What you want to do is exclude the
DHCP IP address ranges (scopes) from
netmon discovery by putting entries
in the seedfile, preceeded with a !

For example:


Notice how you can use a range of addresses.

Unfortunately once netmon has discovered them,
it's kinda hard to make them go away.  I inherited
a database with thousands of them already discovered,
so when I got the seedfile right, I blew away the
database and did a fresh discovery (nv6000_smit automapgen).

Check the NetView Administrator's guide for
more details.
