In Campus Manager, on-line help mentions that "If you do not specify the write community string for the specific target, the default value, public is used". So, if your RW string is not public, it will not cause any problems since the strings would not match any way.

The reason to use Cisco Works was the ability to generate inventory etc. without having to manually keep track of all devices. If we have to list all devices manually, that deters us from using the product. All the information Cisco Works provides we have been already gathering manually. At this point, the manual process seems more expeditious than maintaining the CW application.

We have been doing that prevoiusly and was looking for a way to maintain our device list automatically.
