I believe the topology view in Campus Manager requires Layer 2 connectivity to exist in order to show network devices as connected. This is because it uses Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) to build its knowledge of adjacenies.


Hope this helps. Please rate this post if it does.

Given the connection type I understand you to have, Campus Manager will always show your branch office as logically unconnected.


You MAY be able to link the sites via a L2TP connection that would pass CDP, but that might have unintended consequences for the network services you are providing.
