Merge Information from Other Connection Profiles

Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2012

If you have information in existing connection profiles that you need in the connection profile you are building, you can use the CMAK wizard to merge much of the information from existing profiles into the profile you are building. A profile that contains information from other connection profiles is called the top-level profile. A connection profile that has its information merged into another connection profile is called a component profile.
