Hi,

Is it possible to use an existing RFS6000 along with a standalone NSIGHT server?

Or is it pointless and should scrap the RFS6000 and switch to NX or VX9000?

Hi Konstantinos,

It depends on your plans:

  • you may use RFS6000 as adopting controller and VX as standalone NSight server 
  • you may use RFS6000 as site controller and adopt with VX while running NSight server
  • you may scrap RFS6000 and use VX as adopting and NSight server

From the management perspective you may prefer having everything managed in layers with VX being NOC, but from design perspective you may prefer having NSight server being independent in case of failure.

Once again I will recommend consulting this with NSight deployment guide, see under this link.
It should help you to compare pros and cons of having Integrated or Standalone structure.

Regards,
Ondrej

Thank you both for your answer.


Could you please confirm that the following, stated in the deployment guide, is valid?


Note: VX9000 acting as a standalone NSight server does not require VX platform license. Only NSight

licenses should be installed.

So only one of the following is adequate?

VX9-NSIGHT-1 VX-9000 NSight Perpetual License for 1 AP
VX9-NSIGHT-16 VX-9000 NSight Perpetual License for 16 APs
VX9-NSIGHT-64 VX-9000 NSight Perpetual License for 64 APs
VX9-NSIGHT-256 VX-9000 NSight Perpetual License for 256 APs
VX9-NSIGHT-1024 VX-9000 NSight Perpetual License for 1024 APs
VX9-NSIGHT-2048 VX-9000 NSight Perpetual License for 2048 Aps

That is a correct statement. A standalone NSight server does not require VX platform license. Only NSight licenses should be installed.

Hi,

taken from the NSight deployment guide shared above

.
Appliance license is actually needed only for AP adoption.
