DCNM SAN 6.2 + Nexus 5500 not using interface mgmt

Answered Question

When trying to discover a newly setup fabric we have set the SVI of one of the Nexus 5500 switches as seed device in DCNM SAN server. Problem do seem to be the same in DCNM 6.2 as in DCNM 5.x, one can not use a SVI.... After adding the seed switch with the IP adress of the SVI it appears in the Admin->Data sources->Fabric with the ip address of the mgmt interface. Thing is that this ip address can not be reached from the DCNM SAN server since we have only used a cross over ethernet cable for peer-keepalive over the mgmt interfaces.


Is there a way in DCNM SAN 6.2 to force SAN management over a SVI instead of the mgmt interface?
