All you need to do is place in the seedfile this particular item:
!@oid 1.3.6.???? the OID is for the printer
If you know the IP address of the printer, you can exclude it by doing:
!188.8.131.52 # NOTE: Whatever the IP of the printer
But I would recommend exclusion by OID not IP because less entries in the
seedfile and you can exclude all OIDs at once.
Lastly, after you make the entry in the seedfile, make sure that you delete
the device off the map. Perform a LOCATE --> OBJECTS --> By Attribute,
then choose SNMP SysObjectID and then type in the HP OID information.
Then proceed to delete all of the OIDs associated with the HP Jet Direct and
they shouldn't be rediscovered.
I hope this helps,

Subject: [NV-L] Limit
Is there an easy way to keep Netview from discovering the HP
more specifically JetDirect cards?. We have added the "!@oid 0" in
seed file which eliminated the non-smnp workstation devices but the
printers are still being discovered no matter what the community
set to or what we add to the seedfile.
92 SNMP ifPhysAddr
93 SNMP ifDescr "HP ETHERNET
MULTI-ENVIRONMENT,ROM A.03.15,JETDIRECT,JD24,EEPROM A.05.05"
We are running Netview 5.1.2 with AIX 4.2.1
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
