Cisco ISE NFR - Is Services NFR image pre-configured??


We have received the ISE NFR kit. With the kit, we have received the ISE-NFR Image, Services NFR Image and NFR Configuration Guide (comprising of dhcp.conf, ISE Config Guide, ISE NFR configs (ASA, Switch Config)).

I went through the Configuration guide, and it gives the initial setup of VMware ISE Setup and Services NFR Setup.

As per the configuration guide, Services NFR is Linux machine with pre-configured services including DHCP, DNS, NTP, HTTP, OPEN LDAP and CA., I would like to know how to use the Services NFR with ISE NFR without using additional Active Directory Setup?

I have the COLD Lab guides for Cisco ISE, but I cannot use those guides with ISE-NFR because it requires the additional Active Directory for user creation and testing, and CA Setup.

I would like to know if there are any guides or scenarios to work with ISE-NFR and Services NFR.

Thank you in advance.

Yes, the Services NFR machine

Yes, the Services NFR machine is pre-configured.  OpenLDAP and CA are already running.


You can verify this by opening the Terminal and going to su mode.

Now, adding users and configuring accounts is FAR more involved.  I suggest you start here:

Similar for the CA:


I hope this helps
