I'm working through LMS 3.2 initial setup and got to configuring device config commands to be ignored for alerting.
I notice that the Archive Mgmt Exclude commands for the Device Category "Routers" has a factory default Exclude list
However, it seems that the "Switches and Hubs" Device Category has no exclude list configured by default, so I'm getting ntp clock-period alerts for my IE3000 switches for example.
Does anyone here have an opinion or reason why I shouldn't copy the default exclude list from the Routers category "end,exec-timeout,length,width,certificate,ntp clock-period" to the Switches and Hubs category?
The reason the top level Routers group has commands is that most routers run IOS, so those exclude commands are valid for the variety of sub-models. With switches, you have a wider mix of operating systems. Instead of copying the exclude commands to Switches and Hubs, copy them to the "Cisco IE 3000 Series Switches" sub-group.
