End of Engineering for CiscoWorks Blue SNA View on Windows NT Platform

Introduction

Cisco Systems announces the End of Engineering (EOE) for CiscoWorks Blue SNA View on the Windows NT platform. This announcement is limited to only the SNA View product on Windows NT. This announcement does not impact SNA View on UNIX platforms (Solaris, HP-UX, and AIX) or any other products in the CiscoWorks Blue suite.

Overview

CiscoWorks Blue SNA View on Windows NT provides an easy-to-use Web interface that takes information provided by the end user and quickly highlights the probable cause of an SNA problem. Using its knowledge of Virtual Telecommunications Access Method (VTAM), Advanced Peer-to-Peer Networking (APPN), TN3270, Data-Link Switching (DLSw), and remote source-route bridging (RSRB) networks, SNA View presents a list of active and inactive SNA sessions that match search criteria. The user can select a specific session from this list, which provides a Web-based, color-coded view of all of the resources that are involved in the end-to-end connection. The likely cause of a session outage is highlighted with a red arrow that points to the resource icon. The user can then select any of the resource icons to activate hotlinks to other diagnostic tools, such as CiscoWorks2000 and CiscoView for Cisco devices and the HTML interface to Tivoli for
OS/390 for SNA resources.

Schedule and Products Affected

EOE for SNA View on Windows NT is effective as of December 12, 2001. Table 1 displays the product codes affected by this EOE announcement. These products are still orderable, but there are no plans for future enhancements.
