5.1 Resource Groups

Any group object displayed in the Explorer tree represents a collection of similar object types. Groups can also be created automatically, such as when a provisioning adapter discovers a local repository on a VM host. For example, the xen provisioning adapter, upon discovery of a VM host, automatically creates a local repository for that VM host and places the created repository in a xen repository group. You can also create groups manually in the Orchestration Console, either by clicking the Actions menu and choosing Create Resource Group or by right-clicking a Resource Group object anywhere in the Resource hierarchy and selecting New Resource Group.
