    I need to be able to set baselines for more than one server at a time. It would be great if I could pick multiple nodes, then choose one or more profile/elements to update the baseline.

    Each time I create an Admin User/Group in Solarwinds I need to add admin capabilities for SCM by hand could it be automatically added? I mean admins could give it to themselves so it doesn't matter.
