Overview of CiscoView Wireless Installation

For the CD One software to work correctly on Solaris 2.6 or 2.7, Solaris patches are required. Make sure that you have a browser, so that you can download the Solaris patches from .

The CD One software includes the device packages needed to manage the wireless aspects for the Cisco uBR7200 series and Cisco 26xx and 36xx series routers.

Note   If you install the CD One software, you do not need to install the device packages separately.

If you need to reinstall the device packages for the Cisco uBR 7200 series and the Cisco 26xx and 36xx series routers, see the "Installing the Device Packages Independently" section .

You can use the Device Support Utility (DSU) to:

Installing the Device Packages Independently

Note   Some device packages may have additional dependent packages. You must install these dependent packages before installing the device package. The DSU will report errors if the dependent packages are not already installed and are not selected.

Tip To run the command-line version of the device package, go to

During the installation, you can choose a third-party network management system (NMS) for integration. For further information on integrating the device package with a third-party NMS platform, refer to "Integrating with Third Party Vendors" at

About Redundancy Support

With CiscoView Wireless, you can have a standby system that can take over in case the functional system fails in a wireless deployment.

Redundancy is defined as the ability to switch service from a Worker to a Protector with minimal disruption of service to customers.

With CiscoView Wireless, you can:

Retrieving a Worker-Protector Pair

To retrieve a Worker-Protector, from the chassis right-click menu, select Worker-Protector Pair>View Worker-Protector Pair.

Creating a Worker-Protector Pair

To create a new Worker-Protector pair, from the chassis right-click menu, choose Worker-Protector Pair>Add a new W-P pair.

Selecting the Redundancy View

The Redundancy view provides a logical representation of the configured Worker-Protector pairs and shows an array of GIFs, which represent a Worker-Protector pair and the status of various components.

Components represented for each Worker and Protector are:
