Is there a way to import cisco icons and have them provide the same status indications when using standard solarwinds icons. i.e it goes red when device is down. The SolarWinds Map Maker update in Version 7.1 will allow copy and paste of device icons directly from Visio (or other graphics programs). I’ve made my own icons for routers, switches etc. I saved them as .wmf (just as those icons in the Map Maker Icon folder) with Paint Shop Pro and imported them into the same folder as the ‘old’ icons. But they didn’t look like those I’ve made, they din’t have the same colours. They where for example black instead of different green colours. Have anyone got an idea why? It has to be possible to show more than one colour. One of the only tools that I’ve found which will properly save (export) to a .wmf is Adobe Illustrator. The .wmf is a vector format, and most drawing packages are raster (pixel) based. When a raster based program saves to a .wmf format, they simply encapsulate a bitmap image surrounded by a ‘vector box’. This sorta works, but it’s a cheap fix and usually doesn’t scale correctly. I have used Adobe Photoshop to create the intial drawing, then open it in Illustrator, have it convert to vector, and export to .wmf – this seems to work well, but avoid gradiant shading and stay with simple shapes.

I saved them in the C:Program FilesSolarwindsNetwork Performance Monitor V7MapsNetObjectsScalableDevices directory. The colours look a little funny in the Map Maker app, but once save in a map and viewed in a web browser, they look fine and change colour correctly. In our case we have used the Cisco Visio stnecils and exported them as GIFs (with the appropriate color scheme for up, down, etc.). However, some work and some don’t. For example our 7206, 5400, etc work fine, but our 2950 or 3500 series switches do not. I have managed to copy-paste Cisco images from Visio with reasonable success. In addition, I have used MS Office Picture Manager which exports WMF to GIF/JPEG very nicely. Source.
