Hello There!


As per cisco documentation with NX-OS 4.2 it can support four VDC. Will this # increase in the future NX-OS release or its hardware limitation?


http://cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/datacenter/sw/4_2/nx-os/virtual_device_context/configuration/guide/vdc_overview.html


from the above url:


/* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-qformat:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin-top:0in; mso-para-margin-right:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:10.0pt; mso-para-margin-left:0in; line-height:115%; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:11.0pt; font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"; mso-ascii-font-family:Calibri; mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-theme-font:minor-fareast; mso-hansi-font-family:Calibri; mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin;} The NX-OS software supports upto four VDCs and, therefore, 16,384 unique VLANs. A VDCadministrator can configure VLAN IDs independently of the VLAN IDs used inother VDCs on the same physical device.

Hi SA,


Up to four VDCs can exist in the system at one time. Given that there is always a default VDC active (VDC 1), this means up to three additional VDCs can be created from the CLI and for future reference it will increase best to get the answer is cisco only.


check out the below link for your reference
