Auto-Grouping

The Auto-Grouping submodule consists following subsections:

  • Auto Add Client setting
  • Client(s) list excluded from Auto adding under Managed Group(s)
  • Group and Client selection criteria for Auto adding under Managed Group(s)


Auto Add Client setting

Selecting the checkbox Auto adding client(s) under Managed Group(s) enables automatic adding computers under Managed group(s) after manual installation of eScan client.


Client(s) list excluded from Auto adding under Managed Group(s)

Adding a client in this list ensures that it does not auto add itself again after you remove it from the Managed computer(s).

 

Group and Client selection criteria for Auto adding under Managed Group(s)

This section lets you define/create groups with client criteria for auto adding under managed group(s). You can add a list of clients under a particular group name here and then add it under the exclusion list if required.

 

Excluding clients from auto adding under Managed Group(s)

To exclude clients from auto adding under managed group(s), follow the steps given below:

  1. Enter either the host name, host name with wildcard, IP address or IP address range.
  2. Click Add.
     The computer will be displayed in the list below.

 

Removing clients from the excluded list

  1. Select the computer you want to remove.
  2. Click Remove.
     The computer will be removed from the list.

 

Group and Client selection criteria for Auto adding under Managed Group(s)

This feature can be used to automate the process of adding computers/clients under a particular group. This process is manually done under unmanaged computers.


Defining a group and client selection criteria for auto adding under managed computer(s)

To define group and client selection criteria for auto adding under managed groups(s), follow the steps given below:

  1. Under the Group Name, enter the group’s name and click Add.
     OR

Click Browse and select the group from the existing list.

 

<tbody> </tbody>

  1. Select the group for which you want to define the criteria.
  2. Under the Client Criteria, enter either Hostname, Hostname with wildcard, IP address or IP address range and click Add.
     
    The clients displayed in the list will be added under the selected group.
  3. Click Save.
