IT Expert Administrator users can change the device settings on a single APC SNMP device. These settings can be copied and used to configure multiple devices of the same type.
Device configuration requires EcoStruxure IT Gateway 1.5.0 or greater.
Only the values exposed in the config.ini for the device can be configured. User management settings may not be available on some devices.
Note: Device configuration is not supported for monitored NMC 4 devices. There is no config.ini file on NMC 4 devices.
FTP and/or SCP credentials for all the APC SNMP devices must be correctly configured in the Device File Transfer Settings option in the Gateway before you discover devices.
Note: SCP is supported in Gateway version 1.9.0 and newer.
