Can a Nexus 1000v be configured to NOT do local switching in an ESX host?
Before the big YES, use an external Nexus switch and use VN-Tag. The question is when there is a 3120 in a blade chassis that connects to the ESX hosts that have a 1000v installed on the ESX host. So, first hop outside the ESX host is not a Nexus box.
Looking for if this is possible, if so how, and if not, where that might be documented. I have a client who's security policy prohibits switching (yes, even on the same VLAN) within a host (in this case blade server). Oh and there is an insistance to use 3120s inside the blade chassis.
Has to be the strangest request I have had in a while.
Re: Can a Nexus 1000v be configured to NOT do local switching in
Let me make the question simpler. Customer wants to use Nexus 1000V in the ESX host instead of native VM vSwitch. Is that possible to disable local switching (traffic among VMs in the same ESX host in the same VLAN) in this scenario without turning on VNTag? Thanks.
