Issue/Introduction

Is there any way to create a configuration-only packages which will add a new profile to deployed probes without editing any of the other configured profiles (each probe is configured uniquely)?

Environment

Release: UIM 7.x, 8.x

Resolution

 

  1. Deploy a probe to a test system of the same OS type that will be used for mass configuration updates (ntservices in this example)
  2. Remove all profiles except the newly-configured profile which will be used for mass configuration updates

              3.   Drag the probe back to the archive and save it (with a unique name) as a configuration-only package.

              4.   Open the configuration-only package in the archive, right-click on 'ntservices.cfx', select 'Edit File ...

              5.   Delete all code in the 'ntservices.cfx' file except:

                    <services>
               <new_service>
              ...
               </new_service>
              </services>


              6.   Deploy the configuration-only package to other robots to update the configuration with the new 'new_service' profile.
