Question: 

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:  

This is general information applicable to most versions of UIM.

 

Answer: 

          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.
