Could you please provide us with following info:

- What models of IP Phones you are planing to discover?

- Is there any Cisco network management systems within the company?


In UCMDB CI stands for Configuration Item. Any object in IT world - server, software, process, resource.

Node in UCMDB is a Configuration Item Type (AKA CIT) , a group if you want joining all computer systems represented on the network.

Hope this helps...
