Hi Kevin.

Inventory of network assets has always been badly documented...

Devices discovered by the 'network discovery' task are not automatically 
added to the inventory, they are reported to the GLPI server, and 
processed according to import rules. So, if those devices don't appear 
in your assets list, they are probably waiting in some staging area for 
which I don't remember the exact name, nor do I remember how to access 
this area.

In order to inventory those device (meaning: collecting additional 
information), you have to first import them (either manually, from the 
staging area) or correct your import rules to automatically accept them 
next time (beware for duplicates...). Then you have to run a 'network 
inventory' task with them as target.

Additional information:

- http://fusioninventory.org/documentation/fi4g/importrules.html

The only additional knowledge you may want to add to the agent database 
is the SNMP SysObjectId value identifying each device model, in 
sysobject.ids file. However, its only purpose is to automatically 
populate the "model" field sent by the agent to the server on network 

Hope this helps.
