Sometimes ciscoworks "sees" a link because of a match in it CDP table.


It's possible that one device see a cdp neighbor on it interface with s sysname that matches the name of the other device.


This is why you should have unique sysname/hostname on all devices.


If you don't understand send a show cdp neighbor of both machines and I will try to explain.


Cheers
