Associating Policies with a Machine Group


VMware vCenter Protect - Configuration Management enables you to specify exactly which of your organization's policies can be used to manage a particular machine group. By restricting which policies can be used by a machine group you effectively tighten control over your machines. For example, you can associate stricter policies with your most critical machine groups while allowing your less critical machine groups to be managed by less restrictive policies. This is particularly useful for organizations that want to ensure that machines with similar functionality are managed in a uniform, standardized way.
