Can I rename a Device Template?



I would like to differentiate my device templates from the default ones that came with PRTG so that folks adding devices know which ones to use more readily. How do I rename them?

Also, is it possible to edit them after they've been created?

When you create a device template, you will be requested to add your own name. You can later edit the name of the file in the template directory. Please have a look at Device Templates.

Templates can be edit using any standard text editor.
