    Updating Router Profiles when Router Passwords are Changed

    You must update the corresponding router profiles every time a router password (or SNMP community string) on a device is changed in order to enable successful collection(s) to continue. To do so, select the affected entries in the router profile and perform a multiple modification, as described in Modifying Entries in a Router Profile on page 22. Be sure to click the Save button after making the changes.

    Tasks using the router profile will be updated automatically ONLY if Use Profile Directly was selected. Otherwise, if the user did not select Use Profile Directly, the tasks are then created to use a copy of the router profile, and need to be updated when the profile is updated.

    Pre-existing router settings in Traffic Collection Manager will not automatically be updated by changes to the Router Profiles window, and should be re-done in addition to the Router Profiles window. See Performance Management: Traffic Collection Overview for more details on traffic collection settings.

    Test the new router profile as described in Test Profile Connectivity.
