we have 4 different san fabrics with mds switches. In every fabric, we have installed a additional nexus 5596 with a san dcnm license. The mds switches has not a fabric manager license. We installed the dcnm for the san administration and we can add the nexus switches but not the existing mds switches to the dcnm. Is it possible we can start the grace period for the fabric manager? How can administrate the complete fabrics with the dcnm?
Please visit our demo/eval site at Cisco.com/go/license and select dcnm. You will be able to select mds and nexus evals for 20 switches and 60 days. The license can be issued twice for the same host id/MAC.
