Introduction to Cisco Data Center Network Manager
Cisco Data Center Network Manager (DCNM) is a management system for the Cisco Unified Fabric. It enables you to provision, monitor, and troubleshoot the data center network infrastructure. It provides visibility and control of the unified data center. Cisco DCNM provides a comprehensive feature set that meets the routing, switching, and storage administration needs of data centers. Cisco DCNM streamlines the provisioning for the unified fabric and monitors the SAN and LAN components. Cisco DCNM provides a high level of visibility and control through a single web based management console for Cisco Nexus, Cisco MDS, and Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) products. During the DCNM installation, you can choose install applications related to Unified Fabric only for Unified Fabric-mode installations.
Cisco DCNM LAN Thick Client has been omitted from release 10.0.x. Now you can perform the functionalities on the unified Cisco DCNM Web Client instead of another LAN thick client. DCNM SAN and DCNM DM Clients are an installation option. All Cisco DCNM Web Client and Cisco DCNM for SAN product documentation is now published to the Data Center Network Manager listing page on Cisco.com:
