Nexus 7K license Requirements

Hi,

I will be installing a new 7009+Sup2e that apparently brings "N7K-LAN1K9" Lan Enterprise license and for the implementation I will be needing 2 VDC's because I will have F2 and M1 cards on the same chassis,

with this combination how many VDC's will I have ?

From the link

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/datacenter/sw/nx-os/licensing/guide/b_Cisco_NX-OS_Licensing_Guide_chapter_01.html

gattered from another discussion I come to the conclusion that I need "N7K-VDC1K9" to add more VDC's correct ?

Best Regards,

Bruno Fernandes

Re: Nexus 7K license Requirements

You would be having 8 VDC (Including default vdc).

More info:

VDC:

With having VDC license you tend to move from 4 to 8 VDC's.

Re: Nexus 7K license Requirements

Hi Inayath,

Sorry but I'm confused the link's are not 100% clear to me, so simplifying with LAN Enterpreise license I will have only one VDC available correct ? Or 4 VDC's ?

I have only "LAN Enterprise license" for this chassis/sup2e

Best Regards,

Nexus 7K license Requirements

Hi,

If you are using sup 2e, you can have a total of 8 VDCs, one is for admin use and the other 7 can be used for anything else including storage VDC.  If you are connecting storage to your 7k, it will need to connect to F2 module, as the M series modules do not support storage.

Nexus 7K license Requirements

Please find details below:-

1- Supervisor 2 supports 4 VDCs while Supervisor 2E supports 8

2- SUP2 will support 4+1 VDC at FCS (NX-OS 6.1.1) and SUP2E will support upto 8+1 VDC. The VDC upgrade is for SUP2E not SUP2.

Please check out the release note for more detail:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/datacenter/sw/6_x/nx-os/release/notes/61_nx-os_release_note.html

3- Sup2 has 12 Gb of DRAM while Sup2E has 32 Gb of DRAM.

4- In regards to vDC, both Sup2 and Sup2E.  They both support 6 vDC and 1 admin vDC.  In the future, this number will grow to 8 vDC plus 1 Admin vDC (aka "stretched").

N7K-VDC1K9—Enables support for eight VDCs on the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Supervisor 2E module. This is a new license. One license is needed per chassis. A separate license is not required for each supervisor module.
