Currently we have CiscoWorks LMS 2.6 and looking to buy or if possible upgrade to latest version of CiscoWorks LMS 4.1 I need confirmation is this LMS 4.1 is a bundle? Like including RME, Common Services, CiscoView, Device fault Manager, Campus Manager and etc.,?
An upgrade from LMS 2.x to LMS 4.1 is possible. With LMS 2.6 there was no device count restriction but the next major release (LMS 3.0) introduced licensing based on device count. So you have to determine which device count you need. Available licenses are for example:
LMS41-300-UP-K9 Upgrade LMS 2.x 3.x to 4.1 Base DVD for 300 devices
LMS41-1.5K-UP-K9 Upgrade LMS 2.x 3.x to 4.1 Base DVD for 1500 devices
LMS 4.1 is a bundle and - under the cover - still contains CS, CiscoView, RME, CM, DFM and meanwhile also IPM (Internetwok Performance Monitor) and HUM (Health and Utilization Monitor); With LMS 4.x they cannot be installed as standalone applications as it was with LMS 2.x/ 3.x; Also the GUI has undergone a complete re-write (and thus re-organization) - see the link to the data sheets below.
There will be some changes with LMS because it will be merged together with "Cisco Prime Network Control System" into "Cisco Prime Infrastructure".
Thus the latest release of LMS (LMS 4.2) is available in the "Cisco Prime Infrasturcture" Bundle which contains both these products:
Cisco Prime Network Control System 1.1 (Mgmt for Wireless Products)
Cisco Prime LAN Management Solution 4.2 (Mgmt for Network devices)
Data sheets for LMS 4.2 and LMS 4.1 are available here:
