Sdm

Is it possible to use SDM on Cisco Packet tracer or one of the others. I want to play around with SDM but I don't have a router yet.

Thanks

    Nope, it's not supported. You'll have to use GNS/Dynamips/Dynagen or a real router if you want to use it.

    Why don't you use CCP?
    Cisco replaced SDM some time ago, and the new exams cover only CCP instead of SDM.

    I am doing the CCNA pre the new one that is coming out in September, do they not use SDM on that exam?

    Is CCP similar enough that if you lab using it instead of SDM you won't have a problem on the ICND series of exams?

    Consult the blueprint to be sure. CCNA Security replaced SDM with CCP in the recent changes.

    The Old ICND1 (640-822) still lists SDM (DHCP and NAT using SDM) as a covered topic. The new ICND1 (100-101) doesn't seem to include any GUI (SDM or CCP) components. I played around with it a little using GNS3. The biggest issue is that with a current version of Java the exact functionality (DHCP and NAT) that is listed for the old ICND1 does not function correctly. You will need to install the specific version of Java that it says is compatible, which is a PITA since Oracle will not allow it to be downloaded [from them] anymore (or at least would not let me), because they claim it contains serious security vulnerabilities and should never be used.

    I have not seen any SDM questions on the exam for about 2.5 years now. As mentioned above, SDM was sunset about 2.5 years ago and CCP has replaced it. But it is only on the CCNA Security exam for now.
