    How VMware NSX and Cisco Nexus 5000/7000 are integrated

    nkv Novice

      Hello Experts,


      I am supporting a VMware envornment where VMware NSX is configured and the segment ID is 5000-8000. On the physical network side we have Cisco Nexus 5000/7000 are configured.


      I need help on to understand how the NSX which has VXLAN 5000-8000 created communicates between the 3 ESXi hosts because the VXLAN if I am not wrong are not created on the Cisco Switches end. So how does Cisco Switch is able to handle this traffic flow between the ESXi hosts?


      For the traffic to go between 2 ESXi host it has go to via Network switches, right??


      Any configuration needed on Cisco switches so that they support VMware NSX traffic?


      Please guide. Quick response appreciated.
