In the Model Editor you can modify default profiles with the Edit Usage Profile action in the Model Editor. When you directly modify a default profile, all clients or servers in the capacity model that use the default profile that you edit are affected. However, you can copy a default profile template to create a new profile and then apply the profile to either a discrete group of client computers with the Edit Client Profile action in the Model Editor or to an individual server computer when you use the Edit server role action.

For a list of other tasks you can perform with the Capacity Planner Model Editor, see Capacity Planner Model Editor.
