Understanding Device Common Settings Profiles
Network Director enables you to configure device-level settings for switches and wireless LAN controllers in the Device Common Settings profile. Once you create the profiles, you can assign the profiles to a switch or a controller and you can deploy the profiles using the Deploy mode tasks.
Network Director also creates Device Common Settings profiles when it discovers devices. It creates a Device Common Settings profile for each device it discovers, importing the device-level settings from the device into the profile.
While configuring the profiles, you can specify the basic settings, which includes the profile name, device user list, and time settings. Apart from the basic settings, you can optionally specify the management and protocol settings too.
