Administration Menu Explained (Cortex series)


The Administration menu gives access to critical controls that, if misused, could cause loss of communications with the Cortex, and require a trip to the remote site to fix.

User-rights apply to some of the following commands. You must be logged-on as a Supervisor or higher to see these menu options.

1 – TAKE CONTROL: Allows a user with the proper access rights to take control away from another user.

2 – UPDATE CERTIFICATE: Regenerate the unit’s HTTPS certificate. Might be required in some situations where a unit’s IP address is changed.
