Overview

Cisco Nexus Dashboard Fabric Controller is the comprehensive management solution for all NX-OS deployments spanning LAN Fabric, SAN, and IP Fabric for Media (IPFM) networks in data centers powered by Cisco. Cisco Nexus Dashboard Fabric Controller also supports other devices, such as IOS-XE switches, IOS-XR routers, and non-Cisco devices. Being a multi-fabric controller, Cisco Nexus Dashboard Fabric Controller manages multiple deployment models like VXLAN EVPN, Classic 3-Tier, and Routed based fabrics for LAN while providing ready-to-use control, management, monitoring, and automation capabilities for all these environments. In addition, Cisco Nexus Dashboard Fabric Controller when enabled as a SAN Controller automates Cisco MDS Switches and Cisco Nexus Family infrastructure in NX-OS mode.

This document describes the features, bugs, and limitations for Cisco Nexus Dashboard Fabric Controller software. For more information about this product, see Related Content.

Nexus Dashboard Fabric Controller primarily focuses on Control and Management for three primary market segments:

      LAN networking including VXLAN, Multi-Site, Classic Ethernet, and External Fabrics supporting Cisco Nexus switches running standalone NX-OS, with additional support for IOS-XR, IOS-XE and adjacent Host, Compute, Virtual Machine, and Container Management systems.

      SAN networking for Cisco MDS and Cisco Nexus switches running standalone NX-OS, including support for integration with storage arrays and additionally Host, Compute, Virtual Machine, and Container Management systems.

      Media Control for Multicast Video production networks running Cisco Nexus switches operated as standalone NX-OS, with additional integrations for 3rd party media control systems.

Previously, DCNM was an application server running on a VM deployed via OVA or ISO, a physical appliance deployed via ISO, or software installed on a qualified Windows or Linux machine. Cisco Nexus Dashboard Fabric Controller, Release 12 is available as an application running exclusively on top of the Cisco Nexus Dashboard Virtual or Physical Appliance.

Virtual Nexus Dashboard deployment with OVA is also referred to as virtual Nexus Dashboard (vND) deployment, while the deployment of Nexus Dashboard on a physical appliance (Service Engine) is known as physical Nexus Dashboard (pND) deployment. To deploy Nexus Dashboard based on your requirement, refer to Cisco Nexus Dashboard Deployment Guide.

Beginning with Release 12.0.1a, Cisco Nexus Dashboard Fabric Controller has a single installation mode. It supports selection from multiple personas in a single installation. After the Nexus Dashboard Fabric Controller Release 12.0.1a is installed, you can choose from one of the following personas:

      Fabric Discovery—Discover, Monitor, and Visualize LAN Deployments.

      Fabric Controller—LAN Controller for Classic Ethernet (vPC), Routed, VXLAN, and IP Fabric for Media Deployments.

      SAN Controller—SAN Controller for MDS and Nexus switches. Enhanced SAN Analytics with streaming telemetry.

All features/services are modularized, broken into smaller microservices, and the required microservices are orchestrated based on the feature set or installation modes. Therefore, if any feature or microservice is down, only that microservice is restarted and recovered, resulting in minimal disruption.

In contrast to the previous DCNM Active-Standby HA model which did not utilize the resources of both servers effectively, Cisco Nexus Dashboard Fabric Controller introduces Active-Active HA deployment model utilizing all three nodes for deploying microservices. This has significant improvement in both latency and effective resource utilization.

For NDFC to run on top of the virtual Nexus Dashboard instance, you must enable promiscuous mode on port groups that are associated with interfaces where External Service IP addresses are specified. By default, for LAN deployments, 2 external service IP addresses are required for the Nexus Dashboard management interface subnet. Therefore, you must enable promiscuous mode for the associated port group. If inband management or EPL is enabled, you must specify External Service IP addresses in the Nexus Dashboard data interface subnet. The promiscuous mode also must be enabled for the Nexus Dashboard data/fabric interface port-group. For NDFC SAN Controller, promiscuous mode only must be enabled on the Nexus Dashboard data interface associated port-group.

Published Release Notes for Cisco Nexus Dashboard Fabric Controller Release 12.0.1a

Deployment Options

The following deployment options are available for Cisco Nexus Dashboard Fabric Controller:

      NDFC on Single node (non-HA Cluster)

On Single node Nexus Dashboard, you can deploy NDFC with the following personas:

    SAN Controller with SAN Insights

    Fabric Controller for IP Fabric for Media (IPFM) deployments

    Fabric Controller for lab/non-production environments (<= 25 switches)

      NDFC on a three-node Cluster (Active-Active HA mode)

On 3-Node Nexus Dashboard, you can deploy NDFC with the following personas:

    Fabric Discovery

    Fabric Controller

    SAN Controller with SAN Insights

Note:      For NDFC deployments, the Nexus Dashboard node should have a different subnet on the management interface and the data/fabric interface. In addition, in a 3-node Nexus Dashboard cluster, all Nexus Dashboard nodes should be layer-2 adjacent. In other words, the 3 Nexus Dashboard nodes must all belong to the same management and data networks respectively.
In summary, Nexus Dashboard Fabric Controller is not supported on Nexus Dashboard nodes that are deployed with management and data networks using overlapping subnets.

In this deployment, all 3 ND nodes function as Masters. Three Node HA is an active-active solution, that is all nodes are utilized to run micro-services of Nexus Dashboard Fabric Controller. When a node fails, Nexus Dashboard Fabric Controller microservices running on the node that failed will be moved to the other two nodes. Nexus Dashboard Fabric Controller performs normally under one node failure condition, it is expected there will be a brief disruption to services that have to be migrated on node failure. But, once the migration of services is complete, the supported scale continues to function. But a system running with one failed node is not the desired situation and must be rectified as soon as possible. A three-node cluster cannot tolerate failure of two nodes and all Nexus Dashboard Fabric Controller services will be disrupted.

For virtual Nexus Dashboard OVA deployments on ESXi environments, it is imperative that promiscuous mode is enabled on the port-groups that are associated with Nexus Dashboard management and Nexus Dashboard data/fabric interface port-groups. Otherwise, some of the functionality such as SNMP trap, Image management, Endpoint Locator, SAN Insights and so on will not work.

Note that Cisco NDFC Release 12.0.1a and Release 12.0.2f cannot be cohosted with Nexus Dashboard Insights on Nexus Dashboard.

Note:      Nexus Dashboard cluster federation is not supported with Nexus Dashboard Fabric Controller.

Nexus Dashboard Networks

When first configuring Nexus Dashboard, you must provide two IP addresses for the two Nexus Dashboard interfaces—one connected to the Data Network and the other to the Management Network. The data network is used for the nodes' clustering and Cisco fabrics traffic. The management network is used to connect to the Cisco Nexus Dashboard Web UI, CLI, or API.

The Management and Data Interfaces within a node must be in different subnets for Nexus Dashboard Fabric Controller. The interfaces between the nodes must be within the same Layer-2 Network (or same Layer-3 subnet).

Connectivity between the nodes is required on both networks with the round trip time (RTT) not exceeding 150ms for Nexus Dashboard Fabric Controller. Other applications running in the same Nexus Dashboard cluster may have lower RTT requirements and you must always use the lowest RTT requirement when deploying multiple applications in the same Nexus Dashboard cluster. Refer to the Cisco Nexus Dashboard Deployment Guide for more information.

When Nexus Dashboard Fabric Controller is deployed on Nexus Dashboard, it uses each of the two networks for different purposes as shown in the following table:

You can also watch the video What's New in Cisco NDFC, Release 12.0.1a.

Infrastructure Enhancements

The following infrastructure features are new in Cisco NDFC Release 12.0.1a.

Feature

Description

New User Interface

NDFC implements a new look and feel with an intuitive React JavaScript GUI that aligns with Nexus Dashboard GUI and supports modernized topology views. Various dashboards are introduced at the global, fabric, and device levels, with up-to-date health scores and performance summary.

Microservices architecture

NDFC embraces a complete Kubernetes-based microservices architecture on Nexus Dashboard. By moving away from a monolithic infrastructure to a containerized and modular infrastructure, IT can leverage this new model to enable elastic scale and improve performance and reliability.

Three-node Active-Active Cluster support

NDFC supports Active-Active high availability (HA) with a 3 node ND cluster. The Nexus Dashboard nodes must be Layer-2 adjacent to the management and data interfaces. Layer 3 reachability among Nexus Dashboard nodes will be introduced in future releases.

Single Installation mode with Feature Enabler

NDFC uses a run-time feature enabler. This feature management capability allows you to enable or disable different features and feature-sets (personas) including Fabric Controller (LAN), SAN Controller, IP Fabric for Media (IPFM), and Fabric Discovery. Depending on what features/feature-sets are enabled or disabled, the menus are dynamically updated with appropriate parent or sub-options for improved user experience.

Granular RBAC Model

NDFC supports the fine-grained Role Based Access Control (RBAC) offered by the Nexus Dashboard platform. A user can be assigned different roles in different fabrics/sites that they have access to. For this purpose, one can create different security domains on the Nexus Dashboard, associate appropriate NDFC sites/fabrics to those security domains and then indicate which user has what roles in what security domains. In summary, a user can have different roles on different ND security domains. By default, all NDFC sites are part of an ‘all’ domain unless they are moved to a user-defined security domain.

Email Programmable Reports

Beginning with Release 12.0.1a, you can configure NDFC to receive programmable reports over email.

User Feedback

From Release 12.0.1a, you can provide feedback on the application through the Cisco Nexus Dashboard Fabric Controller Web UI. You can ask for new features/enhancements using this feature. The request is sent to Cisco Nexus Dashboard Fabric Controller marketing team, who evaluate the requirement so that they can be included as features or enhancements in the upcoming releases.

Tech-Support and Backup & Restore

All NDFC operations including tech-support collection, scheduled backups, and restore operations are now supported via an intuitive GUI-based workflow. The same process can be used to restore a DCNM 11.x backup (aka upgrade) or a NDFC 12.0.1a backup on a new NDFC installation.

Visualize Templates usage

From Release 12.0.1a, a column on Operations > Templates displays the number of times the template is used in the Reference Count column.

Smart Licensing using Policy

Beginning with Cisco Nexus Dashboard Fabric Controller Release 12.0.1a, you can use the Smart Licensing feature to manage licenses at device-level and renew them if necessary. Cisco Smart Licensing Using Policy aims to increase ease of use by enforcing fewer restrictions with the goal of not interrupting the operations of customer networks.

NDFC packages several best-practice configuration templates for IOS-XR systems to support various use cases related to edge router and core router scenarios. In managed mode, Configuration Compliance is enabled for all Cisco devices in External Fabrics including IOS-XR devices.

Configuring Overlay VRFs/Networks in Easy Fabrics using CLI or Configuration Profiles

In DCNM 11.x release, in Easy Fabric based VXLAN EVPN deployments, overlay configuration intent was created and deployed on Nexus switches using configuration profiles. Now with NDFC 12.0.1a release, one can configure overlays using either vanilla CLIs or using configuration profiles. The user can make this choice on a per fabric basis where a configuration knob has been provided to select the desired overlay mode.

Bulk Import of Network Attachments

For quick overlay provisioning, NDFC 12.0.1a supports a CSV import/export option that allows bulk attach/detach of multiple networks on multiple switches at one go.

Changing Switch management IP address

After importing and management of NX-OS device via its seed IP address, now can you change the seed IP address of a switch on the NDFC in a nondisruptive manner without requiring the device to be deleted and reimported. This ensures that all state about that device is maintained on the NDFC during this entire transition.

New view for All Fabrics

For quick overlay provisioning, NDFC 12.0.1a supports importing or exporting (in .csv format) that allows bulk attaching or detaching of multiple networks on multiple switches at one go.

Fabric Controller with IP for Media (IPFM) Enhancements

The following features are new in Cisco NDFC Release 12.0.1a for the Fabric Controller for IPFM Fabrics.

Feature

Description
