Modify channel names



I would like to modify the names of the channels that were created while doing an autodiscovery of a Cisco switch. The channels reside under the "System Health Other" sensor, and are currently showing as unmodifable (greyed out, I can modify other settings, however). I'd like to replace the channel names with something more meaningful (i.e. 1040, 1052, etc).

thank you very much for the KB-Post. It's not possible to change the Channel Names on those sensors, because they are used internally to identify the actual value for each sensor channel on the target. Sorry.

best regards.
