What Do I Do If eSight Cannot Discover Links Between Huawei and Cisco Network Devices

What Do I Do If eSight Cannot Discover Links Between Huawei and Cisco Network Devices

Question

eSight can discover links between Huawei devices or Cisco devices but cannot discover links between Huawei and Cisco devices. Why?

Answer

Links between Huawei devices are discovered through the LLDP protocol, while links between Cisco devices are discovered through the Cisco proprietary CDP protocol.

Huawei and Cisco devices cannot communicate with each other because they use different protocols, and eSight cannot discover links between them.

To enable eSight to discover links between Huawei and Cisco devices, run LLDP on Cisco devices.

  • If Cisco devices support the LLDP protocol, enable the LLDP protocol for the Cisco devices.
  • If the Cisco devices do not support the LLDP protocol, you can only manually create links.
