This is not possible. You can, however, export the map to Visio, then draw a more complete topology there.

Thanks very much for your response

but that is not good, what about PIX firewalls will they only show up as unconnected devices?

Correct. PIX, ASA, and FWSM devices are not supported by Campus Manager since they do not support CDP.

Hi Joe,

thanks very much for your help.

I had just spent the last hour trying to find this information on the Cisco website.

I have to say im not impressed.

This is really a big pain and a bottleneck with LMS platform. Cisco should do something to support these Cisco devices or add it manually and gte SNMP managed. Why should one not have a whole network view when everything is Cisco, I am not convinced.

Hi guys,

I'm new to LMS but was wondering if it has a dynamic view of the topology? So if I were to power off a device or disconnect a link, will this be reflected dynamically in the topology map? I've gotten email alerting to work fine though. Is this at all possible?
