Configuring an SAE Group (C-Web Interface)
We recommend that you configure the SAE within a group. When you create a configuration group, the software creates a configuration with default values filled in.
Configuration groups allow you to build hierarchies that define different levels of sharing. There is a shared SAE configuration that you configure at the shared saeconfiguration hierarchy level. The configuration is shared with all SAE instances in the SRC network.
You can then create a grouped SAE configuration that is shared with some SAE instances. For example, if you create an SAE group called region within the shared SAE configuration, you could share the SAE configuration with all SAE instances in a particular region.
You can then create a lower-level group called location in the SAE group region, which could be shared with SAE instances in a particular location.
Configuration options that are defined in a lower-level group override options in a higher-level group. This functionality allows you to define general configuration values (such as plug-in definitions) on a higher level and augment or specialize them on a lower level.
