You use the tool bar buttons across the top of the All Hosts view to perform individual tasks against one or more managed host systems. If the tool bar buttons are not active, it might be due to
If you select multiple hosts, they all must be in the same state (added, profiled, or joined) to perform the desired task. If they are not all in the same state, the tool bar button for that task will be disabled.
For example, if you select all hosts, but one or more of them are not profiled, the Install Software tool bar button will not be available for the whole group. If you deselect the hosts that are not profiled, the Install Software tool bar button becomes active. Also, if one of the selected hosts is currently being profiled by auto-profile, the web services, or by another console user, the Profile button will be disabled. You can either wait for the profile task to complete, or deselect the host to activate the Profile button.
Another reason for a disabled tool bar button might be your user account role. You may only have read-only access to the view and are not allowed to perform the desired task. For example, if your user account is not in the Manage Hosts role, then you cannot make changes to hosts.
Other tasks, such as Clear column filters have nothing to do with host state or user roles. That tool bar button is only enabled if you have column filters set. If there are no column filters set, then the option to Clear column filters is disabled. When one or more filters are set, then the option is enabled.
