Cross-posting here (it's in the security forum too) to get the LMS perspective. Plus this forum seems to be more heavily trafficked. ;-)
Any folks with both LMS & CSM... what's your experience been like with integration?
Do you prefer to have CSM slave its DCR to LMS? Use LMS's RME vs a separate one, or split it out into separate un-integrated DCRs?
e.g. one-DCR-to-rule-them-all, or just R/S in LMS, PIX/ASA/FWSM/IDSM/MARS in CSM. or not. or something else. or or or ...
Pros? Cons? What is gained/what is lost?
Consider the workload of maintaining two distinct inventories (not to mention two revs of the LMS backend (CS, RME) since CSM isn't up to par with the v3.1 LMS guts), the loss of integrated event repositories, duplication of RSAC, confused user experience with two GUIs, etc.
I'm trying to make a decision as to which way to go. If you've been-there-done-that, could you share your experience.
