Use the Edit Connectors command in the connector profile form to add, edit, or delete the connector instances associated with the profile. Be aware that changing a connector profile also changes the connector configuration of all agents associated with the profile.

When you edit an agent, you must stop and start each connector instance to edit the running configuration of the agent. When you edit a connector profile configuration, stopping or starting each connector instance is not required, but you must activate your changes.

When you edit the connector configuration in a connector profile, you are modifying the profile configuration data, not the actual agent. When you edit a connector profile, you do not change the agents that are members of the profile until you click Activate. After you activate the profile, the system automatically updates all agents that are members of the profile, stops each connector instance, makes the necessary changes, and then restarts each connector instance.

Open the connector profile settings

  1. Open the Build > Groups view.
  2. In the Groups grid, locate the connector profile you want to edit.
  3. Click File:Success_Center/New_Articles/LEMUserGuide_MT/0B0/0C0/Button-Gear_16x13.png and select Edit.

    The connector profile pane opens, displaying the agents in the profile.

Add a new connector instance

  1. Select the connector you want to configure in the Groups grid.
  2. Click New.
  3. Update the connector settings using the Properties form.
  4. Click Save.
  5. Click Activate to apply your changes to all agents associated with the connector profile.

    Click Discard to discard your changes and reload the connectors in the previous configuration.

  6. Click Close to return to the Groups grid.

Edit the connector profile connector settings

  1. In the Connectors grid, select the connector instance you want to edit.
  2. Click File:Success_Center/New_Articles/LEMUserGuide_MT/0B0/0C0/Button-Gear_17x14.png and select Edit.
  3. In the Properties form, update the connector settings, as needed.
  4. Click Save.
  5. Click Activate to apply your changes to all agents associated with the connector profile. Click Discard to discard your changes and reload the previous connectors configuration.

    At times, not all of the agents in a profile will use the same logging path for a particular connector. You can verify this by checking the agent's configured connector status. If a connector has a not running File:Success_Center/New_Articles/LEMUserGuide_MT/0B0/0C0/Icon-Disabled_14x14.png status, the connector may have a different logging path.

    To correct this problem, you may want to add another instance to the connector profile's connector catalog that points to the alternative logging path. You can also create a new profile that has the alternative logging path.

  6. Repeat this procedure for each connector instance you want to reconfigure.
  7. Click Close to return to the Groups grid.
