I'm trying to find the recommended hardware specifications for servers running LMS 3.0 (RME and Campus Mgr only) to support a network of 25,000 nodes.
I would also like to wrap a dollar figure around the software as I believe Cisco has a new licensing structure in place(RME and Campus
Recommendations and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
You will have to talk to your sales team for a dollar figure on LMS 3.0. Based on the number of devices you want to manage, you're looking at at least three licenses. I do not believe the SKUs have been worked out, but we are offering more than just restricted and unrestricted licenses in 3.0, so your configuration may be covered in one multi-server license.
For this configuration, I would recommend that each server be at least a dual processor box with 8 GB of RAM. Since you mentioned Solaris, and since Solaris is now free, go with 10 if you can (as 9 will be phased out before 10), and go with the UltraSPARC IV+ server line.
