Updating Telnet Credentials

Answered Question

I am running LMS 2.6 and since we can't set a default for the telnet credentials, I'd like to know if there is a way to run a job that sets these passwords on all devices at the same time? All devices have different community strings so I don't want those to all be the same. Is there a way to just change the Telnet Passwords all at the same time? thanks, marcie

Do NOT touch any field you do not want to change. Just change the fields that should apply to all devices.

Sure. Just go to Common Services > Device and Credentials > Device Management, select all your devices, then click on Edit Credentials. Only fill in the telnet credentials, then click Finish.

Ok, but I just want to make sure of one thing...when I do that and bring up Standard Credentials page there appears to be entries for the community strings (dots)....should I delete these? Will that remove them from the DB when I apply?
