How to: Edit an Existing Test Setting for a Test Plan

Visual Studio 2010

You can edit existing test settings for a test plan if you want to select different diagnostic data adapters, or configure the selected adapters to collect different data. You can edit the test settings from the Properties page for your test plan in Microsoft Test Manager, or you can edit them from the Test Settings Manager in the Lab Center.

If you change the roles in your test setting, you might also need to create, edit, or select a different environment for your test plan. For more information about the environments that you can use, see Setting Up Test Machines to Run Tests or Collect Data.

The following procedures describe how to edit an existing test setting. To create a new test setting, see Setting Up Machines and Collecting Diagnostic Information Using Test Settings.
