Server groups assist you in monitoring and configuring servers. You can create groups and assign servers to the groups. For example, you can group servers by geographical location, or by function. If you have a large number of servers, you can filter the servers shown on the Directory Servers tab so that only the servers in the group are shown. You can also copy the server configuration (for example index or cache settings) of one server to all other servers in a group. For instructions on how to set up and use a server group, see the Directory Server online help.
