Overview

An administrative group is a logical categorization of the servers that share something in common. For example, servers located in one region can belong to one administrative group. Similarly, servers having the same operating system can belong to another administrative group. 

The administrative group allows you to organize your servers in groups for better management. To manage the servers under one group, you can assign a group administrator. It is mandatory that you create an administrative group and attach servers to it.

For NAS devices, you can group NAS shares assigned to the same organization under one administrative group. You can create multiple administrative groups based on your grouping criteria and add NAS shares to the groups.
