This chapter describes the factors that you should consider before installing
CD One on a Solaris system. It contains:
CD One software, the foundation for the CiscoWorks2000 family of products and other Cisco product families, enables the deployment, monitoring, and troubleshooting of devices across your network. CD One includes:
•CiscoView—A graphical device management tool
•Common Management Foundation (CMF)—A set of shared application services
•CMF Base Desktop—A subset of the CMF components
•Integration Utility—An integration module that provides support for third party network management systems (NMS)
CD One Upgrade
The minimum system requirements for installing CD One are shown in Table 1-2.
Table 1-2 Server System Requirements1
Requirement Type Minimum Requirements
•Sparc Ultra 10.
•17-inch color monitor.
256 MB (all CD One components).
Available drive space
•2 GB on the partition on which you install the product (the default is /opt).
•Swap space equal to the amount of memory (RAM). For example, if your system has 256 MB of RAM, you need 256 MB of swap space.
Solaris 2.6 or Solaris 2.7
Additional software (Optional)
Netscape Navigator 4.7 (if you are using the desktop on the server system).
1 Minimum requirements vary, depending on which components you choose to install:
Integration Utility alone requires 128 MB RAM and 50 MB disk space.
CiscoView alone requires 128 MB RAM and 96 MB disk space.
To verify the amount of available disk space in each of the specified partitions and directories, enter:# df -k directory
where directory is the partition or directory for which you want to check the available disk space.
Table 1-3 lists the required and recommended patches for Solaris 2.6 and 2.7.
Use the showrev -p command to verify that these patches have been applied.
Caution Make sure patch 106292-03 is not installed on your system. Otherwise CD One will not install.
CiscoView, 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
The network management system (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.
Note Please stop HP OpenView before installing CD One, then restart HP OpenView after you've installed CD One.
