Editing devices

Perform the following steps to modify an existing device.

To edit devices

Devices published from the BMC Atrium CMDB cannot be edited in the administration console. Also, you cannot edit a device alias for a published device.


If you repeatedly add or delete devices, the local agent might become associated to multiple devices.

  1. In the Administration Console, expand the Device folder.
  2. Expand the device type folder, and select the device to edit.
  3. Right-click the device and select Edit.
  4. On the Configuration tab, make any required changes.
  5. On the Control tab, make any required changes.


    If you make changes on the Control tab, all SNMP-based monitors are updated. However, if a Distributed Interface MIB monitor instance exists on the device and you make any changes on the Control tab, the Affected SNMP-based Auto Discovery-enabled Monitors window is displayed.

  6. Click OK.
  7. Select the monitor to which you want to apply the new control settings.
  8. Click OK.
