Exclude Agents without using -DExcludeAgents option
I've excluded some Pega agents that are not needed on our applications by using the -DExcludeAgents option (so I cannot see all these agents on SMA).
But I've added option -DNodeType and agents were not excluded anymore. I've raised a ticket on GCS and I've learned that it's not possible to have both options -DNodeType and -DExcludeAgents: I can use either one of them and not both together.
So, for now, I've only used -DNodeType.
The only way to not see the none used agents is to go on each Data-Agent-Queue Instance and uncheck the box "Enable this agent": it will take a lot of times and in case of a new instance, I will have to do these steps again.
Do you know another way to manage them easily ?

For each RAQ, 4 DAQ instances have been created by the master agent.
If I define a customized node type 'Custom3', a new DAQ instance will be created by the master agent but all olders DAQ instances will still be present and enabled, no? If it's the case, I will have to disable each DAQ and I've more than 140 DAQ instances to disable ....
But, of course, your proposal will be helpfull for new nodes that I will create (just need to define the node type to 'Custom3' and start the instance).
