User Manager Pro Suite provides both simple (static) groups of systems to manage and dynamic groups of systems (automatically managed systems lists). These videos show how to set up a simple static group of systems and then how to add systems to the list.
Once Windows systems have been added to a managed group, other videos show how you can highlight them and perform reporting and security changes.

Getting Started with User Manager Pro Suite: System Group Management
Create a Simple Group
This walkthrough shows the steps necessary to create a new simple group of systems to manage. Creating a group of systems to manage is the first step in using User Manager Pro.
Add Systems to a Group
This walkthrough shows the process of adding systems to a newly created group using the simple network browser. There are other ways to add systems to the management group; for details on these mechanisms, see the online help file.
Basic Windows Security Management Operations with User Manager Pro Suite
Administrator Password Management Made Easy
Unsecured Windows administrator passwords are a serious IT security threat. But with User Manager Pro Suite, these passwords can be automatically changed and made available to delegated and audited users. Learn more in this 3:47 video.
View the Members of the Local Administrators Group
This walkthrough shows how to retrieve all the members of the local Administrators groups on all systems. Using this procedure, accounts that have administrative access can be verified. All implicit member accounts (those accounts which are members of a group which is a member of the local Administrators group) can be included. Changes to group memberships can be made with User Manager Pro.
Add a Domain User to a Local Group
This walkthrough shows the process of adding a domain user to a local group. In this example, a domain user is added to the local Administrators group. This procedure can be used to add any domain user/group to any local group; for example, adding a domain group to each system's local Administrators group.
Add a New Local User
This walkthrough demonstrates the process of creating a new local user.
Change Audit Settings
This walkthrough shows the process of changing the auditing settings for a system. This operation can be used to standardize auditing settings, which can be helpful in recognizing security circumvention attempts and other potential security problems.
Remove Account Lockouts
This walkthrough shows the process of removing an account lockout on a local account. Account lockout can happen if too many unsuccessful login attempts are made on the account.
Reboot Systems Remotely
This walkthrough shows the process of initiating a reboot of a system remotely.
Schedule a Remote Reboot
This walkthrough shows the process of scheduling a reboot to occur on a recurring schedule. This scheduled operations feature can be used to perform operations at specified times (to prevent disruption during normal business hours, for example), or on a recurring basis.
Advanced Windows Security Management Operations with User Manager Pro Suite
Use the IP Scanner to Populate a Group
There are several methods of populating groups with systems to manage. This walkthrough demonstrates the use of the IP Scanner to scan an IP address range, and identify all the IP addresses that are associated with valid systems on a network that an administrator can access. Using this feature, an administrator can ensure that they are managing all systems in a certain IP range, regardless of their names, domains, or other configuration parameters.
Create a Dynamic Group
This walkthrough shows the process of creating a dynamic group. A dynamic group is a group which is defined by a set of parameters (such as domains, IP address ranges, and AD paths) and is auto-populated with all the systems found in these ranges. Dynamic groups can be very useful for automatically associating groups in User Manager Pro with the actual network configuration, and automatically updating User Manager Pro whenever the network configuration changes.
Remove Obsolete Machine Accounts
This walkthrough shows the process removing old, unused machine accounts from a domain controller. Managing Machine Accounts in a Windows domain is a frustrating task and in some environments, completely impossible. User Manager Pro can find and delete these obsolete machine accounts in even the most populous domain.
Local Group Membership - Move All Except
This five minute webinar will show you how to manage different users in the same group on different Windows systems with ease.
