You can move devices to administration groups automatically by creating device moving rules or manually by moving devices from one administration group to another or by adding devices to a selected administration group. This section describes how to manually add devices to an administration group.

To add manually one or more devices to a selected administration group:

  1. In the main menu, go to Devices → Managed devices.
  2. Click the Current path: <current path> link above the list.
  3. In the window that opens, select the administration group to which you want to add the devices.
  4. Click the Add devices button.

    The Move devices wizard starts.

  5. Make a list of the devices that you want to add to the administration group.

    You can add only devices for which information has already been added to the Administration Server database either upon connection of the device or after device discovery.

    Select how you want to add devices to the list:

    • Click the Add devices button, and then specify the devices in one of the following ways:
      • Select devices from the list of devices detected by the Administration Server.
      • Specify a device IP address or an IP range.
      • Specify the NetBIOS name or DNS name of a device.

        The device name field must not contain space characters or the following prohibited characters: \ / * ; : ` ~ ! @ # $ ^ & ( ) = + [ ] { } | , < > %

    • Click the Import devices from file button to import a list of devices from a .txt file. Each device address or name must be specified on a separate line.

      The file must not contain space characters or the following prohibited characters: \ / * ; : ` ~ ! @ # $ ^ & ( ) = + [ ] { } | , < > %

  6. View the list of devices to be added to the administration group. You can edit the list by adding or removing devices.
  7. After making sure that the list is correct, click the Next button.

The wizard processes the device list and displays the result. The successfully processed devices are added to the administration group and are displayed in the list of devices under names generated by Administration Server.
