3-3 Cisco Wide Area Application Services Configuration Guide OL-26579-01 Chapter 3 Using Device Groups and Device Locations Working with Device Groups Creating a New Device Group Before you create a device group, make sure you understand the unique properties that you want the group to contain. For example, you may want to set up two device groups that have different authentication settings or different time zone settings. To create a device group, follow these steps: Step 1 From the WAAS Central Manager menu, choose Device Groups > All Device Groups . The Device Groups window appears. From this window you can perform the following tasks: Click the Edit icon next to the device group that you want to modify. Create a new device group as described in the steps that follow. Step 2 Click the Create New Device Group icon in the taskbar. The Creating New Device Group window appears. Step 3 In the Name field, enter the name of the device group. The name must be unique and should be a name that is useful in distinguishing the device group from others on your system. The name cannot contain characters other than letters, numbers, period, hyphen, underscore, and space. Step 4 Choose either WAAS or WAAS Express for the Configuration Group Type. This sets the type of devices that the group can contain. A WAAS Express group can contain only WAAS Express devices. A WAAS group can contain all types of devices except for WAAS Express devices.
