Cisco Nexus dashboard for NX-OS

Would you recommend or is it even possible to use and leverage the functions of Cisco dashboard controller, if you are using Cisco Nexus platform as traditional NX-OS DataCenter switch without ACI or without (manual) VXLAN. In our case we do a „traditional“ datacenter collapsed core with multiple VPC pairs. And now I’m wondering, if Nexus dashboard also is usefully here?

Hello @jazmin8,

Using Cisco Dashboard Controller in a traditional data center environment with Nexus switches running NX-OS without ACI  can still be valuable, but its utility may be somewhat limited compared to when it is used in conjunction with ACI or VXLAN-based fabrics. You can still use the Cisco Dashboard Controller to manage the configuration of your Nexus switches. This includes tasks such as creating VLANs, configuring port channels (vPC), and setting up routing protocols. But you may not be able to leverage all the features of Cisco Dashboard Controller to their full potential in a non-ACI, non-VXLAN environment. Some features may be more tailored to ACI or VXLAN-based fabrics, and you might find that certain capabilities are not relevant to your specific network architecture.
