    How to order a global configuration to pass device discrepancy report

      Share This:

      Hello all,


      I'm currently having problems with a Cisco Nexus global device configuration item that the community might be able to help me with. The item in question shows up in different positions of the Running and Startup configuration and, although the lines are exactly the same, BNA indicates a false-positive discrepancy because of the different positioning. The image below illustrates the issue which I've been trying to solve.






      I've already attempted tweaking the device adapter "sortedCommands" section, using types single and block but with no success or visible change. Adding it to the "commentLines" section does make BNA ignore it and pass the discrepancy analysis but it leaves the door open for future oversight by the operations team.


      I've added below a snippet of the XML file but please let me know if the rest of it would help.
