In the same question area.

I have setup a NT hostgroup and a Unix hostgroup so that I can run the same
nrpe checks and nsclient checks on hosts. But I actually organize my groups
based on server apps and locations. Is there a way to have a hostgroup be
marked as "hidden" so it won't show on any screens ? Right now I have the same
hosts showing up in multiple groups on the status screens, which isn't horrible
it just confuses some of our guys when only one host is down and they see 2 or
more Critical's on the screen.
