Separate group for Guest VMs under vCenter Server?



OK, have finally been able to add the VMWare vCenter Server source, and then be able to add the sensors for the guest VMs. Whew. Halfway home, it appears.

Now, as odd as this question is... Is there a way to separate different sensors into separate "groupings" underneath a source? Because I'll be darned if I can seem to find one... And it would be very helpful to separate the DMZ VM servers into their own grouping for alerts and whatnot...

You cannot create groups underneath device but what you could do is create multiple "Devices" for you VCenter server and only add the sensors that you want to the different Devices to group them that way.
