I support a campus that has both centralized and decentralized staff. Our heirarchy of groups is based on location. Location is determined by IP address.
Is it possible to create a security group and give them only the ability to assign owners to a system in their group?
You will find some best practices to do this security configuration on this tech: http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH188388
The section Solution contain the general steps.More information about configuring security for the Symantec Management Platform can be found in its user guide starting on in Chapter 4: Configuring security, page 69:
If Locations were created based on IP address, then you already have an Organizational View (Assets by Location) that you can use.
Does this help?
