    Are you using NCM Connector for Cisco Smart Advisor???

    rhrohde

      I am upgrading all my Orion modules and saw this in with the NCM 7.5.1 download.

       

      Do you use it?

      Is it worth it?

      Does it work well?

      Does it report stuff back to Cisco that you may not want Cisco to know?

       

      Please LMK your feedback on this.

       

      Thanks,
      Rick

          We intend to use it but I've not had much luck with getting it to connect to Cisco's backend database just yet.  In all fairness, I've not had a ton of time to spend working on it.

           

          There is similar functionality (from a reporting standpoint) available via the Cisco SmartNet Total Care portal which is bundled with SmartNet contracts now (you must be running a collector within your network) but it would be nice to have everything wrapped up (and actionable from a configuration change/upgrade standpoint) within the Orion ecosystem.

           

          I'm pretty bad at keeping track of the forums but if you ping me in a month or so I'll likely have more to report on the Smart Connector front.

            I have tried but could not get it to work properly, i even had it run for a couple of days once but it never finished.
