Subject RE: VMWare and distributed vSwitch support
Date Tue, 09 Oct 2012 04:45:35 GMT
Last but not least - to understand the reason for not supporting dvs - is that something that
is in low demand or just not on the roadmap? 

The reason for my previous comment, as you may know, dvs is now more or less a standard. We
were hoping that ACS 4 would have dvs support and were putting off the larger CS deployment
on-hold until dvs support would arrive (since some release notes mentioned dvs support with
cisco) we just did not know that would be so exclusive.

Any feedback as to when or if CS is planning to support vmware native dvs - would be truly

Thank you for making such a great product

So native VmWare distributed vswitch is not supported, but if I pay a small truck of gold
to Cisco and get Nexus line - it may work then. :)

At least now I know I need to avoid dvs in my setup. 

Thank you for your response,

The Cisco Nexus 1000v is a distributed switch that is a replacement for the VMWare dvSwitch.

The Nexus is supported in CloudPlatform as well as ACS 4.0. The VMWare dvSwitch is supported
in neither.

 Does this mean 4.0 supports distributed vSwitch?
