GSS support in CiscoWorks

Answered Question
Oct 17th, 2008

Hi,

This is a question about CiscoWorks support for GSS...

If you look in this file:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/net_mgmt/ciscoworks_lan_management_solution/3.1/device_support/table/lms31sdt.html

You see that the GSS 4490 is listed but has no support for config management / inventory / software management - in fact really nothing seems to be supported. So, say I had a bunch of GSS 4491 and 4492 what could I expect to achieve with CiscoWorks? Are these models supported at all? And if they are supported would CiscoWorks bring any value?

thanks,

Andrew.

I have this problem too.

Yes you are right.

With GSS 2.x thats the only feature you get with CiscoWorks.

I was told that GSS v3 which will be out very soon has an expanded MIB that will enable management/monitoring using CW.

As per my knowledge the syslog format used by GSS is now compatible with CW (prviously it was not) but configuration modification

is not possible with CW.

Hi syed,

Are you saying that GSS 4491 and 4492 are supported in Ciscoworks? - but the only thing supported is syslog?

thanks,

Andrew.

Hi,

I just checked the release notes for v3 (it's already out) and there's nothing there yet. I'll take it up with our account team and see if there will ever be any support.

thanks,

Andrew.
