In this case I have some additional question. In case of a VSM in VM and the vCenter in the same switched area it was easy to maintain L2 connection.
In case of Nexus 1010 VSM I might have to deploy it in a different area, so the connection from the vCenter to Nexus 1010 VSM will be a L3 connection.
My point is, do I need to have mandatory L2 communication between VSM and vCenter or L3 will be also OK as long I have reachability. I read a dozen papers and I got a little bit confused. I remember that L3 would be just fine, but I want to confirm before starting to design.
VSM talks to vCenter through the standard RESTful API (HTTPS). That traffic can be routed. You do not need a L2 connection between VSM and vCenter. IP connectivity is a necessary and sufficient condition.
For VSM to VEM communications, L2 (Control and Packet VLANs) is arguably simpler to deploy than L3. This implies L3 is also possible.
