Use device matching to apply updates to your live hardware configuration based on changes you make in the Design view.
If SystemDesigner finds a matching device on the Design diagram, it automatically applies updates to the matching live device in your project.
|Hardware matching disabled||When Sync is set to Disable hardware matching, SystemDesigner prevents changes to devices in the Design view from applying to matching live hardware.|
|Not Matched||SystemDesigner does not identify a corresponding device on the Live diagram.|
|Partially Matched||SystemDesigner identifies a potential match on the Live and Design diagrams. Click Update modules in chassis to update the device on the Design diagram to match the configuration of the device on the Live diagram.|
|Matched||SystemDesigner identifies a corresponding device on the Live diagram.|
|Device model||Search for the correct model on the Design view palette and the Model drop-down menu in the Identity section of the Item tab.|
|Device name||Use the Device name field in the Identity section of the Item tab to change the name of a device on the Design diagram.|
|Order of controllers and modules inside a chassis||If a device is partially matched, click Update modules in chassis on the Item tab to update the order of the modules in the chassis to match the corresponding live chassis. This button only appears when Sync is set to Enable hardware matching.|
|Device port connections||Ensure port connections are identical to those of the device on the Live diagram.|
