Cisco Switching auto discovery ports



Hi All,

when I discover a switch it only finds the UP ports, is there a easy way to find them all from stage one, rather than doing a new discovery now and then ?

New interfaces will initially be created if the traffic counters are not zero. If the ports of the device were not used yet or reset, they can only be added manually or via new auto-discoveries.

Best regards
