Administration group

An administration group is a set of client devices combined on the basis of a specific trait for the purpose of managing the grouped devices as a single unit.

All client devices within a group are configured to do the following:

A client device can be included in only one administration group.

You can create hierarchies with arbitrary nesting depth for Administration Servers and administration groups. A single hierarchy level can include secondary and virtual Administration Servers, groups, and client devices. You can move devices between groups without relocating them physically. For example, if an employee moves from accounting to a developer position, you can move this person's computer from "Accountants" administration group to the "Developers" administration group. Application settings necessary for the developer role are automatically sent to the computer.
