Notes on Browsers

This section discusses some browser issues you should be aware of when using the Zmanda Management Console.

The Browser "Remember Input" Option

Most browsers have an option to "remember" what is entered in forms. In Firefox, this is set in the Preferences->Privacy tab. Turning this option on can result in fields being pre-filled with incorrect parameters, as the browser merely remembers the ZMC page and knows nothing about Backup Sets and other ZMC input.

Page Refresh Considerations

When refreshing a page after a POST operation, most browsers display a dialog asking if you want to repeat the operation. Avoid reposting form data when using ZMC. Re-posting form data can result in undesired consequences.
