CMS user tracking can not see servers behind FWSM?

Hi

We have CWLMS monitoring the network.

THe campus mgr user tracking seems to be working, but it can not show all the servers using FWSM as default gateway. (to be more precise, it can see the server MAC, but cant see the rest of info, e.g IP, hostname, etc)

Is this normal? Any workaround?

Thanks in advance!

It is normal since the FWSM does not support CDP, thus Campus Manager does not recognize it.

Only workaround it to have the ARP entries on a device that is properly managed by Campus Manager.

Thanks!

You mean hard code each server arp in one router (even in different subnet?)?

Wow that's really tedious.

Hope Cisco can add FWSM in the CMS device list.

Re: CMS user tracking can not see servers behind FWSM?

Another approach, though probably just as painful, is to use the fswm in transparent mode. The CDP could pass from device to router across the fswm as it bridges.

But building out the additional svi and dealing with the the possible spanning-tree issues might not be worth it. Guess it depends on the number of servers.
