The ESM console uses regions as a convenient method to organize the ESM managers. You can locate any manager on the ESM console in the All Managers region that Symantec ESM creates during installation. Symantec ESM automatically places any new managers that you add to the ESM console in the All Managers region. Symantec ESM lets you create additional regions to organize the managers on the ESM console.
You can create and group regions according to organizational structures or geographical location. You can add or delete regions as needed; however, you cannot delete, rename, or move Managers out of the default All Managers region. Regions are the only a way to group the managers on the ESM console.
Symantec ESM does not use regions in the policy execution or in any of the administrative functions. Symantec ESM stores the region information along with your user preferences in your ESM console account workspace of the registry.
