Cisco NX-OS 5.2 and higher requires licensed DCNM

Technote (FAQ)


Can I use the free version of the Cisco DCNM SMI-S provider in my TPC environment?


Cisco switches with firmware version 5.2 and higher


Switches running NX-OS 5.2 and higher require the licensed version of the Cisco DCNM SMI-S provider in order to have full TPC support. Advanced functions such as performance monitoring can only be enabled through the full featured version of the SMI-S provider.

One symptom of running with the free version of the Cisco DCNM SMI-S provider will be that after adding the cimom and running CIMOM discovery successfully the TPC 'Show Managed Devices' button will display the a popup with the message:

"No managed devices were found for this CIM Agent. Please verify that CIMOM Discovery has been run on this agent."
