How to Create a Network Device Group

Network Device groups, which are collections of network devices, help organize your devices in ways that make sense for your organization. You can also use them for filtering in reports.

To create a network device group:

  1. From the Network Devices panel, select File > New Group > Network Device.
    If Network Device is dimmed when you point to New Group, select Network Devices in the left pane of the panel and try again.  
  2. In the New Network Device Group dialog box, enter the name of the new group and select OK.

The new group appears in the Network Devices panel, below the Deleted devices folder. If you selected an existing user-added group before opening the New Network Device Group dialog box, the new group is created as a subgroup of the selected group. You can also create a group by right-clicking Network Devices (at the top of the tree) or on an existing network devices group, then selecting New Group.

To add network devices to this group:

  • Select the network devices in the right pane and drag them to the group in the left pane.

  • Right-click a machine in the Network Devices Properties dialog box, then in the Member Of tab, select Add.
