The following are examples of regular expression pattern combinations that SolarWinds NCM could use to exclude lines in comparing selected configurations:

^! Last

Ignores the !Last Configuration change line in Cisco configurations.

^ntp clock-period

Ignores the ntp clock-period line in Cisco configurations.

^wlccp ap username cisco

Ignores the wlccp line in Cisco access point configurations.

Exclusions specified with regular expressions are global, and used for all comparison operations throughout SolarWinds NCM, including scheduled jobs.
