Description

In this section, I show you how to create a template from the new host items, triggers and graphs that we've created in the last few videos. I also assign the new template to a newly discovered Windows host, and replace the original items, triggers and graphs from an earlier host with the new template that we've just created.

It's important to note that a hosts applications will not be copied across, when you copy the items to the new destination. The new destination should already have identical applications configure if you want to utilise the original application names in your copied items. This only affects copying the information to the new destination, and not when you assign a template to a new host. When you assign a template that already contains applications to a new host, the applications are also copied automatically.
