Creating administration groups

Initially, the hierarchy of administration groups contains the only administration group named Managed devices. When creating a hierarchy of administration groups, you can add devices and virtual machines to the Managed devices group and add subgroups. For each administration group, the properties window contains information about policies, tasks, and devices related to the group.

To create an administration group:

  1. In the main menu, go to Assets (Devices)Hierarchy of groups.
  2. Select the check box next to the administration group for which you want to create a new subgroup.
  3. Click the Add button.
  4. Type a name for the new administration group.
  5. Click the Add button.

A new administration group with the specified name appears in the administration group hierarchy.

The application allows creation of a hierarchy of administration groups based on the structure of Active Directory or on the structure of the domain network. Also, you can create a structure of groups from a text file.

To create a structure of administration groups:

  1. In the main menu, go to Assets (Devices)Hierarchy of groups.
  2. Click the Import button.

The New administration group structure wizard starts. Follow the instructions of the wizard.
