An Avamar Group provides the mechanism for applying a set of backup rules to a collection of clients. Backups are scheduled to run automatically, using the group specifications. Groups contain a Dataset, a Schedule, and a Retention Policy which comprise the backup policy for all members (clients) of the group. Each client that is to be backed up must be a member of at least one group; therefore, a Default Group provides a policy when a client has not been assigned to a more specific policy.
This report lists the groups defined on the selected Avamar servers.
