Product Description

These release notes are intended for use with Cisco Security Manager UCS Server Bundles.

Updates to these release notes, if any, are available on Cisco.com at the following URL: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6498/prod_release_notes_list.html.

Cisco Security Manager UCS Server Bundles ("Bundle") is not an appliance. It is a software and hardware bundle that was developed by Cisco Systems, Inc., for users of Cisco Security Manager 4.1. In brief, the Bundle consists of a Cisco UCS C210 M2 server on which has been installed Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Service Pack 1 and Cisco Security Manager 4.1.


Note Two hardware configurations are available for this Bundle. However, these release notes (and all the documentation referred to in them) applies to both of the available hardware configurations. The two hardware configurations are low-end (16 GB Cisco UCS C210 M2) and high-end (24 GB Cisco UCS C210 M2).


Cisco recommends that you read these release notes and the documentation that you will find packed in your shipping carton along with your new Bundle itself, especially the poster titled "Cisco UCS 200 and Cisco UCS 210 Servers."

Also, please be sure to refer to the "Related Documentation" section of these release notes and to check Cisco.com periodically for updates in the technical documentation for this Bundle.

Deployment Mode—Standard Only; No HA or DR

The Bundle is meant for standard deployment only: It does not provide support for high availability (HA) mode or disaster recovery (DR) mode; those modes require the installation of Veritas, which is not part of this bundle.
