What Happens Next

Next steps are dependent upon the final interaction taken on the issue:

  • If the issue was removed, it will be removed from the Activity Monitor immediately and will remain removed from the Monitor the entire time the Local Network Status screen is being viewed. If the device is down when the screen is accessed in the future, the issue will be displayed in the Activity Monitor again. Removing an issue from the Activity Monitor will not result in the issue being remedied. As soon as the device comes online, the issue will no longer appear in the Activity Monitor.
  • If the device was accessed, the Device Details screen for the desired device will be displayed. Complete further interactions on the Device Details screen, as necessary.

Most issues with the local network can easily be remedied through a variety of troubleshooting techniques, including device reboots or launching Rescue Kernel for the device. If issues persist, please contact Support for additional assistance.
