Nexus 7000 - Management best practice in multi-VDC environment

Hello all, my topology includes an Admin VDC, a Core\Agg VDC and a Storage VDC for FCoE traffic. In the absence of a dedicated OOB Management switch, could I patch from an interface in the Core\Agg VDC to the Mgmt0 interface of the SUP2 and get access to mgmt0 IP of all VDCs? Or is an OOB management switch a necessity to manage this topology?  

Any information would be appreciated.

Kind regards

Rays

Hi Rays,

Yes, you can do that. Having a dedicated management n/w switch is the best recommendation but you can always have the OOB management network port added to the switchport in a dedicated Vlan which is routed over the network for a remote access. The only thing you need to make sure that you restrict access to OOB management IP by using some ACL's just to allowed admin users to get access to it.

Hope this helps.
