I am trying to figure out how to do vmotion on the Cisco Nexus. At the moment i have both cold/hot migrations taking place but i am not sure if its best practise the way i have configured it.
Basically i created a port profile, which is below,
switchport mode access
switchport access vlan 963
system vlan 963
If i change the my system-uplink port profile to allow the extra system vlan, it works perfectly. So i have created the VMKernal interfaces and everything work great.
I want to be able to use VMotion without using a System VLAN and also using a unused VMNIC, so that the Vmotion traffic will be using a complete seperate PNIC, to normal VM data and System traffic.
Question is how do i configure this in the Nexus 1000v and Vcenter?
