For users of CM 4.0- Importing into Visio

I'm in the process of upgrading to Campus Manager 4.0 and I would like to know whether this version, unlike the 3.3, let you import the network plot into Visio and rebuild it automatically.

As shown below, the CM 4.0 release notes suggest this is possible.

"If you export a Topology map as a Visio drawing,

it is not imported cleanly into Microsoft Visio.

Links are drawn out of place, and some incorrect

links appear to be drawn between devices.

Workaround:

Clean the Visio drawing manually after import."

Re: For users of CM 4.0- Importing into Visio

In Campus 4.0, the Visio export can be done to XML, and does contain each node's IP address. I suppose it would be possible to have Visio try and clean up the topology on its own, but I have not tried this.

Re: For users of CM 4.0- Importing into Visio

AFAIK the functionality of visio to go out and see if it's model matches the reality was not continued since the very old versions of visio.

Think it was an addon you should buy.

Now that the export of ciscoworks finaly works again with a still supported version of visio the results should be acurate.

If not cisco should get their act together and fix it. Ciscoworks is nowadays presented as a documentation tool. (By the european productmanager)

Cheers,

Michel
