Creating a new group enables you to customize the settings for a group of managed elements. You can use two methods to create a new group:

  • Copy an existing group. The new group contains the same settings and thresholds as the original group. Matching criteria are not copied.
  • Create an empty group. The new group does not contain any settings or members. You must add settings and matching criteria, and set the priority of the new group.

After you create a new group, use procedures previously described to adjust the settings of the new group.
