Product Overview

CD One software, the foundation for CiscoWorks2000 family of products, enables the deployment, monitoring, and troubleshooting of devices across your network. CD One includes a web-server component, web-based tools, and web-browser capability. The functional components are:

CiscoView—A graphical device management tool

CiscoWorks2000 Server—Common set of management services shared by all CiscoWorks2000 products

Integration Utility—An integration module that provides support for third party network management systems (NMS)

CiscoWorks2000 Upgrade

If you are installing CiscoWorks2000 for the first time, see the "Performing a New Installation" section. If you are upgrading from a CiscoWorks2000 application, refer to your specific CiscoWorks2000 application installation guide for supported upgrade information and see the "Performing an Upgrade Installation" section.


Note During an upgrade from a CiscoWorks2000 applications, previous product versions are removed, but the database, ANI information, community strings, user and host information, and application-specific data files are preserved and will be restored during the new product version installations.


You must use the CD One installation program to perform upgrades. See the "Installing CD One" chapter.

Supported Devices

Cisco View, a major component of CD One, manages and configures different types of Cisco devices. Refer to Using CiscoView for supported device information.

Supported Network Management System Environments

You can import device information from both local and remote network management systems (NMS). You can import devices remotely from a UNIX system only. The NMS supported for importing device information into the CiscoView application is HP OpenView Network Node Manager. Refer to Using CiscoView and the online help for information about importing devices.
