About Storage

Storage offers a File Explorer-like interface to NonStop disks & files, with various features and commands. Two viewing options of Guardian and OSS (Open System Services) are available:

OSS (Open System Services) File level commands

The OSS subsystem offers a File Explorer-like interface to the OSS file system, in a Root-Fileset folder format. This feature is available and is visible only on NonStop systems that have OSS installed. Clicking on the File set Report icon displays a report of file sets configured on the NonStop system, on the right-hand side of the screen. The Root folder icon provides means to traverse the OSS file system in a File Explorer-like fashion. The left side of the screen displays the directory tree structure, and the right side displays the directory contents.

  • Using the directory contents view. The right-hand side of the screen displays the list and basic details of files and directories present in the selected directory. The top status bar indicates the currently selected directory and the count of files/directories present. The list can be sorted in ascending or descending order by clicking on the corresponding column heading. Clicking on a directory name will cause the respective directory to be opened and the existing directory content display will get replaced. Clicking on the file name and selecting Properties opens a new Window and displays detail file information. Clicking on the file name (except directories) or the icon will reveal a popup list of commands available for that file. These commands are:
    • File Commands:
      • Properties: Opens a new Window and displays detail file information.
      • Open: Opens the file for editing. This command is not available for directories.
