Adding a Setting for Servers and Server Groups

You can add an additional setting to servers and server groups from the Command Center. You can select multiple servers and server groups to add the setting to.


When a server is associated with multiple server groups and the same additional setting is added to each server group, the additional setting added to the server group that was created first applies to the server.
