OK it does not seem to want me to alter the model in the device template
anyone know why??
Hi again... oops sorry i forgot that that field in the template is not editable by default. Do the following from Web Admin;
Got to the Advanced -> Configuration -> Device Templates page
Now select 'Computers' from the 'Device Category' pop-up
and then 'Generic PC as MD' from the 'Device Template' pop-up... this will set the device template to '28'. Now click the 'Pick Device Template' button
In the 'Edit Device Template 28' window that opens scroll down to the '#233 Model(string)' field and tick the 'Allowed to modify' tick box for that field. Now scroll down again and click 'Save'.
Now you can modify the data in the 'Model' field for your MD!
Hope this gets your MD working.
