Cisco LAN Management Solution 3.0 (LMS)

CiscoWorks LAN Management Solution (LMS) is an integrated suite of management tools that simplify the configuration, administration, monitoring, and troubleshooting of Cisco® networks. Built upon popular Internet-based standards, CiscoWorks LMS applications help enable network operators to manage the network through a browser-based interface that can be accessed anytime from anywhere within the network. CiscoWorks LMS maintains a centralized list of all Cisco network devices and their credentials that serves as a single repository for all CiscoWorks applications whether they are installed locally or distributed in a multiserver deployment. CiscoWorks LMS Portal enables functional views that can be tailored to meet the needs of an individual or group of network operations staff, simplifying integration and navigation between Cisco and other third-party application functionality.

Using common centralized systems and network-inventory knowledge, CiscoWorks LMS delivers a unique platform of cross-functional management capabilities that reduce network administration overhead and simplify troubleshooting, improving overall network availability.
CiscoWorks LMS applications are delivered on a single DVD, one for the Windows operating system and another for the Solaris operating system, and installation is performed by a single, quick and easy installer. The following applications are included in the CiscoWorks LMS 3.0 package:

  • CiscoWorks Common Services 3.1 (includes CiscoWorks LMS Portal and CiscoWorks Assistant)
