Dell OpenManage Network Manager delivers you automated, consolidated configuration and
control of Dell PowerConnect switches. Comprehensive network management capabilities include:

• Monitoring and management of PowerConnect switches
• Automation of labor-intensive and common network management operations to lower the
total cost of ownership for PowerConnect switch administrators
• Advanced network element discovery, remote configuration management, and system health monitoring to proactively alert network administrators to potential network problems.
Network Manager is customizable, and it unifies multiple systems while still allowing event and trap forwarding to other enterprise network management systems.

Fixes & Enhancements

IMPORTANT: Network Manager can only be installed as an initial install or upgraded from version 4.3.

This version of Network Manager adds support for several Powerconnect J-Series, B-Series, and W-Series devices. Other features in 4.x are: • A free license is included to manage up to 10 devices. You can continue to manage any number of devices when upgrading from previous versions containing previously discovered devices, but will be required to purchase an additional license to discover additional devices. If after an upgrade you have more devices discovered than you have a license for, you will only be able to remove the devices and not be allowed to add any device until you drop below the license limit (unless you purchase an additional license). Once the number of devices fall below the licensed amount, the license limit goes into effect.
