CPI and LMS

Hello,

I'm not very familiar with Cisco Prime Infrastructure or LMS.

I would like to use the application to manage wired devices such as routers and switches and, in a future phase, wireless devices.

I understand CPI allows me to monitor my devices but I'm not sure if I can configure them, for example, what if I need to configure a port, a vlan, or anything, is it possible to do this with CPI?

I also see that getting CPI will include a license for LMS, can both of those applications be installed on the same appliance server?

Thanks.

CPI and LMS

Hi Daniel,

LMS and PI cannot be Installed on the same appliance server.

LMS must be installed in a separate VM or an a UCS server or physical NCS appliance alone.

As per me , you can start the Cisco Prime LMS for now as your focused is to manage the LAN device currently and in future when you plan to manage wireless devices , you can start using  PI . I hope by then we should have compelte data migration from LMS to PI.

Thanks-

Afroz
