The LMS deployment guide whitepapers can be found at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/cscowork/ps2425/prod_white_papers_list.html . You need to enable SNMP (either v1/v2c or v3) on all devices you wish to manage with LMS. It is recommended to pick seed devices that are core switches (i.e. that have a lot of CDP neighbors). Since DeviceDiscovery is multi-threaded, it can start discovering multiple devices on the network at once.
