Lab Exercises

  1. Initial Switch Configuration
    1. In this exercise, you will configure the Cisco Nexus 5000 Series and Cisco MDS 9124 switches for out-of-band management and explore the Cisco Nexus NX-OS operating system command line interface.
  2. Configuring Cisco virtual PortChannel (vPC), Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), and the Cisco Fabric Extender (FEX) Using the CLI
    1. In this exercise you will use the NX-OS CLI to configure interfaces on the Cisco Nexus 5000 Series for vPC, FCoE, and the FEX, as well as the Cisco MDS 9124 switch, for basic Fibre Channel connectivity.
  3. Configuring vPC, FCoE, and the FEX Using Cisco Fabric Manager, Device Manager, and Data Center Networking Manager
    1. In this exercise, you will use Cisco Fabric Manager, Device Manager and Data Center Networking Manager to configure interfaces on the Cisco Nexus 5000 for vPC, FCoE, and the FEX, as well as the Cisco MDS 9124 for basic Fibre Channel connectivity
  4. Configure VMware vCenter
    1. In this exercise, you will add ESXi hosts and SAN attached storage to VMware vCenter, and then clone a virtual machine.
  5. Configure Virtual Machine Networking
    1. In this exercise, you will configure the virtual machine for access to the LAN and SAN
  6. Configuring Overlay Transport Virtualization (OTV)
    1. In this exercise, you will configure the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series for OTV preparing for a long-distance OTV event.
  7. Cisco Nexus 1000V NX-OS 4.0(4)SV1(3)
    1. In this exercise you will deploy a Cisco Nexus 1000V Virtual Supervisor Module using an open virtualization appliance (OVA) file, and then install the Cisco Nexus 1000V switch using the installer
  8. Configuring VMware vMotion
    1. In this exercise you will use Cisco NX-OS CLI to configure port profiles, and then execute a vMotion event.
