Ignore text for the Device.Backup.Running Config activity needs to be added within the device script itself, as there is no field available in the activity Options tab to specify ignore text.
Attached (within the zip file) is a revised Occam script that we modified recently for another customer, to ignore the first line of config output where the compile time (xx:xx) constantly changes, e.g:
Building configuration... Done (xx:xx)
Take a backup of your existing Occam.General.txt file in the \Scripts folder and drop this one in its place.
Please let me know how you get on.

I must be missing something. I stop CatTools, replaced my Occam.General.txt in \Script Directory and then restarted the program.
I reran the Device.Backup.Running Config and it stills compares the first line.
I am running in Application Mode, not sure if that makes a difference.
Thanks for the Hope.
Could you show me a 'sample' of the top of the config file please so I can check that the ignore row we've added to the revised Occam script, actually matches the line in your config file.
(Note: make sure you **** out any config lines which may contain sensitive data that you wouldn't want to post on a public forum!)
Is there a patched script for Cisco routers? For some reason, the difference report finds "ip host ..." in different order on my router, plus the "ntp clock-period" fluctuates.
I guess I could just switch to the tftp backup which does have an ignore option.
Thanks in advance.
I'm backing up a PIX that has the line;
I want to ignore that line during the file compare...
