Use Apply setting (CSV) to apply a setting to multiple systems.
An example use for this feature is to update the log-in password (for ACEmanager or AirLink OS) on your devices and give each one a unique value. You can download a list of systems, populate a new, unique log-in password for each one, and have AirVantage update each device the next time they check in.
Apply setting (CSV) uses the .csv download/upload method used for system configuration throughout AirVantage. After selecting the systems (all with the same device type and firmware) and then selecting the setting you want to change for all of them, you create a .csv file, upload it and then apply it to change the setting on several systems at once. It is important to remember that you must select a firmware revision as a baseline for the systems you will update. This means that if you have a mix of device types in your fleet, you will need to update each group individually.
The Apply setting (CSV) window appears.
Select Reboot the systems upon completion if you want each system to be rebooted after .csv file application.
NOTE: Applies to ALEOS-based systems only.
If needed, use the Advanced settings to set a Scheduling and Timeout.
Click Apply setting (CSV).
An operation is created, you can follow the progress from the Operations list. For each system, at the next heartbeat, the setting will be configured, overwriting the previous value.
For AirLink OS devices (XR90 and XR80 routers, for example), you must select an existing dataset from which to select the setting(s) you want to change for multiple devices. For more information about datasets, see How to create a dataset? .
