This section includes the following topics:

About client groups

NetVault Backup lets you group the clients into one or more logical entities.

The NetVault Backup MSP Administrator and Tenant Administrator can use client groups to control user access to clients. They can grant access to specific clients by using a client group. Therefore, when you add a client, it is automatically added to the default group.

NetVault Backup includes a pre-configured unique client group named default, and the local administrator assigns this client group to MSP administrator manually. The NetVault Backup Server is by default part of this group, MSP administrator can register, assign, and configure a new client to this client group to access it. During tenant registration, a default and unique client group is created, and all the clients registered by the tenant administrator are part of this client group.

Creating a client group

You can group the NetVault Backup Clients into one or more logical entities. A client group can contain all or specific clients. The new clients automatically become members for client groups that are configured to include all clients.

On the Client Group Management page, click New Group. On the Client Group page, provide the following information
In Group Name, type a name for the client group.
