How to use the where clause and wildcard to filter results?

Explorer

Hi,

I am trying to run this search without success (the search runs however there are 0 results)

sourcetype=dhcplogs description=assign | replace ABC* with ABC in dest  | where dest!=ABC

Computers have hostnames in the format "ABC12345678". dest is the field that contains the hostname. I want to exclude these hosts (and other hosts) from the search results.

Any suggestions?

Cheers

Hi shiftey,

try something like this:

sourcetype=dhcplogs description=assign | replace ABC* with ABC in dest | where dest!="ABC"

The reason for this is, that where compares the value of two fields or does evaluate boolean expressions. Whereas search can do a wildcard filter like search foo!=bo*.

Hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS
