How do I create instances of a device or node?

For example, let's say I have a device called DevA that has other devices, nodes and artifacts inside it, all of which I have depicted in a deployment diagram.

Now, let's say I have another node that contains 4 DevAs linked by a network and these together comprise DevB. I created a second diagram and placed one new device node called DevB in it. Then I copied DevA from the 1st diagram and pasted 4 times into DevB. (As an aside, you cannot patse on top of an existing node. You have to paste outside its boundary and then drag inside). Finally, I created a node to represent the network. Links don't work but that's another issue.

Now I want to name the instances of DevA - D1, D2, D3 and D4. My understanding is that I should use a ':' between the general name and the instance name eg DevA : D1.
When I did this, all the instances of DevA took that same name. In other modelling systems, I have seen different pallet icons for node and node instance but that does not appear to be the case with Papyrus and I don't see anything appropriate in the properties.

I don't know how to add another question to the same topic, so I use Reply. Sorry, I don't have an answer for Steve's question, but it is quite old anyway.
I have this question regarding a deployment diagram, Papyrus version
How can I nest Device nodes more than two levels deep and show them in the diagram? I can create this kind of structure in the model view by adding child nodes, but when I drag a nested structure to a container device in the deployment diagram, only the top device is being shown inside the container device. (In my case the nested devices are "Real Time Model::base board::CPU::flash::boot".

By the way, I found a work-around. I created the devices bottom up. I created first a flash device and placed inside it a "boot" and an "application" device. Then I created an "EEPROM" and a "CPU" device. I then placed the "flash" and the "EEPROM" device into the "CPU" device, and subsequently the "CPU" device into the "base board" device. But I still wonder whether there is an easier way.

Hi Gunter,

As you have noted, my question was never answered. I also wrote several bugs at the same time and your problem could be a result of the way in which bug #349322 was fixed.
There does not seem to be much interest in Deployment diagrams. Bug #349324,
which I also wrote around the same time is still open.
