During the initial configuration of the MAG or PSA device, the administrator will be prompted to select a specific personality. Once a personality is selected, the administrator will received step-by-step instructions to perform the initial configuration of the device.
If the device is running Pulse Connect Secure (PCS) or Pulse Policy Secure (PPS), the administrator can decide to repurpose the device for a different personality by perform the following steps:
