Device templates contain device-specific commands that enable SolarWinds NCM to perform actions on a type of device. For example, a device template could enable NCM to execute scripts and download configuration files from Cisco Pix Firewall 535 devices.

NCM provides a set of device templates to perform actions on common device types. You cannot modify the default device templates, but you can create a custom device template based on a default template. 
Create custom device templates to add support for additional device types. To prepare for creating a custom device template, follow these suggestions.

Before you begin:

If using the F5 templates to manage BIG-IP F5 device configurations, see the "F5 device template behavior" in the reference section F5 device template behavior for important details.

When you are ready, you can create a device template using either the wizard or the XML editor.
