Dynamic Groups

Bcfg2 supports the use of dynamic groups. These groups are not included in a client’s profile group, but instead are derived from the results of probes executed on the client. These dynamic groups need not already exist in Metadata/groups.xml. If a dynamic group is defined in Metadata/groups.xml, clients that include this group will also get all included groups and bundles.

Setting up dynamic groups

In order to define a dynamic group, setup a probe that outputs the text based on system properties:


This output is processed by the Bcfg2 server, and results in dynamic group membership in groupname for the client. See the Probes page for a more thorough description of probes.
