3Com Network Director V2.0 Discovery Problems

  I purchased a copy of 3Com Network Director V2.0 for a customer about 8 months ago. They are using 4228G and 4250T switched. The network discovery is about a big of a disaster as I have ever seen. Core switches either disappear or turn to clouds, workstations show up as having multiple NICS installed linking to seperate switches, etc, etc.

   I have opened up several cases with 3Com but I would have had more luck getting help from my dog. Does anybody have any hands on with Network Director and their discovery service? Would I have been better off throwing my money away? Thanks!

I have used/installed Network Director at 5+ sites with little issue.  I think your switches turning to clouds and back again along with multiple links is due to either a corrupt database or network/server instability.  Have you tried re-installing?  What are the specs on the machine?  I have seen similar issues with only 1 Gig or less of memory.
