nexus switches - is the commands different than IOS

Hi Carl,

Most configuration commands in NX-OS are parrallel with IOS.  There was a big push to make the two operating systems feel similar as most people would have a mix of devies.

So in general NX-OS has same config setup...enable, global config, interface config structure.  Most commands are very similar as well.

Here is a great link detailing a comparison of the two.

Hope this helps.

Many commands are very similar to IOS, but a lot of them doesn't have equivalents in nx-os.

But you also need to take into consideration that many commands which have heir equivalents might have different behavior since iOS and nx-os have completely different architecture, and nexus and routers are also technically different.
