  1. From the main menu, select Server Profile Templates, and then create a new or edit an existing server profile template.

  3. To set profile consistency checking, select Manage connections.

    Select a Consistency checking option from the drop-down menu.

  4. In the SAN Storage panel, select the Manage SAN Storage check box.
