Can coming version have facility to include importing of file (excel, notepad, word etc) to exclude multiple MAC address from Unmanaged detector? Currently only MAC address can be added at a time. It would be tedious to add one by one if end user have some hundred machines.

Yes it's pretty much impossible to manage 400-700 printers and other types of devices that will never have SEP installed and need excluded.

It is very short-sighted of Symantec to not allow admins to import large lists of IP and MAC combinations to exclude from unmanaged detectors.

Unmanaged Detector so far is a galactic FAIL.

Actually, it is outright insane that there's no way to enter MAC or IP addresses aside from typing them in one at a time BY HAND!

Frankly, I'd like to see TWO ways to get exclusions added:

  • Bulk add via a delimited text file
  • Right click or radio button to select directly from the "Unknown Device Failures" in the Security Status Details report.

Heck, even just being able to copy-and-paste from the report to the Exclusion list would be a HUGH improvement!!
