Select a Server/PC node from the network tree.
Click with the right mouse button.
If the Server/PC is the local Server/PC select Local Computer Optical Drives Diagnostics Scan.
If theServer/PC is a network Server/PC select Current Computer Optical Drives Diagnostics Scan.
A process begins of scanning the target Server/PC for WMI data.
This data is granular diagnostic data for each sensor type.
Once target node has been retrived a 3D version is populated with color coded status sensors.
Green signifies that the component is OK.
Yellow shows a component is in a warning state.
Red indicates an error in the target component.
Click on the cd disk and detailed data will appear in the status box.
Note that WMI does not always return data as to the status of a drive, so in some instances components will not have status available and may show a Warning...
By default WMI returns some data about the status of various messages.
This is generally the main message about the state of the drive. The usual state is OK. This means the drive is working as expected.
Quite often you will find no message returned by a sensor. This is nothing usually to worry about.
In some cases, for various reasons the component just doesnt produce a message.
The OK message will produce a Green color for the drive.
The drive has produced an error, indicated by red.
The drive has been degraded, indicated by red.
The status of thedrive is unknown, indicated by yellow.
This doesnt mean a failure, just that the status is unknown of the drive.
The drive is predicted to fail, indicated by red.
The drive is starting, indicated by green.
The drive is stopping, indicated by yellow.
The service message is indicated by green.
The drive is stressed, indicated by red.
The drive is non recoverable, indicated by red.
