I have DFM 1.2 with IDU 1.2.3 installed, that supposedly adds new device support for 3745s. What level of 'support' is provided? What does 'supported device mean? I have added 5 3745s which don't appear in any default groups in the Admin Console or in Polling & Thresholds. The only way I could find them was by searching for IP Instances. Browsing each IP Instance object showed that the Type value = router, but they don't appear in the Routers group. I tried creating a new polling Group by copying the Routers polling group, making it higher priority than the Routers Group, and then using a matching criteria of SystemObject ID= .220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168.436 (ie a 3745), and reconfiguring, but these devices still don't appear as 'visibly' manageable devices.
