    Pretty sure the mapping of System Administration Guide is bad. Should it point to the Administrating the CA IDMS Database Page?

    The Messages link is invalid. You get a page not found.

    Hi Stephen,

    We apologize for the inconvenience.  There are a few messages links. Can you clarify which message link you are trying to reach?  

    Thank you,

      Hi Pam - it was the "Messages and Codes Guide—Volumes 1-4" one but it looks like it has been fixed. It wasn't working earlier in the week and earlier today.

    I'm glad to hear the issue is resolved.

    Should not need this index if your manual categories made sense, which they do not. This online manual system is the worst I have dealt with in over 30 years. Paper manual were better than this.
