Creating Computer Groups

You can create groups of computers and execute tasks simultaneously on all of the computers in the group. You can group computers by organizational departments, machine types, operating systems, specific installed software, or other criteria. A computer can belong to one or more computer groups.

There are several ways in which you can create computer groups.

You can also link to an external group of computers created outside of CCM. By creating a link to an external group, you do not need to recreate the same group of computers inside CCM. You assign jobs to external groups the same way that you assign jobs to a group created inside of CCM.
