    4. Once the connectivity test is completed, accept the corrections that are made, for example, to the login information of the router profile, via the Profile Fix button menu.
    5. The resulting profile is now ready for CLI collection via the Scheduling Live Network Collection task. (Admin > Task Manager, New Task, Scheduling Live Network Collection). For the collection methods, select config, interface, equipment_cli, and any other information of interest.
