How do you add a new host to an existing host group with Hitachi Command Suite (HDvM to be more accurate)?  I'm sure the answer is staring me in the face but I just can't find the option!

I have a host group called "esx" which has 8 hosts all using it.  Each host can see the same LUNs.  I want to add two new ESX servers to the host group so they see all the same LUNs.  I just can't find a way to do this in HCS - I've clicked every button I can find! :)

To be clear - I've been using HDS storage for years but up until now I have only used Storage Navigator directly on the system.  We've only recently installed HCS and I'm trying to force myself to use it (v7.3.1).  I could just jump into Storage Navigator and add the WWNs for the new hosts to the existing host groups and it would work fine - but I don't want to "cheat". :)  I'd like to do it in Command Suite.

Is there a way?  Am I missing an obvious option somewhere?

Cheers,
David
