Re: Cisco Prime & Lms

You'd get a lot more views for this question on the Network Management forum.

In any case, PI 1.2 (2.0 is the curent version) is the product Cisco is positioning for wireless (successor to WCS and NCS) and wired (successor to LMS) infrastructure management. However it hasn't yet reached feature parity with LMS so they are including licenses for customers to continue to use both if they so desire. The products are mutually exclusive and must be run on separate servers.

Please refer to the following pages for more info:

Whitepapers including PI-LMS functional comparison and PI Deployment Guide

LMS Design Guide (title says Prime Infrastructure but it's actually LMS)

LMS 4.1 (not just) for Dummies

Also search youtube for Cisco Prime. There is a series of VODs the product team did on use cases.
