Adding More Devices to an Existing Modeled Instance
You add more devices to an existing modeled instance if you want to add devices using the existing parameters of the modeled instance. You can perform this task from the Devices workspace.
To add more devices to a modeled instance:
- On the Network Management Platform user interface, select Devices > Model Devices.
The Model Devices page is displayed.
- Select the modeled instance to which you want to add more
devices and select Add More Devices from the Actions menu.
The Add More Devices page is displayed. You can view the name of the modeled instance, the device family of the modeled instance, the device template associated with the modeled instance, the device image associated with the modeled instance, and the number of devices that are already part of the modeled instance.
- (Optional) In the Apply Tag field, enter a tag that you want to assign to this modeled instance.
- In the Number of Devices to add field, use
the up and down arrows to specify the number of devices that you want
to add to this modeled instance.
The default value is one.
The page is populated with as many rows as the number of devices that you specify in the Number of Devices field. The Hostname, Platform, and OS version columns are populated with default values. You can modify the default hostname, and the platform of the device. If you have selected the Serial Number Validation check box in the modeled instance, you need to enter the serial number of the device.
If you want to modify the hostname for a device, double-click the hostname of the corresponding device and enter the new hostname
If you want to modify the platform for the device, select the appropriate platform for corresponding device from the drop-down list.
- Click Add.
The devices are added to the modeled instance.
You cannot add more device to a Modeled instance when it is created with the following scenarios:
Activate Now check box is not selected
Host name validation is enabled
Static connection profile type is selected
