I am confused about how works the integration between N1K and UCS Manager:
If two VMs on different ESXi and different VEM but in the same VLAN,would like to talk each other, the data flow between them is managed from the upstream switch( in this case UCS Fabric Inteconnect), isn'it?
I created a Ethernet uplink port-profile on N1K in switch port mode access(100), I created a vEthernet port-profile for the VM in switchport mode access(100) as well. In the Fabric Interconnect I created a vNIC profile for the physical NICs of ESXi(where there are the VMs). Also I created the vlan 100(the same in N1K)
Second question: With the configuration above, if I include in the vNIC profile the vlan 100 (not as native vlan) only, the two VMs can not ping each other. Instead if I include in the vNIC profile only the defaul vlan(I think it is the vlan 1) as native vlan evereything works fine. WHY????
Third question: How it works the tagging vlan on Fabric interconnectr and also in N1K.
I tried to read differnt documents, but I did not understand.
Since you have defined switchport mode access vlan 100 on uplink port-profile of Nexus 1000v, it sends all ethernet frames untagged(without 802.1q tag).
When you include in the vNIC profile the vlan 100 (not as native vlan) ONLY like below screenshot, untagged frames are dropped because UCS expects all frames received on this port as tagged frames.
When you change vNIC template to include default vlan as native vlan ONLY like below screen shot, you basically bridge two vlans (vlan 100 and vlan 1) because UCS FI now puts all untagged frames in vlan 1. and sends untagged frames to other ESXi host and ESXi host again bridge vlan 1 to vlan 100 with switchport mode access vlan 100 on uplink port profile.

常见的数据中心之间通信均会采用运营商MSTP/OTN专线进行互联实现通信，由于长途线路价格昂贵通常我们需要最大化使用线路带宽，传统的网络传输中通常是尽力而为传输一旦突发流量较大就会发生线路拥塞的情况，从而影响业务正常通信传输。这时候我们可以采用Qos技术来实现数据中心思科设备之间关键网络流量保障，从而实现链路最大化利用。拓扑图场景如下：如上图，SW01是位于数据中心A的广域网接入Cisco Nexus 3048交换机，SW02是位于数据中心B的广域网接...
