Controlling a Controller Using Screen Sharing

You can use the screen sharing feature of Mac OS X v10.5 or later to view and control
the screen of a SAN controller over the network.

To connect to a controller using screen sharing:


In Xsan Admin, select Computers in the SAN Assets list.


Select the controller you want to observe or control.


Choose “Connect using Screen Sharing” from the Action (gear) pop-up menu.

If you have trouble sharing the screen of a remote computer, check the Sharing pane
of System Preferences on the remote computer and make sure Remote Management
service is turned on. If the computer is running Mac OS X Server, make sure that
remote management is enabled in the General Settings pane of Server Admin.
