Cisco Fabric Manager

Unanswered Question

Hi there,

I understand that Cisco Fabric Manager is supplied free on the product CD.

We have a Cisco MDS 9120 but no product CD and, therefore, no Cisco Fabric Manager.

Where can I download a copy, please?

If it's not available for download, can someone provide a copy, please?

Many thanks

I have the same problem, after upgrade my 9124 with OS Rel. 3.2.1 the FabManager is not longer available. I think Cisco must here provide Immediately to make the Fabric Manager for Download available, or bundle with the new OS release same in past by Rel. 3.1.x

Thank you for your response.

However, when I take your link and login, I get the following message:

This suggests that a user of Cisco equipment is not permitted to download software that should have been supplied with the equipment! What a company to deal with!

Depending on the verison of SAN-OS you have on the switch will depend on whether or not you have Fabric Manager on a CD or not. Cisco didn't start putting Fabric Manager on a separate CD until 3.2(1x). Before that, Fabric Manager was small enough to fit on the switch intself and it was downloaded from the switch. Try putting the switch IP address into a web browser and see if you see a download screen for Fabric Manager. If you see it there, you can download it. As the 91220 is an older switch, most likely a separate CD didn't come with it.

If you can't download it via the switch directly, depending on your CCO access you can download it directly from Cisco.

Thank you.
