Guidelines and Limitations

Follow these guidelines and limitations when configuring virtual service blades:

The Cisco Nexus 1010 and its hosted Cisco Nexus 1000V VSMs must share the same management VLAN.

Unlike the control and packet VLANs which are set when a virtual service blade is created, a virtual service blade inherits its management VLAN from the Cisco Nexus 1010.


Caution Do not change the management VLAN on a virtual service blade. Since the management VLAN is inherited from the Cisco Nexus 1010, if you change it, then the change is applied to both the Cisco Nexus 1010 and all of its hosted Cisco Nexus 1000V VSMs.

Creating a Virtual Service Blade

Use this procedure to create a virtual service blade (VSB), such as a VSM, by installing and configuring the Cisco Nexus 1000V software.


Note For information about upgrading Cisco Nexus 1000V software on an existing VSB, see the Cisco Nexus 1000V Software Upgrade Guide, Release 4.0(4)SV1(3).


BEFORE YOU BEGIN

Before beginning this procedure, you must know or do the following:

You are logged in to the CLI in EXEC mode.

You know the name of the virtual service blade that you want to create.

You know whether you are using a new ISO file from the bootflash repository folder or from an existing virtual service blade.

If you are using a new ISO file in the bootflash repository, you know the filename.

Cisco Nexus 1000V: nexus-1000v.4.0.4.SV1.3.iso

Cisco NAM: nam-4-2-1.iso

If you are using an ISO file from an existing virtual service blade, you must know the name of the virtual service blade type. This procedure includes information about identifying this name.

You know the following properties for the virtual service blade:

Domain ID

Management IP address

Management subnet mask length

Default gateway IPV4 address

Switchname

Administrator password

Control and packet VLAN IDs

This procedure shows you how to identify and assign control and packet VLANs for the virtual service blade. Do not assign a management VLAN because the management VLAN is inherited from the Cisco Nexus 1010.

SUMMARY STEPS

1. config t

2. virtual-service-blade name

3. show virtual-service-blade summary

4. virtual-service-blade-type [ name | new iso_file_name ]

Step 2 

virtual-service-blade name


Example:

switch(config)# virtual-service-blade vsm-1

switch(config-vsb-config)#

Creates the named virtual service blade and places you into configuration mode for that service.

name: an alphanumeric string of up to 80 characters

Step 3 

show virtual-service-blade summary


Displays a summary of all virtual service blade configurations by type name, such as VSM or NAM. You use this type name in the next step.

Step 4 

virtual-service-blade-type [name | new iso file name]


Example:

switch(config-vsb-config)# virtual-service-blade-type new nexus-1000v.4.0.4.SV1.3.iso

switch(config-vsb-config)#


Example:

switch(config-vsb-config)# virtual-service-blade-type vsm-2

switch(config-vsb-config)#


Specifies the type and name of the software image file to add to this virtual service blade.

name: the name of the existing virtual service blade type. Enter the name of an existing type found in the Step 3 command output.

new: the name of the new ISO software image file in bootflash repository folder.

Step 5 

description description


Example:

switch(config-vsb-config)# description vsm_hamilton_storage

switch(config-vsb-config)#

(Optional) Adds a description to the virtual service blade.

description: an alphanumeric string of up to 80 characters without spaces

Step 6 

show virtual-service-blade name name


Example:

switch(config-vsb-config)# show virtual-service-blade name vsm-2

virtual-service-blade vsm-2

Description:

Slot id: 2

Host Name:

Management IP:

VSB Type Name : VSM-1.0

Interface:   control    vlan: 0

switch(config-vsb-config)# interface control vlan 1044

switch(config-vsb-config)#


Example:

switch(config-vsb-config)# interface packet vlan 1045

switch(config-vsb-config)#


Applies the interface and VLAN ID to this virtual service blade. Use the interface names from Step 6 command output.

Note If you attempt to apply an interface that is not present, the following error is displayed:
ERROR: Interface name not found in the associated virtual-service-blade type


Caution Do not assign a management VLAN. Unlike control and packet VLANs, the management VLAN is inherited from the Cisco Nexus 1010.

Caution To prevent loss of connectivity, you must configure the same control and packet VLANs on the hosted VSMs.

Step 8 

Repeat Step 7 to apply additional interfaces.

Step 9 

enable [primary | secondary]

Example:

switch(config-vsb-config)# enable

Enter domain id[1-4095]: 1054

Enter Switchname: VSM-1

Enter the password for 'admin': Sfish123

switch(config-vsb-config)#

Initiates the configuration of the virtual service blade and then enables it.

If you are enabling a non-redundant virtual service blade, you can specify its HA role as follows:

primary: designates the virtual service blade in a primary role.

secondary: designates the virtual service blade in a secondary role.

The Cisco Nexus 1010 prompts you for the following:

Domain ID
This must be a different domain ID than the one you used for the Cisco Nexus 1010.

Management IP address

Management subnet mask length

Default gateway IPV4 address

While the switch is configuring the virtual service blade, the switch output for this command progresses from in progress to powered on.

Step 11 

copy running-config startup-config


Example:

switch(config-vsb-config)# copy running-config startup-config

Saves the running configuration persistently through reboots and restarts by copying it to the startup configuration.

Deleting a Virtual Service Blade

Use this procedure to delete a virtual service blade, such as a VSM or NAM.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN

Before beginning this procedure, you must know or do the following:

You are logged in to the CLI in EXEC mode.

You know the name of the virtual service blade you are deleting.

You must shut down the virtual service blade before it can be deleted. This procedure includes instructions for shutting down the virtual service blade.

A virtual service blade can be removed completely from both redundant Cisco Nexus 1010s, or from only one. If one of a redundant pair of virtual service blade blades becomes unusable, it can be removed from only the Cisco Nexus 1010 where it resides. This mitigates the recovery by preserving the remaining virtual service blade in the pair. This may become necessary if a new instance of the service must be provisioned.

Modifying a Virtual Service Blade

Use this section to modify the control VLAN, packet VLAN, or the RAM size of a virtual service blade and then make the corresponding changes to the VSM.

This section includes the following topics:

Modifying a Virtual Service Blade on the Cisco Nexus 1010

Modifying a VSM on the Cisco Nexus 1000V

Modifying a Virtual Service Blade on the Cisco Nexus 1010

Use this procedure to modify the control VLAN, packet VLAN, or the RAM size of a virtual service blade.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN

Before beginning this procedure, you must know or do the following:

You are logged in to the CLI in EXEC mode.

You know the name of the virtual service blade you are modifying.

You must shut down the virtual service blade before modifying the RAM size. This procedure includes instructions for shutting down the virtual service blade.

You must shut down the virtual service blade before modifying the control VLAN. This procedure includes instructions for shutting down the virtual service blade.


Caution The VSM must be in the shut state before modifying the control VLAN to preserve high availability when the service comes back. The control VLAN passes control messages to the standby VSM.

You change the configuration first in the virtual service blade configuration and, then, in the Cisco Nexus 1000V VSM configuration. This procedure changes the virtual service blade configuration. To change the Cisco Nexus 1000V configuration, see the "Modifying a VSM on the Cisco Nexus 1000V" procedure.


Caution Do not modify the management VLAN. If you change the management VLAN, the change is applied to both the Cisco Nexus 1010 and all of the Cisco Nexus 1000V VSMs. The Cisco Nexus 1010 and its hosted Cisco Nexus 1000V VSMs share the same management VLAN. Unlike the control and packet VLANs which are set when a virtual service blade is created, the management VLAN is inherited.
