Viewing the Device Inventory Page
The Device Inventory page lists devices managed by Network Director and provides basic information about the devices, such as IP address and current operating status. The Device Inventory page is available in Build and Deploy mode and is the default landing page for Build mode.
The scope you have selected in the View pane and the network view that you have selected from the View selector determines which devices are listed in the Device Inventory page. For example:
If you are in the Logical View and select My Network, all devices managed by Network Director are listed.
If you are in the Datacenter View and select Network Devices under a data center, only the network devices that are part of that data center are displayed.
If you select a building in Location view, only those devices assigned to that building (including the floors and closets in the building) are listed.
If you select a wireless LAN controller, only that wireless LAN controller and any access points it manages are listed.
If you have configured access points using the Manage Access Point task but have not yet deployed the configuration on the wireless LAN controller, the Device Inventory page does not list those access points.
The Device Inventory page provides three pie charts that summarize the status of the devices in your selected scope:
Devices by Family—Indicates the proportion of devices in each device family.
Connection State—Shows the proportion of devices that are up or down. In this chart, Virtual Chassis count as one device.
Configuration State—Shows the proportion of devices in each configuration state. See the Config State entry in Table 1 for definitions of the configuration states.
Mouse over a pie segment to view the actual number of devices and the percentage represented by that pie segment.
