Simple Search

Use

You can use the Simple Search to display the problem messages recorded in the internal MaxDB program PTS, together with the available information for them. You can restrict the search result by entering suitable freely definable search terms.

The search is performed for the message texts and keywords but not for the message data.

The system displays a maximum of 25 results.

Input Rules

You can enter any combination of letters and numbers. However, you must adhere to the following input rules when doing so:

·        Place search strings that consist of several words in quotation marks (such as: “backup history”)

·        Place search strings that begin with a minus sign in quotation marks (such as: “-8000”).

·        To exclude problem messages from the result list, start the search string with a minus sign as a negation operator (such as: -logging, -"-8000", -"backup history").

Procedure

Choose Simple Search.

...

       1.      Enter search strings in accordance with the above input rules.

       2.      Choose the rule that is to be used for the search:

All Words

Every message in the result list is to contain all of the entered search strings.

Any Word

Every message in the result list is to contain at least one of the entered search strings.

Exact Phrase

Every message in the result list is to contain exactly the entered search string.

       3.      If you want to reset your entries, choose Clear.

When you want to start the search, choose Search.

A negation operator before a search string is most useful in combination with the All Words search rule, as you restrict the result table in this way.

On the other hand, a negation operator before a search string in combination with the search rule Any Words significantly increases the size of the result list.
