Using the System Tree and Tags

You can organize, group, and tag your managed systems using the System Tree and Tags features. The System Tree is a hierarchical structure that organizes the systems in your network into groups and subgroups.

Adding systems

You can add systems to your System Tree manually using the Product Deployment URL, or using Active Directory synchronization.

Organizing systems

You can organize your System Tree using these methods:

  • Manual organization from the console (drag and drop)
  • Automatic synchronization with your Active Directory

What the System Tree controls

Your System Tree dictates these items:

  • How your policies for different products are inherited
  • How your client tasks are inherited
  • Which groups your systems go into

You can organize your systems dynamically using Active Directory (AD) synchronization.
