If you install CA ControlMinder with advanced policy management enabled on your endpoints, CA ControlMinder Enterprise Management automatically assigns hosts to host groups. CA ControlMinder Enterprise Management assigns hosts to host groups based on criteria such as host type, operating system, the installed version of CA ControlMinder, or any other common attributes that you define. You can then assign policies to the host groups.
Note: When you install CA ControlMinder on a Linux endpoint, that endpoint is automatically assigned to the "All Linux Hosts" host group. If you install UNAB on that endpoint, it is also automatically assigned to the "All UNAB Hosts" host group.
CA ControlMinder Enterprise Management automatically assigns hosts to host groups in the following way:
The heartbeat contains information about the endpoint attributes.
You can use World View to view the hosts assigned to each host group.
