DameWare Remote Support supports both Local and Global group administration. When you open the Groups view from the Network Browser pane, Remote Support determines the role that the selected machine is playing in the network and then displays the appropriate Groups view, either Local or Local and Global. Use the Groups view to view, add, or delete groups relative to the computer you selected prior to launching the view.

The following icons distinguish the group type(s) in the far-left column of the Groups view:
