My answer is more of a thought than a fact I know.
The PIX may not be discoverable via "cdp neighbor" possibly as a security feature so it cannot be found by anyone seeking access into your network. If CiscoView uses Cisco's cdp to discover devices throughout the network this would make the PIX undiscoverable.
We may be talking apples and oranges here. CiscoView does not discover devices. The discovery component of CiscoWorks is the Campus Manager. Keep in mind that Campus Manager discovers networks using two mechanisms: CDP and ILMI (if you have an ATM network).
The PIX does not support CDP (or ILMI) and therefore won't be discovered by Campus Manager.
If I am incorrect, someone please let me know. Hope this helps.
I'm having the same problem with a PIX 515 and Ciscoview (with CW 2000/RME installed). When I login to Ciscoworks, highlight my 515, and device discovery begins, it comes back with "unsupported device".
The PIX device package for CiscoView only seems to support the PIX 506 and I haven't had any luck getting CiscoView to work with my 515 :( .. Has anyone had success with this?
