Connecting Systems to TrueCommand

To connect a system to TrueCommand, open the Configure menu and click Systems. This menu is organized into two tabs: Systems and System Groups. The Systems and System Groups tabs contain all the options to connect and organize systems in TrueCommand. All added systems are listed in the Systems tab with the current connection status.

Adding a System Manually

To connect a new system, click + NEW SYSTEM.

Enter the system IP address or DNS hostname, the nickname, and the password. If you make a mistake, you can reset the form by clicking RESET FORM.

Systems List

Adjusting Systems

Systems that are misconfigured (e.g. if you entered an incorrect password) appear offline in both the TrueCommand Dashboard and Systems list.

You can edit a system from the Systems list and enter new connection details. To go back to the original contents of the fields, click RESET FORM.

To remove a system from TrueCommand monitoring, click Delete.

Organizing Systems into Groups

Groups are collections of systems that are organized by TrueCommand administrators. Grouping systems allows you to efficiently manage system permissions and reporting.

Open the System Groups tab to view the list of created groups and the systems they contain. Create a Group by clicking Configure   > Systems > + NEW GROUP. Enter a name for the new group and click ADD SYSTEM to add a system to the group. When you’ve added all the desired systems to the group, click CREATE GROUP.


Editing a group allows you to update the group name or change which systems are members of that group.

To delete a system group, click Delete . Confirm the deletion by clicking YES.
