RE: [nv-l] How to permanently set nodes to unmanged state
Just want to cover two items to make
sure they are not the cause of your problem:
1) Do a "ps -ef |grep netmon"
and confirm that netmon is using the seedfile you are expecting it to use
2) Adding negative entries will not
remove nodes that are already discovered. You would need to delete "object"
from "all" submaps (and "all" maps if you have more
than one) first.
3) netmon will not partial discover
a device, so if a device as multiple interfaces and was discovered with
an interface that is not negated in the seedfile, all interfaces will be
discovered regardless of negative entries.
If netmon is truely using a seedfile
with negative entries (and the nodes are not already discovered), netmon
should not discover them.....if they are being wrongly discovered, then
I would suggest turning on full netmon tracing, capturing the rediscovery
of these devices, and providing the netmon.trace, trapd.log , and netmon
seedfile to NetView Support to help you debug.

I've actually tried putting them in both ways:
!10.10.10.25-35 (as an example)
Neither seem to make Netview ignore them. I am assuming the

that is wrong please let me know.

If its a range of addresses you can add something like this to the
Or something like that. Im not sure how the "limit discovery"
int the seedfile off the top of my head.
