Grouping hosts for serverclass.conf

Explorer

Hi all,

I have a general question on saving some space and grouping hosts in serverclass.conf. I have reviewed This from 2012, but doesn't exactly cover what I'm looking for and I am aware of the answer supplied. I'm wondering if the same applies to the below for grouping hosts.

Example:
whitelist.0 = host10
whitelist.1 = host11

Question:
whitelist.0 = host1[0-1]

Thanks in advance,

I have implemented this 30m ago and it does work as intended. If there is a range of hosts (EG: host01-host20) and you only need inputs from host10 and host 11, then the below works.

whitelist.0 = host1[0-1]

Yes, you can use regular expressions in whitelist and blacklist settings.
Why are you worried about saving space? serverclass.conf typically is not that large.

There is about 400+ entries under this particular stanza, any which way I can save some space for easy reading or visibility is a win.

To be clear, I was aware I could do host01.....05 as host0[1-5]
However, was not certain of host10...15 as host1[0-5]

Was able to test and confirm- Thanks for the help!
