I have 2 Large VMs and 4 Medium VMs on which I got a couple of concerns:
1) can I use the 2 Large VMs with 256GB memory as PAN + MnT with PxGrid?
I see the 256GB VM can be used for MnT only but can I use it in Hybrid Mode? https://community.cisco.com/t5/policy-and-access/differences-for-the-different-ise-vm-license-bundles/td-p/3377503
2) If 1 is possible, How many active endpoints can I have? I see 1,500,000 as per the sheet below
Solved! Go to Solution.
1. Yes, you can use Large VM as PAN + MNT+ pxGrid.256GB ram configuration is similar to SNS 3695
2. Even though, Large VMs used as PAN & MNT personas is enabled on a single node it is considered as a medium deployment. As per the scaling guide, you can go up to 5 PSNs max with 50k max concurrent session.
As an alternative option, you can get the same 50k concurrent session with 2 Large standalone ISE(v2.6) VMs.
Large VMs which I have mentioned is applicable in the case of ISE 2.6 & not with 2.4. The statement holds true for ISE v2.4 the Large VM is intended to use as a Super MnT node & not for meant for other personas.
