Introduction to Cisco Nexus 1000V and the Virtual Ethernet Module

The Cisco Nexus 1000V is compatible with any upstream physical access layer switch that is Ethernet standard compliant, including the Catalyst 6500 series switch, Cisco Nexus switches, and switches from other network vendors. The Cisco Nexus 1000V is compatible with any server hardware listed in the VMware Hardware Compatibility List (HCL).

Cisco and VMware jointly designed APIs that produced the Cisco Nexus 1000V. The Cisco Nexus 1000V is a distributed virtual switch solution that is fully integrated within the VMware virtual infrastructure, including VMware vCenter for the virtualization administrator. This solution off-loads the configuration of the virtual switch and port groups to the network administrator to enforce a consistent data center network policy.

The Cisco Nexus 1000V has the following components that can virtually emulate a 66-slot modular Ethernet switch with redundant supervisor functions:

Virtual Ethernet module (VEM) data plane—Each hypervisor is embedded with one VEM, a lightweight software component that replaces the virtual switch by performing the following functions:

Advanced networking and security

Switching between directly attached virtual machines

Uplinking to the rest of the network


Note There can be one and only one version of VEM installed on an ESX host at any given time.


Virtual supervisor module (VSM) control plane—The VSM is a standalone, external, physical or virtual appliance that performs the following functions for the Cisco Nexus 1000V system (that is, the combination of the VSM itself and all VEMs it controls):

Configuration

Management

A single VSM can manage up to 64 VEMs.

Monitoring

Diagnostics

Integration with VMware vCenter

Active-standby VSMs increase high availability

In the Cisco Nexus 1000V, traffic is switched between virtual machines locally at each VEM instance. Each VEM also interconnects the local virtual machine with the rest of the network through the upstream access-layer network switch (blade, top-of-rack, end-of-row, and so forth). The VSM runs the control plane protocols and configures the state of each VEM accordingly, but it never forwards packets.

In the Cisco Nexus 1000V, the module slots are primary module 1 and secondary module 2. Either module could act as active or standby. The first server or host is automatically assigned to Module 3. NIC ports are 3/1 and 3/2 (vmnic0 and vmnic1 on ESX host). The ports to which the virtual NIC interfaces connect are virtual ports on the Cisco Nexus 1000V where they are assigned a global number.

Figure 1 shows an example of the Cisco Nexus 1000V distributed architecture.

Figure 1 Cisco Nexus 1000V Distributed Switching Architecture

Obtaining the VEM Software

You can obtain the VEM software from the sources listed in Table 2.

Table 2 Obtaining VEM Software  

Source
Description

VUM

If you are using the VMware vCenter Update Manager (VUM), then VUM obtains the VEM software from the VSM or from the VMware online portal.1

VSM

After the VSM has been installed as a VM, copy the file containing the VEM software from the VSM homepage located at the following url:

http://VSM_IP_Address/

VMware

Download the VEM software from the VMware website.

Click Download Vmware vSphere 4 Enterprise Plus > Download

Download the VMware patches if you are utilizing VMware releases with patches.

Cisco

Download the VEM software from the Cisco website.

1 VMware vCenter Update Manager 4.0 does not list Cisco Nexus 1000V patches or updates, but you can add a Cisco Nexus 1000V patch source using the VMware knowledge base procedure located at the following url:

http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1013134

VMware vCenter Update Manager 4.0 Update 1 and later versions do not have this limitation.


VMware Patch Releases

The Cisco Nexus 1000V VEM software is updated to support VMware patch releases and is available on both the VMware and Cisco software download web sites. The Cisco Nexus 1000V software posted on these websites can be used for both installation and upgrade of the VEM for both the VMware Classic and VMware Embedded platforms.

For information about installing software on an ESX or ESXi, see your VMware documentation.

For information about VEM software packages and compatibility, see the following document:

Cisco Nexus 1000V Compatibility Information, Release 4.0(4)SV1(3d).

Prerequisites for Installing VEM Software

Before installing the Cisco Nexus 1000V VEM software, you must know or do the following:


Note When performing any VUM operation on hosts which are a part of a cluster, ensure that VMWare High Availability (HA), VMware Fault Tolerance (FT), and VMware Distributed Power Management (DPM) features are disabled for the entire cluster. Otherwise, VUM will fail to upgrade the hosts in the cluster.



Note Any ESX patches or updates after ESX400/ESXi400-201006201-UG will be backward compatible with the Cisco Nexus 1000V U2 VEM vib (cross_cisco-vem_v121-4.0.4.1.3.1.0-1.20.2.vib).


You have a copy of your VMware documentation available for installing software on a host.

You have already obtained a copy of the VEM software file from one of the sources listed in Table 2.

If you are installing the VEM software for the first time, you can install it before the Virtual Supervisor Module (VSM) is installed; however, verification and configuration of the VEM can only be done after installing the VSM.

You have already downloaded the correct VEM software based on the current ESX host patch level. For more information, see the Cisco Nexus 1000V Compatibility Information, Release 4.0(4)SV1(3d).

If you install the VEM software on an ESXi host before adding the host to a vSphere Server, you need to reboot the host. The alternative is to add the host to vSphere Server first, and then install the VEM software.

If using VUM for a first-time installation, no action is required by the server administrator.
VUM automatically installs the VEM software.

If you use a proxy server to connect VUM to the Internet, you may need to disable the proxy before starting a VUM upgrade. In VMware versions before VUM Update 1, the proxy prevents VUM from communicating locally with the VSM. For this reason, automatic VEM upgrades may fail if the proxy is not disabled first.

On upstream switches the following configuration is mandatory:

cat6k IOS:
(config-if) portfast trunk
or
(config-if) portfast edge trunk

n5k: (config-if) spanning-tree port type edge trunk

On upstream switches it is highly recommended that you globally enable the following:

Global BPDU Filtering

Global BPDU Guard

On upstream switches where you cannot globally enable BPDU Filtering and BPDU Guard, it is highly recommended that you configure the following:

(config-if) spanning-tree bpdu filter

(config-if) spanning-tree bpdu guard

For more information about configuring spanning-tree, BPDU, or portfast, see the documentation for your upstream switch.

Choosing a VEM Software Installation or Upgrade Procedure

There are two possible procedures for upgrading the VEM software:

Installing or Upgrading the VEM Software

If you are using VUM, then the Cisco Nexus 1000V VEM software will be installed automatically when the host is added to the Cisco Nexus 1000V DVS. When VEM upgrades are triggered from the VSM, the VEM software will be automatically upgraded on the host.


Note For an automated traffic non-disruptive upgrade, you need to install either VMware patch ESX400/ESXi400-201002001 or the ESX400/ESXi400-201006201-UG or later on the host.



Note If your host is ESX/ESXi400-201006201-UG or higher, VUM will install the corresponding Cisco Nexus 1000V Update 2 VEM vib (cross_cisco-vem_v122-4.0.4.1.3.1.0-1.20.2.vib).


If you are using the CLI, use the vihostupdate command or the esxupdate command. See the "Installing or Upgrading the VEM Software Using the CLI" section.

Upgrading the ESX/ESXi Host with VEM Software Installed

If you are using VUM to upgrade the host, you will have to create a host patch baseline and include the appropriate VMware patch or update bulletins and the corresponding Cisco Nexus 1000V VEM bulletin in the baseline. You can then upgrade the host by applying the baseline to the host and remediating.


Note If you are upgrading your ESX/ESXi host from ESX/ESXi400-201006201-UG, then you do not need to include any VEM Bulletin in the baseline.


If you are using the CLI, use the vihostupdate command or the esxupdate command. See the "Upgrading the ESX/ESXi Host with VEM Software Installed Using CLI" section.

Installing or Upgrading the VEM Software Using the CLI

You can use this procedure to install the Cisco Nexus 1000V VEM software on an ESX or ESXi host.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN

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

If you are using vCLI:

You have downloaded and installed the VMware vCLI. For information about installing vCLI, see the VMware vCLI documentation.

You are logged in to the remote host when vCLI is installed.


Note The vSphere Command-Line Interface (vCLI) command set allows you to run common system administration commands against ESX/ESXi systems from any machine with network access to those systems. You can also run most vCLI commands against a vCenter Server system and target any ESX/ESXi system that the vCenter Server system manages. vCLI commands are especially useful for ESXi hosts because ESXi does not include a service console.


If you are using the esxupdate command:

You are logged in to the ESX host.

Check the Cisco Nexus 1000V Compatibility Information, Release 4.0(4)SV1(3d) for compatible versions.

You have already copied the VEM software installation file to the /tmp directory.

You know the name of the VEM software file to be installed.

PROCEDURE


Step 1 Go to the directory where the new VEM software was copied.

[root@serialport -]# cd tmp
[root@serialport tmp]# 

Step 2 Determine which upgrade method you want to use and run the appropriate command:

If you are using vCLI, run the vihostupdate command and install the ESX/ ESXi and VEM software simultaneously.

vihostupdate --install -- bundle "[path to VMware Update offline bundle]","[path to 
Cisco updated VEM offline bundle]" --server [vsphere host IP address]

Note Put the host is maintenance mode prior to running the following command.


Example:

[root@serialport tmp]# vihostupdate -i -b /ESXi400-201002001.zip, 
cisco-vem-v121-4.0.4.1.3.1.0-1.11.2.zip --server 192.0.2.0
Enter username: root
Enter password:
Please wait installation in progress ...
The update completed successfully, but the system needs to be rebooted for the changes 
to be effective.
[root@serialport tmp]#

If you are using the esxupdate command, from the ESX host /tmp directory, install the VEM software as shown in the following example:


Note When using the esxupdate command, you must log in to each host and run the command.


esxupdate --bundle [Updated 1000V VEM offline bundle] --bundle [VMware offline update 
bundle] update

Example: 

[root@cos1-]# esxupdate -b ./cross_cisco-vem-v100-4.0.4.1.3.nn-0.4.nn-release.vib 
update 
cross_cisco-vem-v100-4.0.4.1.1.nn-0.4.nn..   ###################################

Note The highlighted text in the previous command output confirms that the upgrade was successful.


Step 5 Do one of the following:

If the installation was successful, the installation procedure is complete.

If not, see the Recreating the Cisco Nexus 1000V Installation section in Cisco Nexus 1000V Troubleshooting Guide, Release 4.0(4)SV1(3).

You have completed this procedure.


Upgrading the ESX/ESXi Host with VEM Software Installed Using CLI

You can use this procedure to upgrade an ESX or ESXi host by installing a VMware patch or update along with the compatible Cisco Nexus 1000V VEM software.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN

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

If you are using vCLI:

You have downloaded and installed the VMware vCLI. For information about installing vCLI, see the VMware vCLI documentation.

You are logged in to the remote host when vCLI is installed.


Note The vSphere Command-Line Interface (vSphere CLI) command set allows you to run common system administration commands against ESX/ESXi systems from any machine with network access to those systems. You can also run most vSphere CLI commands against a vCenter Server system and target any ESX/ESXi system that the vCenter Server system manages. vSphere CLI commands are especially useful for ESXi hosts because ESXi does not include a service console.


If you are using the esxupdate command:

You are logged in to the ESX host.

Check the Cisco Nexus 1000V Compatibility Information, Release 4.0(4)SV1(3d) for compatible versions.

You have already copied the ESX or ESXi host software and VEM software installation file to the /tmp directory.

You know the name of the ESX or ESXi and VEM software file to be installed.

DETAILED STEPS


Step 1 Go to the directory where the new VEM software was copied.

[root@serialport -]# cd tmp
[root@serialport tmp]# 

Step 2 Determine which upgrade method you want to use and run the appropriate command:


Note If you are upgrading your ESX/ESXi host from ESX/ESXi400-201006201-UG, then you do not need to include any VEM bundle.

vihostupdate --install -- bundle "[path to VMware Update offline bundle]" --server [ESX host IP address]


If you are using vCLI, run the vihostupdate command and install the ESX/ ESXi and VEM software simultaneously.

vihostupdate --install -- bundle "[path to VMware Update offline bundle]","[path to 
Cisco updated VEM offline bundle]" --server [ESX host IP address]

Note Put the host is maintenance mode prior to running the following command.


Example:

[root@serialport tmp]# vihostupdate -i -b /ESXi400-201002001.zip, 
cisco-vem-v122-4.0.4.1.3.1.0-1.11.2.zip --server 192.0.2.0
Enter username: root
Enter password:
Please wait installation in progress  ...
The update completed successfully, but the system needs to be rebooted for the changes

BEFORE YOU BEGIN

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

Make sure the host is not currently a part of any DV switch by removing all of the following active ports from the DV switch:

VMware kernel NICs

Virtual switch interfaces

Virtual NICs

You are logged in to the ESX/ESXi host remotely using SSH.

DETAILED STEPS


Step 1 Uninstall the VEM software using the vem-remove -d command.

This command removes the software from the host, removes the kernel modules, and stops the VEM Agent on the running system.


Note The following example is being run on ESX.


[root@fcs-cos2 ~]# vem-remove -d
Watchdog-vemdpa: Terminating watchdog with PID 6651
Removing CIsco VEM VIB from COS system
Removing VIB cross_cisco-vem-v100-esx_4.0.4.1.2.3.0-1.11.2
Removing cisco-vem-v100-esx ############################### [100%]
Running [/usr/sbin/vmkmod-install.sh]...
Ok.
root@fcs-cos2 ~]#


Note The following example is being run on ESXi.



~ # vem-remove -d
watchdog-vemdpa: Terminating watchdog with PID 8815
Removing Cisco VEM VIB from visor system
Removing VIB cross_cisco-vem-v100-esx_4.0.4.1.2.3.0-1.11.2
Removing packages :cisco-vem-v100-esx ########################### [100%]
Running [/usr/sbin/vmkmod-install.sh]...
ok.
Cleaning up running visor system
~ #

Step 2 Verify that the software was successfully removed by checking for the output of the esxupdate --vib-view query command:


[root@fcs-cos2 -]# esxupdate --vib-view query

------------------VIB ID------------------ Package State -----------Timestamp------------ 
cross_cisco-vem-v100-esx_4.0.4.1.3.27-0.4.3 retired       2009-07-02T15:26:45.994264-05:00 
root@fcs-cos2 -]#

Step 3 Do one of the following:

If the removal was successful, your uninstallation is complete.
