Adding a File Group

File groups simplify the process of administering large numbers of executable, script, and macro files for users. Instead of individually authorizing files, you can logically group files together logically by creating file groups.

  1. In the Management Console, select View > Modules > Exe Explorer > Explorer > Manage File Groups.
    The File Group Management dialog opens.
  2. Click Add File Group.
    The Add File Group dialog opens.
  3. Enter the name of the file group in the File Group field.
  4. Click OK.
    The file group is added to the File Groups list.
  5. Click Close.

The file group is added to the list. You can now assign files to the new file group.

You must grant dedicated accounts such as LocalSystem the right to use the appropriate file groups containing services. For example, if you create a Windows File Group where you place all operating system executable files (including Windows services that run with the LocalSystem account), you should grant LocalSystem the right to use this Windows file group.
