    I run that zenpack across a thousand or so cisco devices, it does work but the older verison took some tweaking.  You do want the latest devadvanced details and you may need to tweak your transforms, depending on your setup.

    Make sure you actually have the appropriate monitoring templates in the class that the devices are in.  By default that pack installs the monitoring templates to /Network/Router/Cisco.  If you create an alternate class such as /Network/Switch/Cisco you need to copy the templates to it from the original location.  It monitors the components by polling for status, not by traps.  In fact, when you get the pack working you should just disable those traps or you'll get 2 events for every hardware failure.  Also, make sure you restarted Zenoss after you installed the pack (which should really be done after installing most packs).
