We are trying to manage the vmware probe settings via Admin Console but the configuration menu shows 'Resource is in read only mode'

How can this be resolved?


Release : 20.3

Component : UIM - VMWARE


1. Confirm if the robot with the vmware probe has a Setup VMware (Enhanced) profile deployed
2. If the Setup VMware (Enhanced) profile is not present check if the vmware.cfg has the following key: enable_bulk_configuration = mcs_stb
3. If the keys is present, this confirms that the vmware probe was deployed via a MCS - > Setup VMware (Enhanced) profile

A. VMware probe instances managed via MCS Profiles can only be configured via MCS. Read only mode is expected in Admin Console
B. Uninstalled and redeploy the VMware probe if the the probe will be managed directly. (Read only mode will clear up)
