Create Profiles according to the different task areas such as

  • Network configuration
  • Sessions
  • Printer
  • Monitor configuration

The best practice is to define one profile for each task and not to mix them up. Otherwise, you will have problems maintaining your configuration settings later on.

In this case, we created a profile exclusively for the English keyboard layout:

After creating a profile and adjusting its settings, you can assign it to some Devices. You can assign an arbitrary number of profiles to each device.

Basically, there are two modes of assignment: direct or indirect.

Indirect means that you assign the profile to a device directory rather than to a single device. All devices within the directory then inherit the settings of this profile.

Select a Profile in the UMS tree and drag and drop the selection onto a device or device directory.

Select a device directory in the UMS tree and click the Add (+) button above the Assigned Objects panel.

In the Profile Selection dialog that appears, select the profile to assign and press Ok:

You can also do it the other way round: Select a profile in the UMS tree and assign a device directory to it.

For more information on profiles and their assignment to devices, refer to Profiles.
