Nexus 7K out of band Management interface

Dears,

regarding to the out of band Management interface , if I configured an intervace vlan to be as a managment interface for one vdc ( the default vdc )

, when I connected to this vdc via telnet , can I switch to any other vdc ?  ( suppose that I have the Admin role which allows me to enter and config all the vdc's )

If that is possible so that I dont have to make a dedicated managment ip for each VDC

I need to do that only if I want to make vdc admin's account to allow some users to access specific vlans only , is that true ?

Hi,

Yes, it is possible.  When you login as admin and you want to get to another vdc, you just use this command:

switchto vdc

This will take to the that vdc.  If you want to switch back to the admin vdc, you just type "switchback"

Hi All,

 

i tried to access non VDC admin by telnet but i was unable to access VDC admin,

is there a way to access VDC admin when i login another VDC by telnet.

 

Thanks,

 

Can you ping from non Admin VDC to Admin VDC vice versa?

Hi Bilal,

 

when i was on non Admin VDC and i write "switchback" it didn't take effect.

 

Thanks,

 

Did you telnet to non admin VDC first? and then try switchback?

Hi Bilal,

 

yes this is my testing and i didn't work?

 

Thanks

Yes, it will not work, the design is to go via admin VDC to all the other VDC's but none of them are allowed to get in to the admin VDC. This behaviour is by default and I do not think we can change this yet.
