I'm having trouble integrating this - I have followed the available documentation but to be honest it is extremly vague (or maybe I'm being unfair!).
I have 3 subnets, all located on the same switch, each with an SVI:
Routeable Net 1: 10.1.1.0/25 - 10.1.1.1 - VLAN 1233
Routeable Net 2: 10.1.1.128/25 - 10.1.1.129 - VLAN 1234
non-Routeable Net 3: 172.16.220.0/24 - 172.16.220.1 - VLAN 2234
My VSM IP is configured in Net 2 with my ESXi VEM modules in Net 1, so that's the L3 side of things sorted out in terms of VSM > VEM communication, I have a VSG which is also working fine and I have Cisco Prime running too so I know the platform itself is fine.

As you can see, all up and running.
I have installed the Netscaler using the OVA, in more than one way and using different interface configurations, but for the benefit of accuracy, following the document requires 2 interfaces configured as part of the VEM network, which I did, but the NetScaler doesn't work in L2 Adjacency mode as suggested in the manual - therefore I moved it to Net2.
vservice node NS1 type adc
ip address 10.1.1.143
And on the NetScaler
> show vpathparam
Source IP: 10.1.1.143
Global EncapMode: L3
I have this configured back in the VSM on the port-profile as suggested:
port-profile type vethernet public-1234
switchport mode access
switchport access vlan 1234
system vlan 1234
However if I issue the 'show vservice brief' command I see the following:
ID Name Type IP-Address Mode State Module
2 NS1 adc 10.1.1.143 l3 Unreach 3,4,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,15,16,17,
So - vPath definitely not working, I can't even add a DNS server to the NetScaler as I can't get any packets too or from it - I can manage it from it's correct NSIP which is 10.1.1.150
NOTE: All IPs and VLANs have been updated but they relflect the idea.
Has anyone got a working config, example or have any experience integrating the NetScaler (I know this is a longshot since it was only released a week or so back, but I really need to see it working for a POC we're doing).
Please don't hesitate to ask for more info if you can help.
