CiscoWorks upgrade path for Solaris

We are currently using LMS 1.1 on Solaris 2.8. I will be upgrading shortly to maintenance release LMS 1.2 to address issues we have been experieincing with version 1.1.

I see LMS 2.1 is available, but I believe it isn't covered under software suport (to upgrade for free).

Can someone supply me with the following informaiton:

1. How many releases are we behind while on version 1.1? And what were the release versions?

2. What is the cost associated with upgrading to LMS 2.1? We are currently a customer with an active support contract. I know I can contact my local sales guy, but thought since I was posing the other question I would throw this one in.

I am looking for these numbers to present to my management on how far we are behind the times.

Re: CiscoWorks upgrade path for Solaris should answer all of your upgrade related questions with CW2K and how to get the upgrade. It also contains the product bulletins for each bundle listing the details for the individual components included along with their versions. The latest is LMS 2.1 which contains CD-One 5th Edition, RME 3.4 etc. I believe that LMS 1.1 is not supported with Solaris 8

Re: CiscoWorks upgrade path for Solaris

Thank you. I will look at that link.

Solaris 8 is supported on 1.1, just not heavily documented.

Re: CiscoWorks upgrade path for Solaris

The current version of LMS is 2.1 It differs from 1.2 by the Device Fault Monitor. Usually the upgrade price would be half the full price, but that may depend on the country and the reseller. A CON-SAS contract with Cisco won't help any in this case as that excludes major release upgrades.
