This page can be accessed by clicking on Configure on the Computers page.
A Group can contain multiple Tags. Those Tags can be assigned to different Computers to organize them in various ways.
There are two types of Tags:
- Automatic Groups and Tags: Computers have Tags assigned to them dynamically (e.g., Status, Backup Definitions).
- Custom Groups and Tags: Tags created by the user.
In this page, you can create, edit and delete groups and tags, assign tags to computers and configure their visibility on the side menu or/and on the tags column on computers page.
Automatic Groups and Tags
There are tags that are automatically assigned to computers:
|Computer Information||General computer information such as 32- or 64-bit, UEFI, Virtual machine status|
|Operating System||The version of Windows running on the Agent|
The Site Manager connection status of the Agent:
Any backup health checks the Agent has failed:
|Domain||The Active Directory Domain the Agent is joined to|
|Domain OU||The Organizational Unit of the computer's account in Active Directory|
|Backup Definitions||The Backup Definitions this computer is a part of - there will be one tag per Backup Definition|
Whether the computer is unlicensed, licensed via an Agent license or via a standalone Macrium Reflect 8 license.
There is an additional status Awaiting Connection for computers which have never connected to Site Manager and therefore do not have any license status
|Agent Version||The version of Site Manager Agent installed on the computer|
|Reflect Version||The version of standalone Reflect (if any) installed on the computer|
|Reflect Edition||The edition of standalone Reflect (if any) installed on the computer (Workstation, Server, Server Plus etc)|
|Domain Groups||One tag will be added here for each security or distribution group that a computer's AD account is a member of|
|Agent Operating Mode||If there is an Agent user script disabling backups on this computer, the computer will have a Scheduled Backups Disabled tag|
|Activity||If there is an active backup or restore on a computer, it will have a Operation in Progress tag|
Note - automatic groups are only shown if there is one or more computers which have a tag in that group present
