Management SVI Nexus 5548

Hello

I want to configure management for some Nexus 5548's and have a couple of questions which I was hoping for some help on.

I wanted to manage the switches via an SVI.  I have read the following document which gives details about the Management SVI but doesn't answer all questions.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/datacenter/nexus5000/sw/layer2/513_n1_1/b_Cisco_n5k_layer2_config_gd_rel_513_N1_1_chapter_0100.html#task_71991D8EFFB54DAB893C5E0855FF7AFD

I am not running any layer 3 functionality on the switch, no layer3 license (which it mentions in the above link) Will I still be able to create a management SVI.  I know I will need to enable the feature 'interface-vlan' to setup a Management SVI, does that require a license?

Thanks

Mark

Re: Management SVI Nexus 5548

You can have single VLAN without the L3 license. Please see below output on my L2 only Nexus 5020 (no L3 capability on this box):

N5K-3# sh ver

... SNIP ...

Software

  BIOS:      version 1.3.0

  loader:    version N/A

  kickstart: version 5.0(3)N2(2)

  system:    version 5.0(3)N2(2)

... SNIP ...

Hardware

  cisco Nexus5020 Chassis ("40x10GE/Supervisor")

... SNIP ...

N5K-3# sh run int vl 1

!Command: show running-config interface Vlan1

!Time: Thu Aug 16 19:54:57 2012

version 5.0(3)N2(2)

interface Vlan1

  no shutdown

  ip address 1.1.1.1/24

I've not tested management SVI in any deployment but feature interface-vlan doesn't require a L3 or special license.

HTH,

Thanks for the reply Jerry, do you know why it says this in the link I posted in my original post? "Install the Layer 3 license"

Thanks

Configuring a VLAN as a Routed SVI

You can configure a VLAN to be a routed switch virtual interface (SVI).

Re: Management SVI Nexus 5548

Thanks a lot for your help Jerry.

I'm assuming it can be any VLAN for the one SVI and not specific to VLAN 1 right? E.g I would want to set it up on VLAN 10.

Thank you

Re: Management SVI Nexus 5548

Yes, this is correct. You can use different VLAN ID. You also have to create a default route also.
