I am looking at an upgrade from Nexus 7000 Supervisor 1's to Supervisor 2E's.
One of the differences that I am seeing is a lack of the CMP (Connectivity Managment Processor) and the CMP port. Even on the config guide for CMP, here, it says:
Note: The CMP is available only on the Supervisor 1 modules, not on the Supervisor 2 nor Supervisor 2E modules.
Currently we're utilizing those ports for OOB management, but will lose that functionality in the Sup-2E's. It isn't the end of the world, but I will need to document/work-around this in the implementation plan.
I'm assuming this was an intentional choice on Cisco's part, so does any one know why, or have any documentation with the reasoning behind this choice?
