This document provides a quick reference of recommended best practices for managing a Cisco Nexus 7000 Series switch using the Cisco NX-OS command-line interface (CLI). This document includes configuration best practices and procedural recommendations for the most common protocols and features deployed in production networks. It is intended to supplement the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switches product documentation that is available on cisco.com and should not be used as a replacement for that documentation.
This document is organized in feature specific chapters to add structure and clarity when protocols and features are related to each other. It is important to understand that the recommended best practices do not need to be implemented simultaneously or in any particular order. Not all best practice recommendations are applicable to every network environment.
