CiscoWorks interaction with other applications

<p>Does anybody know if CiscoWorks has any problem residing on a server with other applications, such as a network management software (sniffer).</p>

<p>I'm deploying a sniffer from Network Instruments.  It runs a console that is stood up on any x86 machine, and I was considering putting it on my CiscoWorks server just to have my tools all on one server.</p>

<p>Any gotcha's that anybody knows about?</p>

LMS is generally tested standalone.  We have, however, done some coexistence testing with HPOV NNM.  The server must have the resources to run both products.

The biggest issues with multiple applications on the same Windows server are resources, library conflicts, port conflicts, and network access issues.  If this sniffer is not going to introduce any of those, then it should work.
