Nexus 1010 and Management

it is the first time that i install and configure a Nexus 1010.

After unpackaging, i have upgrade the BIOS, CMC and Firmware of the nexus 1010 (like a classical C-serie server)

The CIMC 's @IP is ; I have connected the 10/100 Ethernet CIMC management port to my OOB  network where we have all OOB interfaces from Nx7k and Nx5k.

Now i would want configure the Nx1010 in the topology "uplink type 3".

port 1 and 2 : mangement Vlan

port 3 to 6 : Control/packt Vlan and Data Vlan.

In the setup wizard, we have to configure the int Mgmt0 of Nx 1010.

In which network must be the Mgmt0 ; i am confused and mix up :

- CIMC mgmt from the C-series server

- mgmt0 int from nexus 1010 : by which physical interface goes throught this traffic : via "10/100 Ethernet CIMC management port" or via "Management vlan" ???

- Vlan management : this Vlan will allow to manager the VSB VSM-1 et VSM-2....

The Vlan management must not be the OOB network, must it ?

It is not clear for my mind ; i mix up all this mgmt

please help me !!!

many thank in advance.

NB : All the devices in our DC (Nx5k and Nx5K/Nx2K) have two management interface :

1 - OOB management via the pysical OOB port

2 - Inb management via a dedicated Vlan ; each device have 1 @IP in this Vlan (even the L2 Nx7k (without M1 card) via the cli "management")

How could i have the these mgmt for Nexus 1010 / CIMC / VSM ???

Last question : in order to upgrade the nx 1010, then download the nexus-1000v*.iso to bootflash:repository, which network/mgmt i have to used ???
