Managing views

The Console’s Views feature provides a method that allows you to quickly manage a group of devices. Views are typically created according to business needs. For example, a view can represent a physical location, such as a building or user type. Unlike device collections, a target device can be a member of any number of views.

Farm administrators can create and manage views in the Console tree’s Farm\ > Views folder. Farm views can include any target device that exists in this farm. Site administrators can create and manage views in the Console tree’s Farm>Sites>YourSite\ > Views folder. Site views can only include target devices that exist within that site (Your Site).

To display or edit a views property, right-click on an existing view in the Console, then select the Properties menu option. The View Properties dialog displays and allows you to view or make modifications.

To perform actions on all members of a view, such as rebooting all target devices members in this view, refer to Configuring Views in the Console.
