Need some help configuring the Nexus 1000v on vsphere
I am trying to create a virtual lab for dot1x and hence need to configure the N1k on the vsphere. I ve hit the following roadblocks and would be great if someone could help out.
Ive installed Nexus 5.2(1)SV3(3.15) on an ESXi 5.5(the only ISO i could get my hands on...6.5 complained about image profiles when installing the VIB)
1. Are VIBs common for all Nexus devices or are they tied to the Nexus? For example I have a VSM on another ESXi and i downloaded the VIBs from there and installed it on the current host and created a new VSM is this fine or should it be the same VSM. Since they are VIBs i would assume they are common for all.
2. I run
~ # vem status
VEM modules are loaded
Switch NameNum Ports Used PortsConfigured PortsMTU Uplinks
vSwitch0 15368 128 1500vmnic0
DVS Name Num Ports Used PortsConfigured PortsMTU Uplinks
VEM Agent (vemdpa) is running
and I can see my VEM is installed
I allocated a Distributed Port group for this with the following port profiles
port-profile type ethernet uplink
switchport mode trunk
port-profile type vethernet DOT1X_MAB
switchport mode access
switchport access vlan 100
But on the VC i see the ports as admin blocked.
Since i have specified the VLAN and trunk on the port-profile i dont think there could be a Native vlan problem but on the Vsphere client i see VLAN access:1 which is wierd.
I do show interface virtual and i see nothing on the Nexus
The uplinks on the Nexus VDS are up though
~ # vemcmd show port
