Cisco for Identifying Uplink ports

We have 1800 switches in our network. I need to locate which port on whitch switch is used as an uplink port. We uses only Cisco Swtiches. Is it possible to use CiscoWorks for this task? How?

Try using SolarWinds' switchport mapper. Any port with more than 1 mac/IP address is an uplink

Great tool to help document your entire network

If you have CDP enabled on all switches, Ciscoworks should be able to find them all and link them together on a map for you using a seed device. Which version of Ciscoworks?

yes, ciscoworks should work, if not, you should be able to go into one of your switches and do the following

enable
config t
show cdp neighbors

if you have cdp enabled on all switches, this should display all of the switches in your network, and what ports are being used as uplinks
