PCM 2.322 reloads Switch with old Configfiles

When the service "HP ProCurve Network Manager Server" on the management server with PCM 2.322 (update 13) starts, some switches get an outdated old configfile and are reloading.

How can i get shot of these jobs?

Re: PCM 2.322 reloads Switch with old Configfiles

Could you tell me more about how PCM has been configured? By default, PCM will never update a switch's config file. It will only scan switches and save their configuration in the DB.

PCM must be explicitely configured to update a device's configuration and you must define the configuration used to update the device.

In Tools/Preferences/Configuration Management the values are default. In general the switches are configured with the cli (telnet/ssh). But i suppose my colleague had used the ConfigManagerTools CLI to change some values. And these changes come back every time the Service ist started. There must be an "orphan job", but it it not visible with PCM.
