When looking at the network map in Oneview - switches don't show the link when using the management port - is there a way to have oneview display those links?

The links are detected based on CDP (Exteme, Enterasys, Cabletron Proprietary), EDP, and LLDP.

As far as i know EXOS does not support LLDP or EDP in Management ports

Here is an detailed article on how the links are formed in OneView.

In case if you would like to create manual links for management ports it is possible from EMC 8.0
Here is an article on how to create manual links between devices.

I hope this helps!
