Need some insight on UCS and Nexus 1000v Infra setup with VMWare
here is where we stand
We have decided to create Service Profiles which will have
6 vNICs and 2 vHBAs
vNIC1-Mgmt FI-A- VLAN 100
vNIC2-Mgmt FI-B- VLAN 100
The above service profile is applied on B200M3 and ESXi running on it
Similarly we have 4 blades
And we are able to get the Management IPs of ESXis outside FI through VLAN100 via Nexus 5K,the native vlan on Nexus 5K and FI is given as 999
Now we need to bring the Nexus 1000v into picture
From here on we are a bit confused on how to start
1)After installing ESXi,what is to be done on VMs network part?
2)How do we use/arrange the above VNICs in ESXi
undrerstand that Nexus1000v is a VM residing on an ESXi having 6 vNICs
(traffic flow->)so what ever communication it has to do its via these vNICs,hope am correct?
so traffic flow is from Nexus1000v via 6 vNIcs to the uplink that we have made in FI to the outside network?( if the traffic has to go out)
3)After installing Nexus 1000v as a VM (or any other way to proceed?) on an ESXi how to proceed further-how do we get the above mentioned VNICs which are now vmnics ,as part of Nexus 1000v,and any vlans to be created?
4)Have heard of creating port profile in 1000v, how does this work?what is it for? where does it fit in the above scenario( traffic flow->)
Please guide as we are new to this..
Thanks and Regards
