We are incorporating CiscoWorks and I am trying to perform the initial discovery of devices. While we are still running Foundry FastIron core switches, I try to use some of our Cisco routers and switches as seed devices, but never seem to get one hop past them. For example, I use a switch that has several other switches connected to it, all of which have APs on them. I can only see the other switches, but not the APs. When I use the next hop switches as my seed devices, then the APs show up in the discovery. I have checked my SNMP settings, as well as retry and hop count settings. No matter what I set them at, it has no affect. Only when I add seed devices from down-stream on the network does the discovery count increase.
Also, does CiscoWorks discover routing/switching devices other than Cisco? Could our Foundry core pair be screwing things up?
Additionally, I can not see anything across our DSL & MPLS WAN links. Some of those devices are Nortel equipment.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
