Cisco VTS Features
Cisco VTS 2.1 supports the following features:

Guide me to setup—Select this option to start the Setup wizard that guides you through the initial configuration tasks to get your system ready for use.
I will set up myself—If you do not need the guided set up wizard, you can choose this option. This option takes you to the Quick Guide, which displays the tasks that need to be completed. See the Getting Started chapter of the Cisco Virtual Topology System 2.1 User Guide for more details.
Fabric Extenders(FEX) Support — FEX support is available for Cisco Nexus 2000 series of Fabric Extenders (C2248TP-E9500, C2232PP).
vCenter Enhancements — Cisco VTS now supports VMware vCentre 5.5 Update 2 and 6.0 Update 1 Server Appliance.
Resource Pool-Group-based VLAN Pool — Cisco VTS supports group-based VLAN pools. Instead of specifying a per-device VLAN pool it is now possible to create a Group-based VLAN pool.
IOS XRv connectivity — In VTS 2.1 IOS XRv is connected to both the management and underlay network.
SSH to IOS XRv — VTS 2.1 uses SSH to connect to IOS XRv.
VTF Installation — In VTS 2.1, VTF installations on compute hosts are automated. VTF is no longer provided as a separate qcow2/ova image but instead is packaged with the VTC VM. VTF is installed using the GUI. See the Installing the Virtual Topology Forwarder section in the Cisco Virtual Topology System 2.1 Installation Guide for details. Logs for the automated VTF are found under /var/vts/log/vts-vmm-plugin-install.log.
Static VLAN for Port- Attach — In VTS 2.1, you can specify the VLAN ID to be used for port-attachment.
Topology Discovery enhancements—In VTS 2.1, you can import the device inventory directly after discovery is completed. There is no option to export the discovered devices to a CSV and then import back to VTS. See the Managing Inventory chapter of the Cisco Virtual Topology System 2.1 User Guide for more details.
