Manage Endpoint Groups
To enable you to easily apply policy, agent action, and agent settings rules to groups of endpoints, you can define virtual groups from the ESM Console. Virtual groups enable you to group endpoints based on static characteristics such as hostname or unique id; or dynamic characteristics such as IP address, range, or subnet. You can also add existing groups to a static virtual group to create a nested virtual group of endpoints.
In addition, you can also search agent logs in the ESM Console by virtual group.
To create a new virtual group:
- Select SettingsAgentVirtual Groups.For each virtual group you define, the ESM Console displays the unique ID, Modification Date, Name and Description, group membership Type (Dynamic or Static), and a listing of the number of workstations, servers, and groups the virtual group Contains.
- Click the action menu and then Add a new group.
- Select the Virtual Group type and
specify the membership characteristics:
- Static—Membership based on existing endpoints (by hostname) or nested endpoint groups (static or dynamic).
- Dynamic—Membership based on endpoint characteristics—such as IPv4 or IPv6 address, range, or subnet.
- Enter a Name and Description to identify and describe the group.
- Define the membership criteria for the Virtual Group
type you selected.For example:
- Save your group.
- After you create your group, use it to:
- Reduce the scope of a policy, agent settings, or agent action rule. To apply a policy to a virtual group specify the group name in the Existing Groups field on the Target Objects tab of the rule.
- View the agent health for endpoints belonging to a virtual group. On the MonitorAgentHealth page, use the Virtual Groups filter to display only endpoints that match the filter criteria.
