Creating a Computer Group

Computer groups define sets of computers with something in common, such as a computer group of all computers with Microsoft SQL Server installed. You can associate computer groups with processing rule groups so that the rules apply to all computers in the group.

Computer groups are updated at the next Managed Computer scan.

To create a computer group:

  1. Expand Microsoft Operations Manager (default) in the left pane.
  2. Expand Rules in the left pane.
  3. Click Computer Groups in the left pane.
  4. Click Action on the menu bar.
  5. Click Create Computer Group on the Action menu.
  6. Follow the instructions until you have finished creating a new computer group and associating it with processing rule groups. For more information about the fields on a window, click Help.
