Operations with a machine
This section is a simplified illustration of what happens with the policies on a machine when the machine is moved, copied, or deleted from a group.
In the diagram below, the container stands for a group; the one-color circle stands for a machine with one applied policy; the two-color circle stands for a machine with two applied policies; the white circle stands for a machine with no policy applied.
1. Here is the initial state: two custom groups contain different machines. A policy is applied to one group; another policy is applied to another group. The next schemes illustrate results of the specified actions.
2. Move to another group: Machine #3 is moved from one group to another. The “orange” policy is revoked; the “blue” policy is applied to the machine.
3. Add to another group: Machine #3 is added to another group. It becomes a member of both groups. The “blue” policy is applied, but the “orange” policy remains on the machine.
4. Remove from the group: Machine #3 is removed from the group. The “orange” policy is revoked from the machine. The machine remains in the All machines group.
