DNA Center Newbie Questions


As someone with zero experience with DNA Center, I have just a few quick questions.

Is this like ISE where if it goes down, the network goes down with it? (I don’t have experience with that either - just heard it from our enterprise security team)

I saw a demo at Cisco Live about troubleshooting by user if it’s connected to ISE. I assume it has to be connected to ISE to use LDAP? Does it still offer the same troubleshooting capabilities without being connected to ISE (at least to search by IP).

Sorry for the rookie questions. But thanks for the help.

Contact your Cisco AM/SE and ask them about DNAC.  
They will be very happy come over and show you some slides about what the product can do.

  - As far as this question is concerned , no the network will not go down, it manages 'fabrics' and these are stepped on the devices when DNAC does it's thing (only)

Madam, it all depends , in Riemann geometries the earth can be perfectly flat! The nun thanked him , he tripped and fell forward : the poor animal had forgotten that he might be living in a Riemann geometry too!
