How does the Y2K Compliance Assessment Tool work?
The Y2K Compliance Assessment Tool allows you to automate both the task of collecting detailed inventory information from devices in your network and the process of reconciling that information with the Cisco online year 2000-compliance database. The Y2K Compliance Assessment Tool uses an SNMP-based discovery engine to locate the Cisco devices in your network. It then determines the Cisco IOS, Catalyst, and WAN switching software running in each device. This information is automatically compared to the Cisco online compliance database on Cisco Connection Online (CCO). This requires a Web connection to CCO. You will have an up-to-date snapshot of your Cisco device year 2000 compliance status. Based on this reconciliation, the tool provides an easy-to-read report and provides upgrade recommendations.
