Machine Groups and Machine View (View > Machine) are completely different things Protect.
Machine View (View > Machines) is a dynamic list of machines that have been been scanned in the past. These aren't truly containers since the machines can move around if they are included in multiple Machine Groups. In other words, the machines would show under the Machine Group name that last scan it.
The static lists of machines are going to be in your Machine Groups and there numerous method to add machines to them. If you are looking populate the View > Machines then scanning from a Machine Group or groups is the way to go. I would suggest create a new Machine Group for each Segment and determine the best method to add machines to fit your needs. Machines scanned by these groups will show in View > Machines under the Machine Group name.
The ProPatches folder is setup during the first deployment to the target machine, it is only used for deployments.
Let me know if you have any questions,
Thanks for explaining the difference between machine and machine groups.
But the answer(s) so far did NOT answer the original question? How to I add a machine to an machine group in Shavlik Protect 9.2?
To add additional machines to a machine group, you open the machine group in which you wish to add the machines to and you will find the options for how to add a machine.
From each of these tabs, you can add machines by whichever method you choose to and they will get added to that machine group. Once added, you would click 'Save' on the window and this will save any changes made to the machine group including the newly added machines there.
