  7. (Optional) Save your device's credentials as a profile. Name the profile and choose Save profile name. For more information about profiles, see Managing profiles.

  8. On the Local devices tab, choose a device to see its details, such as the network interfaces and AWS services that are running on the device. You can also see details for clusters from this tab, or manage your devices just as you do with the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI). For more information, see Managing AWS services on your device.

    For devices that have AWS Snow Device Management installed, you can choose Enable remote management to turn on the feature. For more information, see Using AWS Snow Device Management to Manage Devices.
