LMS 3.1, Nexus 7010, "Associated Router"

Unanswered Question
Apr 13th, 2010

We are in the process of replacing our core routers with 2 pairs of Nexus 7010 (running version 4.2.3) devices, that have been running in parallel to the existing infrastructure for a while.


While looking in CiscoWorks LMS user tracking, we see end hosts associated with other routers but none with these two pairs.


Since the "associated routers" are where CM gets the ARP information on the hosts, I have a few questions.


First, is Nexus supported in this concern? I looked at the supported device table (http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/net_mgmt/ciscoworks_lan_management_solution/3.1/device_support/table/lms31sdt.html#3.0.1-7), it has an "N/A" in the "User Tracking" column, which doesn't seem to answer my question here.


Second, if this is supported, are there anything special that one has to do or to configure LMS to make it work? I did check the 2 pairs of devices and they are managed by CM.


Thanks!

The Nexus devices are managed as storage switches currently by Campus Manager.  Therefore, they will not be used to collect ARP information.  The Nexus is supported by Campus Manager, but not by User Tracking right now.  Support is planned for LMS 4.0 due out in July of this year.

Is it also planned to bring Nexus 7k UT support to LMS3.x via CM device package update or CM service pack?


We have this problem with LMS3.2 as well.

At this point, we still need instrumentation on the Nexus to enable UT support.  When this is done, LMS can be updated.  I have not heard of any plans to add this support to LMS 3.2, but that does not mean it will not happen.
