Path Insight 9 Ignore Interfaces (IgnoreList)

I am trying to remove down interfaces from Path Insight.  In PI8 I was able the run a batch job with the syntax below to perform the cleanup.  Something must have changed in PI9 as this syntax no longer captures any information.  Has anyone else had this issue and is there new syntax for bulk cleanup?

@copy IgnoreList.cfg IgnoreList(old).cfg
@del IgnoreList.cfg
@for /f "eol=; tokens=1,3" %%I in (SwitchMonitor.cfg) do CreateIgnoreList %%I %%J >> IgnoreList.cfg
@net stop PathInsight
@net start PathInsight

The createignorelist.exe from version 7 and 8 has been replaced by an IntDiscoveryTool.exe in PathInsight 9. Does it do what you need?

Here is the documentation. Does page 121 help "Ignoring Interfaces".

Unfortunately, no. What is referenced in documentation only works for small changes. I am trying to remove all downed interfaces in bulk. This is performed by running a batch job to build out the ignore list but the syntax that worked in PI8 does not work in PI9.

I think it might.  I don't see this tool listed in the documentation (how to set it up and when its run).  Did i miss it or is that forthcoming?
