This issue has been solved. See solution.


I need to know if by using SMP security user accounts, roles and permission how can we apply the following scenario:

  1. Provide pcAnywhere operations to a separate IT team that can view, perform functions and manage everything related to pcAnywhere
  2. Provide Patch Mangement operations to a separate IT team that can view, perform fucntions and manage everything related to Patch Management.

Basically I want to be able to let different IT teams view and manage their part of the SMP or solution console and nothing else.
