center Expert or other external system to get live data from the devices in operation.
