Computer Configurations

Use the Hardware Editor Computer Configurations page to create, copy, modify, and delete computer configurations in the hardware library.

Computer configuration icons indicate whether and how you can manipulate a configuration.

  • A locked icon indicates that the computer configurations are system-defined and cannot be deleted.
  • An in-use icon indicates that you can modify the computer configuration, but you cannot delete it until the configuration is no longer in use by a capacity model. If you modify a configuration that is in-use by a capacity model, the hardware configuration change you make is applied to the corresponding item used in the capacity model.

You can take any action on a configuration without an icon.
