device type unknown for cat-4500E

Unanswered Question
Jan 7th, 2009

We are running LMS 2.5.1 and have not updated the Device types in a while, waiting to purchase LMS3.

In the meantime, catalyst 4500E are being added to the network and they are not being archived by LMS 2.5.1 because the Device type is "unknown".

Could you please tell me which device update packages i should install to make this work? and if there are package dependencies and I should install more than 1?

When a CSS 11501, 11503 or 11506 device running WebNS 7.4 or later

was added to DFM, it was listed as an Unknown device type.

This problem no longer occurs if DFM 2.0.4 is installed. You can download and install
