Device Profile Overrides

A profile enables an administrator to assign a common set of configuration parameters and policies to another access point of the same model. Profiles can be used to assign shared or unique network, wireless and security parameters to access points across a large, multi segment, site. The configuration parameters within a profile are based on the hardware model the profile was created to support. The central benefit of a profile is its ability to update devices collectively without having to modify individual device configurations.

However, device profile configurations may need periodic refinement from their original administered design. Or, a device profile could require modification from a profile configuration shared amongst numerous devices deployed within a particular site. Configurations applied at the device level override the configurations applied on the profile used by the device.
