Feature History for vEthernet Interfaces

Information About vEthernet Interfaces

Virtual Ethernet (vEthernet or vEth) interfaces are logical interfaces. Each vEthernet interface corresponds to a switch interface that is connected to a virtual port. The interface types are as follows:

Virtual Machine (VM) (interfaces connected to VM NICs)

Service console

vmkernel

vEthernet interfaces are created on the Cisco NX-OS to represent virtual ports in use on the distributed virtual switch.


Note System-message logging levels for the Virtual Ethernet interfaces feature must meet or exceed Cisco DCNM requirements. During device discovery, Cisco DCNM detects inadequate logging levels and raises them to the minimum requirements. Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switches that run Cisco NX-OS Release 4.0 are an exception. For Cisco NX-OS Release 4.0, prior to device discovery, use the command-line interface to configure logging levels to meet or exceed Cisco DCNM requirements. For more information, see the Fundamentals Configuration Guide, Cisco DCNM for LAN, Release 5.x .
