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 CiscoWorks2000 CD One 1st Edition, see the "Performing a New Installation" section. If you are upgrading from any other 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 previous version of CD One, the data is preserved. However, during an upgrade from other 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.
