Problem(Abstract)

Use this reference to learn about functions that are limited or not supported by the Administration Center interface.

Resolving the problem

However, some functions are limited or not supported in the Administration Center in Versions 5.4 and later, or in Versions 6.1, 6.2, and 6.3.
