Graphical User Interfaces for Retrying LAN NetView Fix Event Registration
/ Deregistration

      Disclosed are two separate Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs)
which allows remote policy registration or deregistration failures to
be retried.

      Remote policies specify the set of notifications that the Fix
program requests managed workstations to send to the managing
workstation where the Fix program is installed.  Remote policies are
associated with management collections; that is, a separate remote
policy must be set up for each management collection in order for the
systems in that management collection to send their notifications to
the Fix program.  A management collection is a group of workstations
that are to be managed.  The user can add/delete workstations to/from
the management collection, as desired.

This disclosure addresses the following GUIs:

o   The registration GUI will allow the user to:

    -   See the notifications for which event registration was
        unsuccessful.

    -   Retry the event registration operation for selected
        notifications.

o   The deregistration GUI will allow the user to:

    -   See the notifications for which event deregistration was
        unsuccessful.

    -   Retry the event deregistration operation for selected
        notifications.

    -   Delete selected notifications from the retry deregistration
        list.

      Note that the Retry Registration and Retry Deregistration GUIs
only apply to remote policies.

The Retry windows contain the following fields and push buttons:

o   Management collection
    Specifies the name of the management collection for which
    registration or deregistration is to be retried.

o   System
    Specifies the name of the managed system for which registration
    or deregistration was unsuccessful.

o   Resource Clas...
