So it had to come up for me eventually.
The customer has all his building maps (with APs) in Prime, and has already setup a nice Hierarchy (with Buildings) in DNA-C.
There does not seem to be a nice way of exporting maps from Prime, and importing it to the DNA-C.
If I just select one Building to export (in Prime), then try to Import on DNA-C, it will show an error with : " Map import failed. Archive does not match any of the site hierarchy ". Ok then....
If I then rename the DNA-C building to the same name as on the Prime, it gives a similar error, but this time it tells me that the Building in DNA-C does not have any floors.
Do we REALLY have to delete the entire newly created hierarchy in DNA-C, and then import the one from Prime, and then the buildings / maps ?
Why cant we just tell DNA-C, manually, doing the import of maps from Prime, that this imported map and floors should be used for "this" building in DNA-C - and then the DNA-C would "Just" create the floors and import the maps.
Because right now, **bleep**, it will take a long time to import everything no-matter what it seems.
And a lot of manual work, before or after.
Any suggestions ?
And apparently one of our Danish Cisco reps. covers this as well in : BRKNMS-2573 from Cisco Live. :-)
Must call Søren :-)
As of now the only way is to import the maps from Desgin section using Import option.
Now integration is also possible officially in couple of links, you can now integrate Cisco Prime Infrastructure with Cisco Digital Network Architecture Center (DNA Center) and utilize the intent-based networking solution for managing application user experience in the enterprise.
DNA Center supports the expression of intent for multiple use cases, including base automation capabilities, fabric provisioning, and policy-based segmentation in the enterprise network.
You can migrate devices, location groups, associated site maps and cmx data from Prime Infrastructure to DNA Center and manage your enterprise network over a centralized dashboard.
Steps are as listed below:-
You can access the Prime Infrastructure to DNA Center migration by logging in to Prime Infrastructure, selecting Administration > Settings > System Settings > General > DNA Center coexistence, and then click Launch DNA Center coexistence to open Prime Infrastructure - DNA Center Coexistence page.
Click Add DNA Center Server.
Enter the following DNA Center server details:
Click Save, to check server reachability.
Click Next to go to Sync Settings.
In the Sync Settings window:
Click Next to go to Select Groups page.
In the Select Groups window:
In the CMX Credentials window:
In the Summary window:
Click Submit, to migrate all the Location Groups, Devices, Maps and CMX from Prime Infrastructure to DNA Center.
Click Force Sync to push data to DNA Center server after the first migration.
