Does anyone use the SDM in production enviroments? We don't use it hear and I was wondering if anyone else uses it.

    I think it comes down to what you want to do. I've used it for DHCP, basic site-to-site VPNs, etc.

    I've seen it installed on a few of our clients devices, but we don't use it ourselves

    I use it to create zone based firewall templates - after that I tweak via the cli. It's also nice for a quick VPN setup,

    Are there sim based questions using SDM on the exam these days? I have never used SDM myself.

    I have heard that there maybe some on the CCNA:S that is why I was wondering. It is in the blueprint for the CCNA:S so more than likely there will be some on the exam.

    I dont know about the CCNA Security, but the SDM definitely plays a large role in the CCNP ISCW (security) exam. There are lots of questions that pertain to its use, what screens allow you to do what tasks etc. It's a good idea to know the ins and outs of the product for that track. That being said, i've never used it in production and I dont see a time when I would lol.

    I know that SDM is used on the CCNA Security exam, but I haven't really seen it in use in production, (with the exception of by my counterpart at my last company, hence the reason I had to take over the project and get the work done through the CLI). Still, as far as GUI tools for Cisco go, I think CSM looks a lot better to work with. Still, the GUIs are no replacement for the CLI when it comes to professional and enterprise-level work on Cisco devices.
