Introduction

The Cisco Nexus 1000V VSM and VEM can run on the same host. In this case, the VSM communicates with the co-located VEM and other VEMs in the network using its own switch.

Design

The following example shows the port profile and domain configuration for a VSM and VEM on the same host.

In this example the following VLANs are used:

  • Service Console: VLAN 100
  • Control traffic: VLAN 101
  • Management traffic: VLAN 102
  • Packet traffic: VLAN 103

In this example, the ServiceConsole is not configured for VLAN tagging. The vethernet port profile could easily be changed to trunking if required (vlan 1,100,101,102,103).
