Create a new server inheriting setup from existing server

Create a new server without entering all the security & agent restriction info you would add to a server after creation.

Create a new server without having to enter all the security and agent restriction information you would normally add to a server after creation.

I have found you can copy and paste and rename a server document in the directory 'creating' a new server. I copied and renamed a server doc from one of my existing server and called it newserver/domain. When I wish to create a NEW server I copy it yet again giving it the ultimate name of my new server. When I create the server using the admin tool, it 'finds' the existing server doc and asks if I wish to update it. Answering yes, it applies the new keys to that doc and keeps all the necessary security settings in place. Saves me about 45 minutes by NOT applying all the security as to who is local admin, who can run restricted and unrestricted agents etc.
