How to make Cisco 2960 Categorized as Router and Cisco Device

The customer has several Cisco Catalyst 2960 WS-C2960-48TT-L and 3560 switches. I discovered them using OpManager version 10.
All of them have been discovered as "Router" and "Cisco Device". This is a mistake...
The bigger problem now is that I need to open the routers list, check each device one by one to see if it is a Catalyst and change the template. ONE BY ONE.
Could you fix this problem and, may be, enhance a little the discovering process and the whole templates list?
It is outdated, incompleted, some time wrong, and in most cases it only show a small portion of interesting OIDs.
The solution:
We have default templates in OpManager for the Cisco Catalyst 2960 and 3560 Switches. Only when the device is not responding properly to the SNMP query during the discovery, we may have the improper categorization or the categorization not happening.
Anyhow, in order to change the category for the switches which you have added, you can go to Device Template-->Specific Device Template (Cisco Catalyst 2960)-->Apply the template to all the switches which are not categorized properly during the discovery and you don't have to change the category individually for the switches.
