Creating and populating System Tree groups

To help you visualize your managed systems by geographic or machine-type values, create System Tree groups and populate the groups with systems.

Tip: Best practice: Drag selected systems to any group in the System Tree to populate groups. Drag and drop to move groups and subgroups in the System Tree.

There is no single way to organize a System Tree. Because every network is different, your System Tree organization can be as unique as your network layout. You can use more than one method of organization.

For example, if you use Active Directory in your network, consider importing your Active Directory containers rather than your NT domains. If your Active Directory or NT domain organization does not make sense for security management, you can create your System Tree in a text file and import it. If you have a smaller network, you can create your System Tree by hand and add each system manually.
