Layer 2 devices in Path Analysis


Campus version 3.2 Path Analysis is not showing all the interconnected layer 2 devices.

My customer has 5 x 3500 switches connected to each other - daisy chained . If he starts a trace form one end to the other it only displays the two end devices and nothing in between. Any ideas?


Re: Layer 2 devices in Path Analysis

You need to take a look at the list of supported devices and the minimum software required.

Please refer to the document 'Supported Devices for Campus Manager 3.2' at the URL

Do also look at the document 'Release Notes for Campus Manager 3.2 on Windows 2000' under the section known problems. This document can be found at:

Hope this helps.

Re: Layer 2 devices in Path Analysis

Thanks for the info. All the devices are supported in path analysis. What I have noticed is that if one of the end devices is a router then it shows all the switches in between – layer 2 and layer 3. As soon as you only do a path analysis between only layer 2 devices it does not work properly. My question is will path analysis only work with a router in the path – displaying the interconnected layer 2 devices? And also am I correct in saying that path analysis uses CDP to do the discovery of connected devices and if so it should display all the connected devices in its path?
