Set the default appliance settings
You can configure default behavior for probes and agents. This includes software upgrades and the security credentials used when performing administrative tasks such as running scripts and distributing third-party software.
- Click Administration > Defaults > Appliance Settings.
- Click through each tab and configure the required options. For additional information, click the question mark icon for each section.
- Select Propagate to distribute the defined credentials to the managed devices.
- Click Save.
If you do not select the Propagate check box, the new default settings will only apply when installing new probes and agents.
Agents and probes update their configurations with the new settings selected. As new agents are installed, or a new probe installed, these defaults are used.
