Bulk Edit of Data Sources

Jump to solution

We regularly change the password to our domain service accounts. Is there a way to bulk update the account used to pull WMI logs on our Windows data sources instead of manually updating it on every data source?

Hi Drew,

Did you try to use the System Profiles?

Go to the ESM Properties > Profile Management > System Profiles > Add

Profile Type  = Data Source

Profile Agent = Windows

Username = domain\user

Password = ****

Event Logs = ?

Interval = ?

The update your datasource to use this profiles by checking the box and selecting it in each datasources

Regards

Ah, yes I forgot about that.

It looks like the previous ESM Admin didn't use profiles in this way so it looks like I will have to create a profile and assign it to each data source manually at lease the first time. From then on it will be a simple matter of updating the profile.

Thanks for the quick answer!
