Could anyone please help me in understanding the point below. This i found when going through the FOS Admin guide.
FFFFFA : Management server's well known address — The management server provides a single point for managing the fabric. This is the only service that users can configure.
What does this mean "This is the only service that users can configure." and what happens if we configure.....???????
Many thanks in advance,

Also from the FOS Admin guide (7.0.0):
"A client of the management server can find basic information about the switches in the fabric and
use this information to construct topology relationships. The management server also allows you to
obtain certain switch attributes and, in some cases, modify them. For example, logical names
identifying switches can be registered with the management server."
More information is available in the FOS Admin guide in the section "Management Server".

In short, there are several commands related to configuration of the management server. If you run 'help | grep -i "management server" on your switch you should see a listing similar to this:
brodcx:admin> help | grep -i "management server"
mscapabilityshow Display Management Server Capability.
msconfigure Configure Management Server
msplatshow Display the Management Server Platform Database
msplatshowdbcb Display the Management Server Database Control
msplcleardb Clear the Management Server Platform Database
msplmgmtactivate Activate the Management Server Platform Database
msplmgmtdeactivate Deactivate the Management Server Platform Database
mstddisable Disables the Management Server Topology Discovery
mstdenable Enables the Management Server Topology Discovery
mstdreadconfig Display status of Management Server Topology
Running a 'help msconfigure' should be a good intro to the possibilities, but the Admin Guide will also have a lot of information.
