For this you'd need a regular expression:

+ [#snmp-server location (First|Second|Third) floor#]

See this thread:


You can schedule config compliance jobs to run periodically. However, you will not be able to operate on dynamic groups in RME 4.0.6. That means, that if you add or delete devices from RME, you will have to recreate your job.

Config compliance jobs can be scheduled under RME > Config Mgmt > Archive Mgmt > Baseline Templates. You can look at the context-sensitive help under that page to get more details on this feature.

thanks J. I have couple of question 1st- when I select the device, can I choose just router as generic or router specific model should select?

finally can I replace the specific ip address or chassis id or any specific name with XXXX?

You can choose the generic Routers category provided your compliance template was designed for Routers. If you want to create dynamic parameters, enclose them in []. For example:

+ hostname [HOSTNAME]

interface Loopback0

+ ip address [IPADDR] [MASK]

Then, when deploying the template, you will get an opportunity to fill in these parameters for specific devices.
