Second Edition


The whole advisor to making plans, configuring, coping with, and troubleshooting NX-OS within the enterprise–updated with new applied sciences and examples


Using Cisco Nexus switches and the NX-OS working procedure, facts heart pros can construct unified middle networks that bring unparalleled scalability, resilience, operational continuity, flexibility, and function. NX-OS and Cisco Nexus Switching, moment version, is the definitive advisor to employing those step forward applied sciences in real-world environments. This greatly up-to-date version includes 5 new chapters addressing a variety of new applied sciences, together with FabricPath, OTV, IPv6, QoS, VSG, Multi-Hop FCoE, LISP, MPLS, Layer three on Nexus 5000, and Config sync. It additionally provides a start-to-finish, step by step case learn of an company consumer who migrated from Cisco Catalyst to a Nexus-based structure, illuminated with insights which are acceptable in almost any firm information middle. Drawing on a long time of expertise with firm consumers, the authors conceal each side of deploying, configuring, working, and troubleshooting NX-OS in today’s information middle. You’ll locate up-to-date top practices for prime availability, virtualization, safeguard,
L2/L3 protocol and community help, multicast, serviceability, provision of networking and garage prone, and extra. better of all, the authors current all of the confirmed instructions, pattern configurations, and information you want to follow those top practices on your facts center.


Ron Fuller, CCIE No. 5851 (Routing and Switching/Storage Networking), Technical advertising Engineer on Cisco’s Nexus 7000 group, makes a speciality of supporting buyers layout end-to-end info heart architectures. Ron has 21 years of adventure, together with 7 at Cisco. He has spoken at Cisco live to tell the tale VDCs, NX-OS multicast, and common layout.


David Jansen, CCIE No. 5952 (Routing/Switching), is a Cisco Technical recommendations Architect focusing on company info heart structure. He has two decades of event, 15 of them at Cisco (6 as an answer architect); and has brought numerous Cisco dwell shows on NX-OS and information middle options.


Matthew McPherson, senior structures engineer and suggestions architect for the Cisco vital choose Operation, makes a speciality of facts middle architectures. He has 12 years of expertise operating with carrier services and big finance and production agencies, and possesses deep technical wisdom of routing, switching, and security.


  • Understand the NX-OS command line, virtualization gains, and dossier system

  • Configure IP multicast with PIM, Auto-RP, and MSDP
  • Secure your community with CTS, SGTs, ACLs, CoPP, and DAI
  • Establish a relied on set of community units with Cisco TrustSec
  • Maximize availability with ISSU, stateful technique restart/switchover, and continuous forwarding
  • Improve serviceability with SPAN, ERSPAN, configuration checkpoints/rollback, packet research, clever name domestic, Python, and PoAP
  • Unify garage and Ethernet materials with FCoE, NPV, and NPIV
  • Take complete benefit of Nexus 1000V in a virtualized environment
  • Achieve enhanced QoS with MQ CLI, queuing, and marking
  • Extend L2 networks throughout L3 infrastructure with Overlay delivery Virtualization (OTV)
  • Deliver on SLAs via integrating MPLS program parts similar to L3 VPNs, site visitors engineering, QoS, and mVPN
  • Support mobility through the hot Locator identity Separation Protocol (LISP)
  • Walk step by step via a pragmatic Nexus and NX-OS information middle migration

Each one SNMP model has varied safeguard types or degrees. such a lot company clients are looking to enforce SNMPv3 since it deals encryption to move administration info (or site visitors) around the community. the protection point determines if an SNMP message should be safe and authenticated. numerous protection degrees exist inside a safety version: • noAuthNoPriv: safeguard point that doesn't offer authentication or encryption • authNoPriv: safety point that gives authentication yet doesn't supply encryption • authPriv: defense point that offers either authentication and encryption Cisco NX-OS helps the next SNMP criteria: • SNMPv1: basic community-string dependent entry. • SNMPv2c: RFC 2575-based staff entry that may be tied into RBAC version. • SNMPv3: allows for 2 self reliant defense mechanisms, authentication (Hashed Message Authentication leveraging both safe Hash set of rules [SHA-1] or Message Digest five [MD5] algorithms) and encryption (Data Encryption general [DES] because the default and AES), to make sure safe conversation among NMS station and NX-OS. either mechanisms are carried out, as proven in instance 1-8. simply because NX-OS is actually modular and hugely to be had, the NX-OS implementation of SNMP helps stateless restarts for SNMP. NX-OS has additionally applied virtualization aid for SNMP; NX-OS helps one example of SNMP in line with VDC. SNMP can be VRF-aware, which permits you to configure SNMP to take advantage of a selected VRF to arrive the community administration host. instance 1-8 demonstrates the right way to let SNMPv3 on NX-OS. instance 1-8. allowing SNMPv3 on NX-OS click on the following to view code photograph N7010-1# conf t input configuration instructions, one according to line. finish with CNTL/Z.
