Domain component objects can only appear at the top of the organizational hierarchy, or within another domain component object.

Domain component objects can contain organizational unit, domain component, Active Directory container, or user profile objects

To create a domain component object use the Administration Console or the tarantella object new_dc command.

In the Administration Console, the configuration settings for domain component objects are divided into a series of tabs.

Group Object

Use a group object to associate groups of applications with a user profile, organizational unit, or organization, or to associate similar application servers for application load balancing.

Group objects are not the same as organizational units. Applications and application servers can only belong to one organizational unit, but can be a member of many different groups.

Members of a group can be moved or renamed without affecting group membership.

Group objects can be added to the following tabs for an object.

To create a group object, use the Administration Console or the tarantella object new_group command.
