I got a question recently about the system-defined groups used in Ops Center:
"As I started discovering assets in Ops Center, I saw that they were being sorted into system-defined groups based on asset type. How can I modify these groups for my environment - for example, to put assets from two different labs into two groups?"
Well, you can't. The system-defined groups will forever be system-defined. However, if you're looking for a way to control the way that your assets are organized, you can create user-defined groups.
For example, if you have two labs, you can create a group for each lab, and then add each asset to the correct lab group.
Another possibility is to use group rules to add the assets automatically. For example, when you discover the assets in Lab A, you could add a "LabA" tag to them. Then, you could set up a group for Lab A, and create a rule that will automatically add assets to the group if they have the "LabA" tag.
You can learn more about discovery and user-defined groups in the Asset Management chapter.
