Updating a drive configuration
You can change information for a drive (for example, you can add it to a robot).
- On the main menu, select Drive Configuration.
- On the Drive Configuration menu, choose Update.
- Enter the name of the drive you want to update.
The current drive information is displayed, followed by prompts to change each field.
- Enter a new value or press Enter to retain the existing value.
One of the prompts asks if you want to configure the drive in a robot. If you do, tpconfig adds the drive immediately or gives you the opportunity to choose from any existing robot of the appropriate type.
When you have responded to all prompts, a revised Drive Information display appears, along with the following prompt:
Are you sure you want to UPDATE drive name xxxxx? (y/n) n:
- Answer yes by pressing y.
