The metal atom in the title compound, [Cd(C15H13N2O4)2]·2C2H6OS, is twice O,N,O′-chelated by two symmetry-related Schiff base ligands to define a trans-N2O4 octa­hedral geometry. Each anion occupies meridional sites of the octa­hedron; the metal atom lies on a special position of site symmetry 2. The dimethyl sulfoxide mol­ecule is a hydrogen-bond acceptor to the –NH– unit, and O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds link mol­ecules into a supra­molecular chain.
