Adding and managing domain member groups

Groove Server 2010

Published: May 12, 2010

This article describes how to organize Groove Server Manager domain members into groups. A common set of management policies and Relay servers can be assigned to groups of domain members in Groove Server Manager, in addition to being applied to individual members or to the full Members list. The following procedures describe how to use the Groove Server Manager administrative interface to organize domain members into groups. New groups appear under Members in the navigation pane.

This procedure requires that Groove Server Manager is installed as described in Install and configure Groove Server 2010 Manager.

Creating and managing domain member groups

The following procedure describes how to add groups to and remove groups from the Groove Server Manager members list.

To create and manage domain member groups

  1. Logon to the Groove Server Manager administrative Web site, expand the domain, and then click Members in the navigation pane. The Members, Groups, and Reports tabs appear where you can perform member-level and group-level tasks.

  2. To add a group to Members or to a previously created group, click Members or the parent group, click the Groups tab, and then click Add Group in the toolbar. The Group Setup window appears.

  3. In the Name field of the Group Setup window, type the name of the group that you want to create. Optionally, add a group description in the Description text box.

  4. Select a policy template and Relay server pool for the group by selecting from the Policy Template and Relay Pool lists or by accepting the default selections. For more information about how to assign policy templates and Relay server pools, see Deploying policies to SharePoint Workspace users and Assigning Relay servers to SharePoint Workspace users.

  5. Click OK. The group appears under Members in the navigation pane on the left and on the Groups tab.

  6. To change policy template and Relay server pool assignments for a group, select a group in the navigation pane, click Group Properties in the toolbar, select another template or pool in the Policy Template or Relay Pool lists, and then click OK. For information about how to assign policy templates and Relay server pools to members, see Deploying policies to SharePoint Workspace users and Assigning Relay servers to SharePoint Workspace users.

    note Note:

    You can also change policy template and Relay pool assignments by clicking the Groups tab for a parent group and selecting members in the group whose assignments you want to change.

  7. To delete a group, select a group in the navigation pane, remove all members from the group, click the Groups tab, select the groups that you want to delete, click Delete Selected Groups in the toolbar, and then click OK at the confirmation prompt. The selected groups will no longer appear.

    note Note:

    You can remove members from a group by moving them to another group, as described in Moving domain members to a group earlier in this article, or by deleting the members, as described in Managing SharePoint Workspace users.

Moving domain members to a group

The following procedure describes how to move domain members from the Members list or a group into another group.

To move domain members to a group

  1. Logon to the Groove Server Manager administrative Web site, expand the domain, and then click Members in the navigation pane. The Members, Groups, and Reports tabs appear where you can perform member-level and group-level tasks.

  2. Click Members or a group in the navigation pane.

  3. From the Members tab, select the checkboxes of members whom you want to add to a group.

    Tip Tip:

    Select the top check box to select all members in the list.

  4. Click Manage Members in the toolbar, and then select Move Members from the drop-down menu. A dialog box appears that displays your member-group hierarchy.

  5. Select the group where you want to move the selected members, or click Add Group to add a new group that will hold the moved members. Then click OK. The members appear in the new location in the member lists.

    note Note:

    If Active Directory is not part of your Groove Server Manager system, you can add new users directly to a group by selecting the group, clicking Add Member in the toolbar from the Members tab, and then adding members as described in Manually creating a SharePoint Workspace user directory for Groove Server Manager.

  6. To assign members the same Policy Templates and Relay Pool as the destination group that you are moving the members to, select Change member’s settings to match the group they will be moved into. To delete a group, select a group in the navigation pane, remove or move all members from the group, click the Groups tab, select the groups that you want to delete, click Delete Selected Groups in the toolbar, and then click OK at the confirmation prompt. The selected groups will no longer appear.
