CSM needs to discover the devices to manage it.

Please add it as a network device in CSM.

I hope it helps.

Unless I'm mistaken it would appear that although CSM is installed alongside CiscoWorks Common Services and RME they are not very well "linked" together.

You would expect that the devices/credentials within the CS/RME would automatically be imported into CSM and that any configurations/inventories discovered by RME would again be pulled into CSM, but from what I've seen they are detached.

Whilst CSM obviously uses some elements of CiscoWorks Common Services and RME to perform its functions there are many elements not used or duplicated in CSM and thus not integrated.

It would appear that despite all the devices/credentials being in Common Services and configurations/inventories in RME that you still have to manually add the devices to CSM, manually add device credentials to CSM and get CSM to discover the configurations.

I've posted my concerns/issues with this in the following thread:

Hopefully someone who has been using CSM for much longer will respond and inform us of a feature to "properly" integrate all the functions!
