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.
