Creating provisioning groups

You can create groups of provisioning templates for use in provisioning tasks. You can use provisioning groups to organize your templates in ways to suit your needs. For example, you could create groups based on specific vendors, and additional subgroups based on server models. Later, if you want to modify one of the templates in the group, you only need to remove the template from the group and re-add it to the group in its modified state. You can create subgroups up to six layers deep.

To create a group of templates
  1. Click Tools > Distribution > OS Deployment.
  2. Select Public or My templates.
  3. Click the Create a template group button on the toolbar.
  4. Type a name for the group in the Group name box.
  5. Type a description in the Group description box.
  6. Click OK.
To delete a group
  1. Select a group, and click the Delete button on the toolbar.
  2. Click Yes, and then confirm that you want to delete the group.

NOTE: A group can be deleted even if it is not empty. Make sure than any subgroups or templates in the group can be deleted before you confirm the deletion.
