LMS 3.2 factory default Archive Mgmt Exclude commands

Answered Question
Apr 28th, 2010

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

"end,exec-timeout,length,width,certificate,ntp clock-period"

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?

I have this problem too.

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.

OK thanks, Joe.

Maybe a factory default candidate for the next release?

Actually, on this subject.  It's quite difficult to show which entries have which settings and therefore which item in the hiearchy is taking prcedence. Would be nice to have a similar kind of system ala the DFM overriding group.

Anyway, until then

is there some config or properties file somewhere where I can see a better overall view? (and maybe reconfigure them)   [fingers crossed]

We have had a bug open on this for some time (CSCsr12119).  The way the excludes work is that the commands closest to the device in question are used.  So, if you have specific model excludes, those would be used instead of the series excludes.

Unfortunately, the excluded commands list is stored in the RME database, and is indexed by MDF ID.  It is not something that is desiged to be manipulated directly.
