Creating a Foreign Machine Group

The machine group feature is very useful when it comes to managing machines of different language types. It allows you to create a custom selection of machines for scanning and patching.

To create a group, from the main menu select New > Machine Group and type a name and description for the new group. For example:


Now add some machines to the group. You can do this in a number of ways. You can enter machine names and IP addresses directly, or you can select them from the Network Neighborhood by choosing the Browse Network option.


You can now scan this group for missing patches, download any missing patches and deploy them as normal.
