IBM Network Advisor V11.1 provides a non-disruptive path and functional continuity for organizations that are upgrading from IBM Data Center Fabric Manager V10. Customers with valid software maintenance contracts under IBM Data Center Fabric Manager V10 will be automatically renewed on the Software Maintenance under IBM Network Advisor V11. Customers who need to renew their Software Maintenance, starting immediately, should order the IBM Network Advisor V11 Maintenance and Support Program IDs and features.

Upgrading from IBM Data Center Fabric Manager to IBM Network Advisor is done by downloading Network Advisor and installing it over the existing IBM Data Center Fabric Manager installation. The license will be automatically transferred to the IBM Network Advisor installation.
