I have been using the Nexus 1000v for a few months now, and up till now, have only been managing a cluster of 3 hosts.
I have just added the DVS to another cluster of 2 hosts (in the same datacenter) and created a new uplink port-profile for the new cluster (less VLAN's are allowed on the new profile). This is all working fine, and that hosts/vm's can access everything they need to.
This new cluster also has an iSCSI network attached. This network is physically seperate, and I would like to use the Nexus to control the networking for it all.
I created another Uplink port-profile and as this is a physically seperate network, I just made it an access port. I also created a vethernet port-profile to use for the VMKernel interface.
I added the physical ports that connect to the iSCSI network to the new port-profile, and then setup the vmkernel port. This however does not seem to work.
It appears that the vethernet port-profile used for iSCSI does not know to use the uplink port-profile that is attached to the iSCSI network.
So my questions is 2 fold, is is possible to use 2 or more uplink (ethernet) port-profiles on a single host, and if so, how do you specify which uplink port-profile a vethernet port-profile should use.
Any help on this would be much appreciated.
