we are using cisco prime infrastructure 2.0. Is it possible to manage third party devices? (We have a lot of Enterasys Switches)

When i want to Archive the config of the device there is an error --> No Device Package found for the specific device.

It is necessary to install device packages for third party devices? Where can i find and install these packages?

Thx in advance

Hi Marco

As i know for third party devices only snmp polling, snmp traps and syslog will work.

Config archive will not work. Device packages are only for cisco devices.

Is this a feature in the roadmap for future releases?

it seems not to be on the road-map according to the functional /feature comparison between LMS and PI 2.0:


...and I doubt it will come (quickly) because config management has a lot of pitfalls and Cisco has a lot to do to get around all of them with their own devices..

However, Inventory Management for third party devices is on the road-map
