Cisco ACI – Creating an ANP with the Basic GUI

Much like Cisco UCS, there was a bit of a learning curve to the GUI. However, once you became more familiar with the GUI it did become pretty intuitive and gave you every single command you needed without having to go to the command line. People expect more out of GUIs as of late, though. More and more emphasis is put on UX design. A few months ago, Cisco came up with the Basic GUI. So now there are two modes, the Basic GUI and the Advanced GUI and there are two ways to get to them:

  1. You can change modes at the initial login.
  2. You can toggle modes by going to the Admin pull-down menu in the upper right corner of the APIC GUI once you’ve already logged in.
