New and Changed Information


As of Cisco DCNM Release 5.2, Cisco Fabric Manager and Cisco Data Center Network Manager for LAN are merged into one unified product called Cisco Data Center Network Manager (DCNM) that can manage both LAN and SAN environments. As a part of this product merger, the name Cisco DCNM for SAN replaces the name Cisco Fabric Manager.

The following documentation changes support the merged Cisco DCNM product:

Cisco DCNM product documentation for Cisco DCNM Release 5.2 is retitled with the name Cisco DCNM for LAN.

Cisco Fabric Manager product documentation for Cisco DCNM Release 5.2 is retitled with the name Cisco DCNM for SAN.

Cisco DCNM for SAN product documentation is now published to the Data Center Network Manager listing page on Cisco.com: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps9369/tsd_products_support_configure.html

This URL is also the listing page for Cisco DCNM for LAN product documentation.

Cisco Fabric Manager documentation for software releases earlier than Cisco DCNM Release 5.2, retains the name Cisco Fabric Manager and remains available at its current Cisco.com listing page:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps10495/tsd_products_support_configure.html

You should continue to use the Cisco Fabric Manager documentation if you are using a release of Cisco Fabric Manager software that is earlier than Cisco DCNM Release 5.2.

The name DCNM-SAN is used in place of Cisco DCNM for SAN in the user interface of Cisco Data Center Network Manager; likewise, the name DCNM-LAN is used in place of Cisco DCNM for LAN in the user interface. To match the user interface, the product documentation also uses the names DCNM-SAN and DCNM-LAN.

The following new publications support both Cisco DCNM for LAN and DCNM for SAN, and address the new licensing model, the new installation process, and the new features of Cisco DCNM:
