Information About Domains
You must create a domain for the Cisco Nexus 1000VE. This process is part of the initial setup of the Cisco Nexus 1000VE when you install the software. If you need to create a domain later, you can do so by using the svs-domain command or the procedures described in this chapter.
Layer 3 Control
Layer 3 control, or IP connectivity, is supported between the Virtual Supervisor Module (VSM) and the Virtual Service Engine (VSE) for control and packet traffic. With Layer 3 control, a VSM can be Layer 3 accessible and can control VSEs that reside in a separate Layer 2 network. In the Layer 3 mode, all the VSEs that are managed by VSM and the VSM can be in different networks.
