Cons

Cisco Data Center Network Manager

  • In rare cases you still need to use the command line interface to perform certain operations.
  • Had some conflicts while deploying DCNM which tried to use TCP ports which were in use by an other application.

PATCH MANAGER

  • The actual patching process.
  • The GUI can be a little clunky.
  • When selecting a server or cluster you select the patches you want to install. After highlighting you have to left click the server or cluster in question to make sure there is a transparent yellow dotted line surrounding it (which can be difficult to see).
