fabric-vnic-create

Netvisor allows the creation of a management interface on a Virtual Network Interface Card (vNIC) for fabric communication. In the current fabric, Netvisor allows two subnets: one for out-of-band provisioning and fabric, and one for in-band fabric. This feature allows three subnets per fabric:

    • An out-of-band provisioning subnet
    • An out-of-band fabric subnet
    • An in-band fabric subnet

Each subnets uses a separate VLAN for traffic isolation purposes. When a vNIC is created for the management interface, fabric communication automatically switches to this vNIC, without additional configuration.

Syntax   fabric-vnic-create

ip ip-address

Specify the IP address of the vNIC.

netmask netmask

Specify the netmask for the IP address.

vlan vlan-id

Specify the VLAN ID for the vNIC. This must be unique to the vNIC.

Defaults   None

Access   Network Administrator

History   Command introduced in Version 5.1.1.

Usage   Use this command to create a vNIC for fabric management.

Examples  To create a vNIC with IP address, 20.1.1.1/24 on VLAN 22, use the following syntax:

CLI network-admin@switch > fabric-vnic-create ip 20.1.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 vlan 22

fabric-vnic-delete

Netvisor allows the creation of a management interface on a Virtual Network Interface Card (vNIC) for fabric communication. In the current fabric, Netvisor allows two subnets: one for out-of-band provisioning and fabric, and one for in-band fabric. This feature allows three subnets per fabric:

    • An out-of-band provisioning subnet
    • An out-of-band fabric subnet
    • An in-band fabric subnet

Each subnets uses a separate VLAN for traffic isolation purposes. When a vNIC is created for the management interface, fabric communication automatically switches to this vNIC, without additional configuration.

Syntax   fabric-vnic-delete

Defaults   None

Access   Network Administrator

History   Command introduced in Version 5.1.0.

Usage   Use this command to delete a vNIC for fabric management.

Examples  To modify a vNIC with IP address, 20.1.1.1/24 on VLAN 32, use the following syntax:

CLI network-admin@switch > fabric-vnic-delete

fabric-vnic-modify

Netvisor allows the creation of a management interface on a Virtual Network Interface Card (vNIC) for fabric communication. In the current fabric, Netvisor allows two subnets: one for out-of-band provisioning and fabric, and one for in-band fabric. This feature allows three subnets per fabric:

    • An out-of-band provisioning subnet
    • An out-of-band fabric subnet
    • An in-band fabric subnet

Each subnets uses a separate VLAN for traffic isolation purposes. When a vNIC is created for the management interface, fabric communication automatically switches to this vNIC, without additional configuration.

Syntax   fabric-vnic-modify


ip ip-address

Specify the IP address of the vNIC.

netmask netmask

Specify the netmask for the IP address.

vlan vlan-id

Specify the VLAN ID for the vNIC. This must be unique to the vNIC.

Defaults   None

Access   Network Administrator

History   Command introduced in Version 2.6.0.

Usage   Use this command to modify a vNIC for fabric management.

Examples  To modify a vNIC with IP address, 20.1.1.1/24 on VLAN 32, use the following syntax:

CLI network-admin@switch > fabric-vnic-modify ip 20.1.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 vlan 32

fabric-vnic-show

Netvisor allows the creation of a management interface on a Virtual Network Interface Card (vNIC) for fabric communication. In the current fabric, Netvisor allows two subnets: one for out-of-band provisioning and fabric, and one for in-band fabric. This feature allows three subnets per fabric:

    • An out-of-band provisioning subnet
    • An out-of-band fabric subnet
    • An in-band fabric subnet

Each subnets uses a separate VLAN for traffic isolation purposes. When a vNIC is created for the management interface, fabric communication automatically switches to this vNIC, without additional configuration.

Syntax   fabric-vnic-show

ip ip-address

Displays the IP address of the vNIC.

netmask netmask

Displays the netmask for the IP address.

vlan vlan-id

Displays the VLAN ID for the vNIC. This must be unique to the vNIC.

Defaults   None

Access   Network Administrator

History   Command introduced in Version 2.6.0.

Usage   Use this command to display information about a fabric management vNIC.

Examples  To display information about a fabric management vNI, use the following syntax:

CLI network-admin@switch > fabric-vnic-show

nic:        vmgmt0

ip:         20.1.1.1/24

mac:        66:0e:94:6a:2a:ad

vlan:       20

nic-config: enable

nic-state:  up

 

From the output, you can see the status of the interface as enabled and up as well as the vNIC name, IP address, MAC address, and VLAN.
