Why my devices are in “All CDP Devices” category only?

All network devices that responds to SNMP queries are being placed in “All SNMP Devices” category,

furthermore Nectus tries to obtain list of all CDP neighbors from SNMP enabled devices and  tries to communicate

to all CDP neighbors via SNMP. If CDP neighbor does not answer to SNMP queries is is being placed in “ALL CDP Devices”

category. So devices in “ALL CDP devices” category support CDP but don’t support (or answer) to SNMP queries.

Some of the devices that are normally seen in “ALL CDP devices” category: IP Phones, LWAP Access Points.

All devices with misconfigured or disabled SNMP  will appear there as well.
