Create instance groups

To create an instance group, you must first add all your Citrix Application Delivery Controller (ADC) instances to Citrix Application Delivery Management (ADM). After you have added the instances successfully, create instance groups based on their device family. By creating a group of instances, you can simultaneously perform actions such as upgrade, backup, and restore on all instances that have been grouped, instead of performing them on each instance separately.

To create an instance group using Citrix ADM:

  1. In Citrix ADM, navigate to Networks > Instance Groups, and then click Add.

  2. Give a name to your instance group and select the instance family from the list.

  3. Select the instance type from the Instance Family menu.

  4. Click Select Instances and select the instances from the window that slides in.

  5. Click Create.
