Procedures for modifying existing groups and creating new ones are given in “Working with groups and settings” on page 115.

When you finish editing the properties of a group, perform these steps:

  1. Click the Apply button to save your configuration changes to an existing group object or to a newly created group object in the repository of Network Protocol Manager.

  2. Click the Reconfigure toolbar button to make your configuration changes take effect.

    When the reconfiguration completes, Network Protocol Manager imports the group object and saves the group object to its repository. Then, for a polling group object, Network Protocol Manager starts the polling that is configured for the object; for a threshold group object, Network Protocol Manager starts using the polling thresholds that are configured for the object.
