LMS 3.01 netconfig job & import device list

i have heard there is a way to import a list of devices into a netconfig job instead of selecting from the device tree. Basically my Opnet reports send me large lists of devices and i'd like to import that list of devices straight into a netconfig job.

You can't import a device list into a Netconfig job through the GUI, but you can run a Netconfig job using cwcli and specify a device list file. The device list file should contain a list of devices with each device on a separate line. The cwcli command will be something like:

cwcli netconfig createjob -u admin -p admin -devicefile FILENAME -mode config -commandfile FILENAME

I run exactly the same command but I get th following message:

cwcli netconfig createjob -u admin -p password -devicefile /opt/CSCOpx/bin/test.list -commandfile command.file -policyfile policy.in -description "cwcli netconfig job" -mode config

FATAL - NETCLI014:Netconfig createjob command failed

FATAL - Invalid argument: officeuk

my test.list file content is:

cat test.list


The weird thing is that if I run the same command but without having a file but device (-device officeuk), it works!

I can see any reason why this is not working, can u?
