Assigning Hosts to Groups

It is possible to divide the managed hosts into groups using the following methods:

  • Assign the hosts to groups automatically (Hosts → Auto assign)

  • Specify the default groups in the ICB (Initial Configuration Block) that will be distributed to each host during the initial deployment of Management Agents (Hosts → Manage ICBs)

    In case you are updating Management Agents to a known group of hosts, you may define a specific ICB containing the predefined grouping for these hosts in the management system. See Creating ICBs.

  • Assign the hosts to groups manually (Hosts → Manual grouping)

    This is viable if the amount of hosts is small and there is no possibility to use the alternative methods described above.
