CiscoWorks Campus Manager or ANI server not discovering??

CiscoWorks Campus Manager or ANI server not discovering??

CiscoWorks Campus Manager or ANI server not discovering??

Hi - I'm a newbie to CW2k- got a question regarding new devices, and how Campus Manager is supposed to know about them.

I believe that the CiscoWorks ANI server may not be discovering correctly-

The customer has configured all SNMP/telnet/enable on each of their switches- but they have two problems.

(1) Some (but not all?) MAC addresses are out of date in the Campus Manager
and (2) I think the new switches aren't being found...

I was manually adding the switches to their RME, and that's worked fine- but Campus Manager appears not to know the switches-
ANI Server seems as if it'd be involved, based on the following info from another forum here, but I'm not sure how I could diagnose if the ANI server isn't discovering for some reason...

I found useful information posted by: fmonteiro in the following Tek forum:
Campus Manager and RME device update possible !!! no hp nmb !
Thread63-600028 was what told me that ANI server sends info to RME, not the other way round (by default), and that ANI server _should_ autodiscover switches with the correct SNMP config in them-

I can telnet to the switches from the CiscoWorks server, and find them in DNS, but no go on finding MAC addresses or IP addresses in those switches in Campus Manager...
