Switch cloning when uses a network belong to a template

I have a replacement switch. The Clone option doesn't appear, I think is because the switch belong to a network that is binding to a template. Is it possible to clone a switch that belong to a network binding to a template?

 

Any idea is welcome 🙂

Re: Switch cloning when uses a network belong to a template

Hi,

 

You are correct, the clone option is not available on Switch networks that are under a template.

 

When using templates, Dashboard provides the Profile feature instead.

 

This option allows you to pre-configure switches on the template using profiles.

 

When you add a new switch to the network, you can bind it to that profile and the switch will download the configuration in it.

 

More information can be found in our documentation:
