I think Thunder's saying it's not officially supported, and is unlikely to be.

 

But that doesn't mean you can't use Force10 with IMC. Basic monitoring will just work, using SNMP.  You'll need to write your own adapters to support backups, etc., but this is trivial if the CLI is similar to Cisco. Just copy the Cisco adapters, and update the sysOIDs.

No, IMC can't support Force 10.

And I am afraid it won't be supported in the near future.

SNMP monitoring is still going to work, but it looks like you'll have to write your own config adapters to do backups, etc.

 

It should be relatively straightforward to write your own adapters.

Thank for response,

but why it does not support, IMC discover with SNMP who is supported by Force10, and the Force10 commands lines its sames that cisco who is supported in IMC?

 

Thanks a lot for your support
