DFM Bulk Unmanage

Unanswered Question

So I have roughly 1200 1811 and 200 1841 routers with similar configurations that I want to import into DFM.  I only have a couple interfaces on each router that I want to manage, but when I import a router there are quiet a few interfaces I manually unmange.

Problem I am having is that the bulk export/import scripts only show the ifindex number with no description.  If all these router used the same index for each interface it would be easy, but they don't.  Is there a way to export the interfaces with description (i.e. kind of like a detailed device view) ?  Or even better pre-manage/unmanage these when the device is originally imported?

Thanks in advance for any ideas I can work off of.

No, the scripts are hardcoded to export only the object name (for interfaces that is the device name and ifIndex).  The export file must be in a specific format so that the import works correctly.

There is no way to change the default management state.  By default, all interfaces will be managed.
