So you have the DNA Center racked and stacked in your data centre, and you are thinking what next?

 

To get instant value from your DNA Center, you should next discover and add your network devices to it. In this video, we will take you through the discovery process and also show you how to add devices in the appropriate sites within your network. Note that although the video showcases the discovery of  a WLC, the process is same for other device type as well.

 

Also, it’s always a good idea to visit the DNA Center compatibility matrix page, to see what results you can expect once the devices are added to the DNA Center. The feature and capability that you will achieve once the devices are added, will depend on hardware and software combination you might have.

At this point if you are wondering what happened behind the scenes and what configuration if at all was added to the devices. Below we provide a sample configuration for different types of devices in the network, which is pushed onto them once they are added to DNA Center.

 

Wireless:

Note: This example is from a Cisco Catalyst 9800-CL Cloud Wireless Controller,  X.X.X.X is the Virtual IP (VIP) of DNAC's enterprise interface and Y.Y.Y.Y is the management IP address of WLC.
