Re: NNM 7.53 and use of "filters" file


Answer to this question


Does anyone have any good examples of their setup(don't discover printers, dont' discover certain domain,  don't discover names="pc*",  don't discover certain OIDs, etc.)?


In NNM by default the discovery is not limited to certain devices, if you want to limit it to certain group of devices you have to create your custom filter with all you inclusions and exclusions and use this filter as discovery filter by the below steps:



Options menu

Network Polling Configuration

General tab

Use Discovery Filter

Select your filter
