A. Two new hardware platforms called the Cisco Network Secure Servers*. These new servers bring scalability improvement as they are based on the powerful Cisco UCS® C220 Rack Server platform and configured to support the Cisco Identity Services Engine* (ISE), Network Admission Control (NAC), and Access Control System (ACS) security applications. The multiuse Cisco Secure Network Servers offer many improvements over current ISE, ACS, and NAC appliances, and are the platform recommended to deploy newer versions of these applications. During ordering, customers can specify which security application they would like to have installed. See the Product Details section for more information.
On the other hand, in the 1.1.x release notes it's stated, that the HW is supported in the current 1.1.4 release
Cisco ISE, Release 1.1.4 provides support for the Cisco SNS 3400 Series appliance. For details on the installing and configuring the Cisco SNS 3400 Series appliance, refer to the ISE 1.1.4 Installation Guide at the following location:
What is true now? What HW appliance do I chose, if I want to order today?
I don't want to order the old appliances (33xx), because they are already EoL announced:
Be aware that the pre-loaded config of ISE isn't correct. The interfaces are wrong, hell i even got a wrong bootloader. The bootloader changed when installing the ISO 1.1.4.
As said 1.1.4 is compatible with the new SNS appliances.Download the iso and burn a DVD. Just use a portable DVD drive to get everything working. I also got problems with the script that Cisco published for the "ISO-to-USB" procedure. Script is failing in every way ;-) So burning a DVD saves you the time. If you got the fix please inform us
Re: Secure Network Servers (SNS) in ISE version 1.1.4
Cisco ISE software is packaged with your appliance or image for installation. Cisco ISE, Release 1.2 is shipped on the following platforms. After installation, you can configure Cisco ISE with specified component personas (Administration, Policy Service, and Monitoring) or as an Inline Posture node on the platforms.
7Memory allocation of less than 4GB is not supported for any VMware appliance configuration. In the event of a Cisco ISE behavior issue, all users will be required to change allocated memory to at least 4GB prior to opening a case with the Cisco Technical Assistance Center.
