Preface


This preface describes the document conventions and related documentation for the Cisco EnergyWise IOS Configuration Guide.

This guide does not describe how to install your network device. For information, see the hardware installation guide for your device.

For information about the Cisco IOS Release commands, see the Cisco IOS documentation set on Cisco.com.

This guide does not provide detailed information on the GUIs for the embedded Device Manager or for Cisco Network Assistant (hereafter referred to as Network Assistant), which you can use to manage the domain member. However, the concepts in this guide are applicable for the GUI user. For information about the Device Manager, see the domain member online help. For information about Network Assistant, see Getting Started with Cisco Network Assistant, available on Cisco.com.

This guide does not provide specific information for the management application programming interface (MAPI) and endpoint software development kit (SDK). For more information, see the Cisco EnergyWise Documentation Roadmap, Cisco EnergyWise Partner Development Guide, Cisco EnergyWise Programmer Reference Guide for the Management API, and the Cisco EnergyWise Programmer Reference Guide for the Endpoint SDK on the Cisco Developer Network:
http://developer.cisco.com/web/esdk/home.

For the supported device list, see the release notes on Cisco.com.

Document Conventions

This guide uses these conventions to convey instructions and information:

For command descriptions

Commands and keywords are in boldface text.

Arguments for which you supply values are in italic.

Square brackets ([ ]) mean optional elements.

Braces ({ }) group required choices, and vertical bars ( | ) separate the alternative elements.

Braces and vertical bars within square brackets ([{ | }]) mean a required choice within an optional element.

For interactive examples:

Terminal sessions and system displays are in screen font.

Obtaining Documentation and Support on the Cisco Developer Network

Cisco EnergyWise development partners can access the Cisco EnergyWise documents, MAPI and SDK software code, and Cisco IOS software by joining the Cisco Developer Network:
http://developer.cisco.com/web/esdk/home.

You need a support contract and license to access Cisco EnergyWise resources on the Cisco Developer Network and on TAC. The business development manager who registered your licence must set up your Cisco.com account with the appropriate access privileges.

The forum, wiki, and other resources on the Cisco Developer Network provide a self-help knowledge base and community for Cisco EnergyWise application developers and programmers. You can get additional support by opening a case in the TAC Service Request Tool:
http://tools.cisco.com/ServiceRequestTool/create/launch.do.
