Starting with version 2.5 Cisco Works LMS uses a common database for all devices.
There are several methods of entering devices
1) Manually add them
2) Use auto discovery (remember to set a seed device - oh an this works best if you have CDP enabled)
#1) To manually add a device, log into Cisco works, go to Common Services => Device and Credentials => Device Management. Click the add button and input the information about your devices. Once completed you more then likely want to inventory the device to get information about it into your repository. To do this go to (main window) RME => Config Management => Archive Management. In the window that pops up choose "Sync Archive", pick the devices, give it a description and hit run.
#2) Go to Campus Manager => Administration. New window go to Admin => Device Discovery. You should get if from there but its a bit slower the doing #1.
