The Rules snap-in displays computer groups, processing rule groups, notification groups, and advanced rule functionality used in one configuration group. You can create or modify computer groups and processing rules using the Rules snap-in. You can create or modify computer attributes, which you can use when creating computer groups. You can also create or modify notification groups, scripts, and data providers, which you can use when creating processing rules.
If you want to create new computer groups and processing rules for several configuration groups, you can add other Microsoft Operations Manager 2000 snap-ins to the MOM Administrator Console.
When you select the Rules item in the left-pane console tree, the details pane displays descriptions of the different windows in the Rules snap-in. Clicking an icon or link in the details pane displays the related window.
