The following procedure shows you how to specify the method in which to assign a managed Windows Mobile device to a group. In Mobile Device Manager (MDM) software distribution, you can assign managed devices to device groups by using server-side targeting or client-side targeting. With server-side targeting, you use MDM Software Distribution Console to move managed devices to one device group at a time. With client-side targeting, you can use Group Policy so that managed devices will add themselves automatically to the device groups.
|Regardless of the method that you use to assign managed devices to groups, you must first create the groups by using MDM Software Distribution Console. For more information, see Creating a Device Group.|
