Trying to filter out a specific type of device type, by host name, in
Currently all our tablets are known by
SLATEXXXXY, or in some cases, even
XXXX represents a location number, and
YY represents an iteration of tablet at that location. We are now fielding the next generation of tablets, which will be known by the new convention
Originally, in serverclass.conf we simply filtered by grabbing all tablets, by using
SLATE*. Now we are trying to create a whole new set of indexes and apps for the new devices, which means a new deployment app...but we can't just type
SLATE* any more.
So my question is, can I use a regex in
serverclass.conf? I have done some independent research and it appears that
...should work to sort out the right set of parameters to grab all the new tablet names (though I'm damned if i can get it to work in a simple search).
The bottom line is, will it work in
serverclass.conf, if I use it as a template to whitelist the new devices?
If not, what would work?
So it turn out that NO, you cannot use Regex in the serverclass.conf file, and in fact, you can't use the DOS wildcard expressions either.
So if you have
LAPTOP100-BR549.jr.samples.autosales.com LAPTOP101A.jr.samples.autosales.com LAPTOPL42D.Jr.samples.autosales.com LAPTOP8701-BR5.jr.samples.autosales.com LAPTOP549-JSAS.jr.samples.autosales.com
You can't use
[serverClass:JUNIORS_LAPTOPS] whitelist.0 = ^LAPTOP(\d+\S+\S)-(\S\S\S)$ blacklist.0 = ^LAPTOP(\d+\S)$
You can't even use a
To sort out specific, I had to use
just to get the ones which had a dash in them.
* (asterisk) like this
* All of these can be used with wildcards. * will match any sequence of characters. For example: * Match a network range: 10.1.1.* * Match a domain: *.splunk.com
