Macvtap over Cisco Nexus ...

Hi everybody!

First all my apologizes for my english language!

I have a standard server running linux (centos 6.5) with kvm to install and configure virtual machines. I tried to use macvtap driver to setup the virutal network interfaces. I not use ucs Cisco servers or Nexus 1000v switches!

The physical ethernet is connected to Cisco Nexus 2000 (with a Cisco Nexus  5548up). To default a standard switch not working with the macvtap configuration because the swith to be support "reflective relay" or "hair pinning" propierties for to this works.

Is possible configure the Cisco Nexus 5548up/2000 to this works? Capabilities how to Adapter-FEX, veheternet, VM-FEX o similars can help me?

Know you some docs over this?


Thank you all.
