Campus Manager Discovery requires CDP, ILMI, or ELMI to be enabled for it to automatically find devices. Since none of our firewall products support those technologies, Discovery will not find devices behind them.

As a workaround, you will need to add multiple seed devices: one on the inside of the firewall, and one on the outside. While the network will appear disjoint where the firewall is, you will find all other devices on both sides.

Thank You very much for your time and assistance. What about Nokia Firewall, it also doesn't support those technologies?

Thank you again and Kind Regards,

The same thing is true for any non-Cisco routing device.
