CM - Topology Filter "PoE Devices" is not showing the correct devices.

What is the criteria for devices to be highlighted when you select the Topology Filter "PoE Devices" in the Network topology view in CM ?

Is it on device type or does the device need to respond on MIB queries on the POWER-ETHERNET-MIB ?

I have devices that don't have PoE, but they are highlight when I select the Topology Filter "PoE Devices" and I also have an 3560 that doesn't get highlighted (and it has PoE).

If I try to configure PoE on the 3560 from CiscoView, CiscoView has no problem with seeing it as an PoE Devices.

Can someone tell me how the Topology Filter "PoE Devices" are selecting devices ?

Best regards

The PoE filter is based on device type. The list of types are stored in NMSROOT/campus/main/filters/ These types correspond to the label type you see in Campus Manager.
