Short Description:

1. Drag and drop the probe, e.g., url_response probe
Using the Infrastructure manager, simply drag and drop the configured url_response probe back into the local Archive.

2. Rename the package
In the dialog window that comes displays, make sure to save as 'Configuration only' and rename it to something like url_response_template.

3. Drag and drop the probe package onto the target robot/node where the url_response is already deployed.

Note that you can use this approach to copy probe configuration for any Nimsoft probe.

A detailed description of the process is presented below:

Example, Copying a probe configuration to another probe
This is very useful if you have configured a probe on one robot and you want to the configuration parameters on the same type of probe installed on other Robots. In this example we use the emailgtw probe.
?
1. Log on to the Hub where Robot with the probe configuration you want to use as source is installed. Select the emailgtw probe from the probe list in the Infrastructure Manager. Drag and drop the probe into the Archive.

3. Ensure that the 'Configuration Only' option is checked and press the OK button. You will now end up with a new package in the archive. Now you can select the Probe configuration package and drag and drop it on the selected targets/robot(s).

4. The distribution progress window will appear, and the configuration of the probe is completed as soon as the distribution process is finished.
