Configuring VLANs

This chapter describes how to configure virtual LANs (VLANs) on Cisco NX-OS devices using Cisco Data Center Manager (DCNM) for LAN.

For more information about the Cisco DCNM features, see the .

This chapter includes the following sections:

Information About VLANs

You can use VLANs to divide the network into separate logical areas at the Layer 2 level. VLANs can also be considered as broadcast domains.

Any switch port can belong to a VLAN, and unicast broadcast and multicast packets are forwarded and flooded only to end stations in that VLAN. Each VLAN is considered a logical network, and packets destined for stations that do not belong to the VLAN must be forwarded through a router.

The Cisco NX-OS release that is running on a managed device many not support all the features or settings described in this chapter. For the latest feature information and caveats, see the documentation and release notes for your platform and software release.

Understanding VLANs

A VLAN is a group of end stations in a switched network that is logically segmented by function or application, without regard to the physical locations of the users. VLANs have the same attributes as physical LANs, but you can group end stations even if they are not physically located on the same LAN segment.

Any switch port can belong to a VLAN, and unicast, broadcast, and multicast packets are forwarded and flooded only to end stations in that VLAN. Each VLAN is considered as a logical network, and packets destined for stations that do not belong to the VLAN must be forwarded through a router. The following figure shows VLANs as logical networks. The stations in the engineering department are assigned to one VLAN, the stations in the marketing department are assigned to another VLAN, and the stations in the accounting department are assigned to another VLAN.

VLANs are usually associated with IP subnetworks. For example, all the end stations in a particular IP subnet belong to the same VLAN. To communicate between VLANs, you must route the traffic.

By default, a newly created VLAN is operational; that is, the newly created VLAN is in the no shutdown condition. Additionally, you can configure VLANs to be in the active state, which is passing traffic, or the suspended state, in which the VLANs are not passing packets. By default, the VLANs are in the active state and pass traffic.


Note


See the Interfaces Configuration Guide, Cisco DCNM for LAN, Release 5.x, for complete information on configuring VLAN network interfaces and subinterfaces, as well as assigning IP addresses. This feature must be enabled before you can configure VLAN network interfaces.


VLAN Ranges


Note


The extended system ID is always automatically enabled in Cisco NX-OS devices.


The device supports up to 4094 VLANs in accordance with the IEEE 802.1Q standard. The software organizes these VLANs into ranges, and you use each range slightly differently.

For information about configuration limits, see the documentation for your switch.

This table describes the VLAN ranges.

Table 1 VLAN Ranges

VLANs Numbers

Range

Usage

1

Normal

Cisco default. You can use this VLAN, but you cannot modify or delete it.

2—1005

Normal

You can create, use, modify, and delete these VLANs.

1006—3967 and 4048—4093

Extended

You can create, name, and use these VLANs. You cannot change the following parameters:

  • The state is always active.
  • The VLAN is always enabled. You cannot shut down these VLANs.

3968-4047 and 4094

Internally allocated

These 80 VLANs and VLAN 4094 are allocated for internal device use. You cannot create, delete, or modify any VLANs within the block reserved for internal use.

The devices support up to 4094 VLANs in each VDC in the following ranges:
  • VLAN 1—Normal range. This is the Cisco default VLAN. You can use this VLAN, but you cannot modify or delete it.
  • VLANs 2-1005—Normal range. You can create, use, modify, and delete these VLANs.
  • VLANs 1006-4094—Extended range. You can create, name, and use these VLANs. The state is always active and the VLANs are always enabled. You cannot shut down these VLANs.
  • Certain VLANs are allocated for internal use. You cannot create, delete, or modify any VLANs within this block reserved for internal use.

The software allocates a group of VLAN numbers for features like multicast and diagnostics, that need to use internal VLANs for their operation. You cannot use, modify, or delete any of the VLANs in the reserved group. You can display the VLANs that are allocated internally and their associated use.

Creating, Deleting, and Modifying VLANs


Note


By default, all Cisco NX-OS ports are Layer 3 ports.


VLANs are numbered from 1 to 4094 for each VDC. All ports that you have configured as switch ports belong to the default VLAN when you first bring up the switch as a Layer 2 device. The default VLAN (VLAN1) uses only default values, and you cannot create, delete, or suspend activity in the default VLAN.

You create a VLAN by assigning a number to it; you can delete VLANs and move them from the active operational state to the suspended operational state. If you attempt to create a VLAN with an existing VLAN ID, the device goes into the VLAN submode but does not create the same VLAN again.

Newly created VLANs remain unused until Layer 2 ports are assigned to the specific VLAN. All the ports are assigned to VLAN1 by default.

Depending on the range of the VLAN, you can configure the following parameters for VLANs (except the default VLAN):

  • VLAN name
  • VLAN state
  • Shutdown or not shutdown

Note


See the Interfaces Configuration Guide, Cisco DCNM for LAN, Release 5.x, for information on configuring ports as VLAN access or trunk ports and assigning ports to VLANs.


When you delete a specified VLAN, the ports associated to that VLAN become inactive and no traffic flows. When you delete a specified VLAN from a trunk port, only that VLAN is shut down and traffic continues to flow on all the other VLANs through the trunk port.

However, the system retains all the VLAN-to-port mapping for that VLAN, and when you reenable or re-create, that specified VLAN, the system automatically reinstates all the original ports to that VLAN. The static MAC addresses and aging time for that VLAN are not restored when the VLAN is reenabled.

VTP

VTP is a Layer 2 messaging protocol that maintains VLAN consistency by managing the addition, deletion, and renaming of VLANs within a VTP domain. A VTP domain is made up of one or more network devices that share the same VTP domain name and that are connected with trunk interfaces. Each network device can be in only one VTP domain.

Layer 2 trunk interfaces, Layer 2 port channels, and virtual port channels (vPCs) support VTP functionality.

The VTP is disabled by default on the device. You can enable and configure VTP using the command-line interface (CLI). When VTP is disabled, the device does not relay any VTP protocol packets.


Note


Before Release 5.1(1), VTP worked only in transparent mode in the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series devices, allowing you to extend a VTP domain across the device.


When the device is in the VTP transparent mode, the device relays all VTP protocol packets that it receives on a trunk port to all other trunk ports. When you create or modify a VLAN that is in VTP transparent mode, those VLAN changes affect only the local device. A VTP transparent network device does not advertise its VLAN configuration and does not synchronize its VLAN configuration based on received advertisements.


Note


VLAN 1 is required on all trunk ports used for switch interconnects if VTP is supported in the network. Disabling VLAN 1 from any of these ports prevents VTP from functioning properly.


If you enable VTP, you must configure either version 1 or version 2. If you are using VTP in a Token Ring environment, you must use version 2.

High Availability for VLANs

The software supports high availability for both stateful and stateless restarts, as during a cold reboot, for VLANs. For the stateful restarts, the software supports a maximum of three retries. If you try more than 3 times within 10 seconds of a restart, the software reloads the supervisor module.

You can upgrade or downgrade the software seamlessly when you use VLANs.

Virtualization Support for VLANs

The software supports virtual device contexts (VDCs), and VLAN configuration and operation are local to the VDC.


Note


See the Virtual Device Context Configuration Guide, Cisco DCNM for LAN, Release 5.x for complete information on VDCs and assigning resources.


When you create a new VDC, the device automatically creates a new default VLAN, VLAN1, and internally reserves VLANs for device use.

One or more VLANs can be associated with a role to either allow or disallow the user to configure it. When a VLAN is associated with a role, the corresponding interfaces will also be subjected to the same check. For instance, if a role is allowed to access VLAN1, then that role also has access to the interfaces that have that VLAN. If an interface does not have the VLAN associated with a role, that interface is not accessible to that role.

Configuring a VLAN


Note


See the , for information on using the Topology feature with VLANs.



Note


See the Interfaces Configuration Guide, Cisco DCNM for LAN, Release 5.x, for information on assigning Layer 2 interfaces to VLANs (access or trunk ports). All interfaces are in VLAN 1 by default.


Creating and Deleting a VLAN

You can create or delete all VLANs except the default VLAN and those VLANs that are internally allocated for use by the device.

Once a VLAN is created, it is automatically in the active state.


Note


When you delete a VLAN, ports associated to that VLAN shut down. Therefore, no traffic flows and the packets are dropped. On trunk ports, the port remains open and the traffic from all other VLANs except the deleted VLAN continues to flow.


If you create a range of VLANs and some of these VLANs cannot be created, the software returns a message listing the failed VLANs, and all the other VLANs in the specified range are created.
