Experiences with Cisco Nexus 1000V?

Recommended Posts

I doing project studies with cisco nexus 1000v and was wondering if there was someone on these forums with experience on the system.

 

I am having problems getting the VSM and VEM modules to communicate with each other.

Well in case someone might be interested, I got the darn thing working. Had to demolish my whole vCenter, remove the installed VEM module and start from scratch. Then I put the whole thing back together with the exception of not creating a HA group between the esxi hosts. During the whole process I monitored the switches (Cisco 3560) mac address table output to verify the presence of the correct amount of mac clients on both trunk links.

 

When I finally got the VEM installed the VSM instantly noticed the VEM present. So could say that a little bit of voodoo is included in the Nexus 1000v setup. Now the only thing left is to figure something to do with it. :D

Don't know, but tomorrow I'll keep on battling with it hoping to get something intelligent done with it.

For sure. It'll only cost 10x more than generic magic smoke and require 2 hours of IOS commands to implement ;)
