Exporting Computers

Depending on whether you right-clicked a group or the Remote Update node, exporting will write either all computers from the selected group or from all groups to the specified text file.

 

Removing computers from the list

You can remove single computers, all computers from a group or all computers from all groups:

 

Single computer

Right-click a computer and click Delete or select a computer item and hit the Del button on the keyboard.

 

All computers from group

Right-click a group and select Delete All.

 

All computers from all groups:

Right-click the Remote Update node and select Delete All.

 

File Format

The text file used for imports and exports should be configured to the following format:

 

[Name of group]

computer1

computer2

computer3

[Name of next group]

computer10

computer11

[Another group]

computer70000

computer70001

 

Names in brackets describe the start of a new group whereas names alone specify computer names. To see an example of such a text file simply add a couple of computers to the computer list and export it to a text file. You can then use this file as a template for future imports.
