A server group is a logical container in which multiple servers are grouped together for common purposes.

Grouping servers in a server group allows you to apply DNS and DHCP deployment options to all servers that comprise the group. After you create a server group, you can add one or more DNS/DHCP Servers to the server group. You can then apply DNS or DHCP options to the server group and these options will be inherited by all servers that belong to that specific server group. When you remove DNS or DHCP options from the server group, the options are no longer inherited by the servers that belong to the group.

Attention:
  • You can only add BlueCat DNS/DHCP Servers to a server group.
  • A DNS/DHCP Server can only belong to a single server group.
  • Any deployment options that you apply to specific servers within a server group will override the options set on the server group.
