NCM - Exclude devices from the Running vs Start Up comparison?

Hello!  I managed to add multiple Ayava devices to our config backup job, and it works great.  However, the Avaya's don't have a so called "Startup" configuration.  Is there a way for me to manaully set certain devices to be excluded from the comparison that is done daily?    The team here knows there is nothing we can do to "make" a startup config on these boxes and are just thrilled that after creating the NCM template we can now download configs, we just don't want them in the comparison bucket, so to speak.  Thanks in advance for any replies.

If you are talking about the chart that compares startup to running, I would expect you can modify the template for the command used to download the startup config.  Just make it match how the running is downloaded.  This is more of a work around than a solution because you would then have 2 configs that are aquired in the same manner per device, but this would only apply to the devices that match the template for the specified Avaya devices.

This is why I would like to be able to "comment" them out as opposed to having to do that...

Thanks!  Need more people to vote!    I had to remove the chart from our page, it was turning into an angry red mouthed Pac Man.

Hi donc1972,

I suppose you're talking about the Daily Config Change Report. You can specify node selection criteria:

Is this the same place that the comparison is made that creates the "pic chart" - Overall Running vs. Startup Config Conflicts

No, unfortunately you can't do it for the chart.

Darn.  Is there a place for a feature request?  This seems like a no brainer as being useful for folks that have other than an all Cisco shop.

Have you considered:

Select Nodes Where all of the following apply

Agent IP Address Contains "."

Select Nodes Where Non of the Following apply

    Caption is "bad router"

    Vendor is not "Cisco"

    etc, etc, etc

Where would this be done?  That chart pulls the data from the comparison.  This is not a scheduled job, this is out of the box as far as I understand.
