Default How to customize/change the default device type/vendor/model


1. NB discovered/categorized some devices as incorrect device type/vendor/model.

2. User wants to change a specific device type/vendor/model to meet his requirements.

Root cause:

1. There may be some mistakes in our vendor model database.

2. Costumerís request.


NB uses the vendor model table to indentify the device type/vendor/model. We can customize them by changing the corresponding entries.

1. Right click the device which you want to change, and choose Properties to open the Properties window.

2. Copy the sysObjectID in the Properties window.

3. Go to the Vendor Model table to change the corresponding entry. Navigate to the Ribbon menu, switch to the Workspace page, and click the Vendor Model button to open the Vendor Model table. Press Ctrl +F to look up the entry you just copied.

4. Double click the entry to open the Vendor Model Definition window, change the Device type/vendor/model to match the user's requirements.

Note: The driver/icon will be changed automatically when you change the device type.

5. Remove the device from workspace and then rediscover or benchmark the devices to deploy the change.
