Yes you can. Some hints are at GitHub:

Hmm,

I see the same behavior in my LAB. Maybe there is still a problem with the change from version 7 to 8. Here is a KB article:

https://gtacknowledge.extremenetworks.com/articles/Solution/Device-are-unknown-after-upgrading-to-Ex...

Mentioned a problem. But the article is one year old.

In version 8 you should use Vendor Profile feature instead of myDeviceType.properties.

Hello Pala,

but Vendor Profile is a beta feature in 8.1.3.65 isn't it?

Best regards

There are two parts of Vendor Profiles. Administration -> Vendor profile = this is beta feature where you can do a lot of customization.
What you need is not a beta feature = device -> edit device -> vendor profile. This menu is limited and is not beta.

Glad it works for you :)

Good luck.

I read in the releas notes:

Configure Device Window Enhancements

The Configure Device (formerly Edit Device) window now includes the following

enhancements:


The Vendor Profile tab allows you to add, configure, and edit device vendor

information via Extreme Management Center.


But I cann't find this tab :(

Hello Johan,

as Pala wrote there are two ways to change Vendor Profiles. The full access is Beta and you have to enable the "Beta Feature".

But there is a easier way to add only a new device.

Go to:

"Devices->right mouse button to the device->Device->Configure Device...->Select "New Vendor Profile"

Best regards

Yes I am using 8.1.3.65 of XMC.


I found out that when I point the unkown device I can configure a New Vendor Profile
