You must have cdp running to get an accurate picture using ciscoworks. Campus Manager is where the associations (physical proximity) is collected and stored. If you go to Campus Manager-> Administration and look under the result column on the campus data collection row you'll have a hyperlinked "XXX Devices" if you click on that it will give you a list by ip address of the cdp neighbors of that device.
Conversely if you launch topology services and locate the appropriate vlan that contains your core device it you can right click and choose display view and it will show you lots more asscociated information about the core device and its associated neighbors like link types etc that can be exported to visio.
If ciscoworks has been able to properly discover your network it will follow the layer2 path of the traffic between the source and destination host ip addresses you provide and back so you can see if it follows the same route.
[toc:faq]The ProblemOn traditional switches whenever we have a trunk
interface we use the VLAN tag to demultiplex the VLANs. The switch needs
to determine which MAC Address table to look in for a forwarding
decision. To do this we require the switch to do...
[toc:faq]Introduction:Netdr is a tool available on a RSP720, Sup720 or
Sup32 that allows one to capture packets on the RP or SP inband. The
netdr command can be used to capture both Tx and Rx packets in the
software switching path. This is not a substitut...
IntroductionOSPF, being a link-state protocol, allows for every router
in the network to know of every link and OSPF speaker in the entire
network. From this picture each router independently runs the Shortest
