yes, it should work in the same way. It's only a condensed setup. So  
I still have no clue about your former problem. The # you entered  
also there, or was it only an email edit?

Yes, just define an additonal hostgroup with this all 16 machines  
included and attach a third PE only to this hostgroup. Just use a  
different name, which can't be reached by the former "test*".
