Navigating through features

My NonStop is accessed from a Browser on your laptop/PC. Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox are supported. You do not need to install any App on your laptop/PC. First securely connect to the URL where My NonStop is listening to.

Logging on to My NonStop


This is the first screen displayed when you connect to the port where your My NonStop (My NS) is installed. Software version number, along with the name of the NonStop Server you are connected to are displayed to the right of the My NonStop logo. To logon:

  • Enter either your Guardian Group.User ID/name, or Alias on the top field. “Remember me” checkbox will remember your user ID/Alias for future.
  • Enter your password in the second field and click on the right arrow or hit either Enter or Return key.
Installing Products

After a successful logon, your first option is to navigate to Store (Store icon). This screen shows a list of all available products from Studio, as well as the latest version of My NonStop which you can install from here.

Following is displayed per product:

  • Company which produced the Product.
  • Product name.
  • Product version.
  • Published Date. Date when the product was published.
  • Install. A click opens the dialogue to configure and install the Product. Use this feature to download and install directly from NonStop Studio. It downloads a PAK (compressed format on HPE NonStop) file, which contains all files needed to install the Product. My NonStop prompts you to select a location where the PPAK should be downloaded to.
  • About. Short product description.
Managing Products

My NonStop shows a list of all Products it currently has installed on your NonStop Server.

Following is displayed per Product:

  • The NonStop Server on which it is installed.
  • Product name.
  • Product version.

Following icons are displayed on the rightmost of each product:

  • Status Detail. Clicking on the icon opens a new window with more details about the product:
    • Status. Whether it is currently running or stopped.
    • Installation Subvol. Volume and Subvolume where the Product was installed.
    • OSS Location where Product was installed.
    • Installed on. Installation date and time.
    • Running Since. Continuously running since date and time.
    • Status of all processes of the product.
  • Start/Stop. Only one of the two is available, depending on whether the Product is currently running/active. This is how you start or stop the Product.
  • Edit. You may change any of the configuration parameters you had entered before. Products (e.g., Web ViewPoint Enterprise) which adhere to RA Studio protocols will be notified of the change in parameter settings. Hence, such Products can accept and incorporate the new changes with no service disruption.
  • Export profile.
  • Available upgrades.
  • Upload. This takes your installation information to Remote Analyst and automatically builds a handbook which it emails you. This handbook may be used by different staff members at your company. Available at no additional cost, this optional feature requires you to register/logon to Remote Analyst.
  • Download handbook.
  • Uninstall. Shows if Product is stopped, this gives you the option of removing all Product files from your NonStop Server. This is useful when you want to remove an earlier version. A single click (and confirmation) is all it takes.
