Is there a document that gives a better technical explanation of the discovery process? The
documentation I've found so far is fairly superficial.
I'm testing discovery with a new LMS 3.2 installation and so far it seems like I will have to enter every IP subnet we have in a ping sweep, because devices just aren't getting discovered. I tried CDP alone with one seed - a router at the hub of our network. I tried discovery with that one seed router with both CDP and Routing Table - I would expect that to discover other devices via the subnets in the routing table. That's not what happened, so I'm wondering how the "Routing Table" module actually works.
If we don't have CDP everywhere, will devices without CDP be discovered?
Finally, I've seen a number of comments here that say not to use the DCR as a seed file. I must be missing something, because I would think that you'd want to do a discovery starting with what you already have to find out what's been added to it, without having to tell the app where to look. That seems to defeat the purpose of discovery.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
