Disable logging of "show running-config" on MDS 9124

After our MDS 9124 was upgraded from 3.1 to 4.2, it now logs in the config whenever a "show running-config" is done. This has somewhat become an issue because we use Cat Tools to backup our configs so when it logs in, it does a "show running-config" which then triggers the config to be updated which Cat Tools sees as a change and backs up the config everyday because of this. Very annoying.

Anyway to disable this? Here is what the lines look like in the config:

!Command: show running-config
!Time: Mon Jan  4 07:04:03 2010

Re: Disable logging of "show running-config" on MDS 9124


We have the same issue and have not found a good way to deal with it.  Have you found a way to eliminate the "!Time...." line?  Is there an NX-OS command to disable the output of the time in the 'show running-config' command?

Re: Disable logging of "show running-config" on MDS 9124

I was not able to find a way to disable and I couldn't find anything in CatTools (our version is a couple years old) to exclude checking certain lines. So for now the configs get backed up everyday. I'll probably update CatTools and contact Solarwinds to see if there is a way to customize the backup script.
