Windows-server template


#1

Hello,

I’d like to separate my virtual and physical windows servers.

For my physical servers I’m using the supplied windows template.

For my virtual servers I’m basically copying the supplied tempate however what "use ““template”” " do I use?

If I have the following:

define host{
use windows-server

all host that use that template get put under the window-server group

I did make a new group called “virtual windows server” however they still get called in both groups.

Please let me know if I need to explain better or what I’m doing wrong.

Thank you,
Rudy

got it!

“hostgroups” will all you to use the template but sperate them into your defined group

got it!

“hostgroups” will allow you to use the template but sperate them into your defined groups

also rather than defining each host you can just use the hostgroups.
