Some network admins see the light

Permalink 12:02:00 by Joe, Categories: Resnet

It seems the disappointment over CCA is growing in the community of university network administrators.
From a post to a mailing list that discusses CCA administration (the official name of CCA is Cisco NAC):

The history of issues on this list has convinced us of the wisdom of our laziness, to wit:

1) We're still running 3.5.11
2) We never required use of the agent

And I'm actively researching alternatives to Cisco NAC, based on the Mac agent issues, and all the general sluggishness of response shown by Cisco to issues mentioned on this list.

We're pretty early adopters of many things, but recent history of this product hasn't been very inspirational.

I think this speaks for itself. In particularly #2, which we had always asked Resnet to do.
If only UCI Resnet personnel was as clueful as this network admin. But Resnet got suckered into CCA, hook, line and sinker. And they don't want to admit that they made a mistake (or maybe they just don't want me to be able to say "I told you so"...)
