Ciscoworks, user defined groups 100 limit

Answered Question
May 3rd, 2007

Is there a way to create more than 100 User Defined Groups in the Common Services? The documentation says "The default limit of User Defined Groups you can create is 100."

'Default' suggesting this setting can be edited, yet i can find no way of doing so.

Any ideas? Or are there any known workarounds for exceeding this limitation?

I have this problem too.

You can increase the maximum number of user-defined groups easily, but be careful. More groups puts more load on the various OGS server processes as well as your client browsers. If you server and clients have the horsepower, edit the OGSClient.properties file that pertains to the application for which you need more groups. For example, if you need to add more user-defined groups to RME, edit NMSROOT/MDC/tomcat/webapps/rme/WEB-INF/classes/OGSClient.properties, and change MaxLimitforGroups to the desired value.

Each application has their own OGSClient.properties file. All of them will be found under NMSROOT/MDC/tomcat/webapps/*/WEB-INF/classes. Once you modify an OGSClient.properties file, restart dmgtd for the changes to take effect.
