Repositioning computer system template entries

You can change the order in which computer system templates are listed in the Computer Systems pane. The list order is important because template matching is applied from top to bottom in the template list and stops at the first match. For example, a more generic template matches all servers of a specific type and a more specific template matches only servers that have a specific string argument.

To reposition entries in the Computer Systems pane, complete the following steps from the Discovery Management Console:

  1. In the Functions pane, click Discovery > Computer Systems.
    The Computer Systems pane is displayed.
  2. In the Computer Systems pane, select the template that you want to reposition and complete one of the following steps:
    • To move the template up in the entry list, click Move Up.
    • To move the template down in the entry list, click Move Down.
