Moving administration groups

ID 4616

You can move nested administration groups within the groups hierarchy.

An administration group is moved together with all nested groups, secondary Administration Servers, devices, group policies, and tasks. The system will apply to the group all the settings that correspond to its new position in the hierarchy of administration groups.

The name of the group must be unique within one level of the hierarchy. If a group with the same name already exists in the folder into which you move the administration group, you should change the name of the latter. If you have not changed the name of the moved group, an index in (<next sequence number>) format is automatically added to its name when it is moved, for example: (1), (2).

You cannot rename the Managed devices group because it is a built-in element of Administration Console.

To move a group to another folder in the console tree:

  1. Select a group to move in the console tree.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Move the group by using the context menu:
      1. Select Cut from the context menu of the group.
      2. Select Paste from the context menu of the administration group to which you want to move the selected group.
    • Move the group using the main application menu:
      1. In the main menu, select ActionCut.
      2. Select the administration group to which you have to move the selected group in the console tree.
      3. In the main menu, select ActionPaste.
    • Move the group to another in the console tree using the mouse.
