Assigning Static-Access Ports to a VLAN

Adding VLANs to Cisco Nexus 1000v

This is the simple process to follow when adding a VLAN and subsequent VMware VM access port group and to a Cisco Nexus 1000v switch.

The annoyance is that you can monitor the configuration of your Nexus 1000v through VMware Virtual Center; however you can't configure it.  All Nexus 1000v configuration must be done at the command line.

In this post I present to you the configuration commands I use when adding an additional VLAN to a Nexus 1000v switch.

VLAN Configuration on Virtual Switch, Physical Switch, and Virtual Machines



This article describes the various VLAN tagging methods used with ESX/ESXi.
Virtual LAN (VLAN) implementation is recommended in ESX/ESXi networking environments because:
  • It integrates ESX/ESXi into a pre-existing network
  • It secures network traffic

VMware ESX, NIC Teaming, and VLAN Trunking with HP ProCurve

In an earlier article about VMware ESX, NIC teaming, and VLAN trunking, I described what the configuration should look like if one were using these features with Cisco switch hardware. It’s been a quite popular post, one I will probably need to update soon.
