Information About Installing the Cisco VSG on the Cisco Cloud
Services Platform
The Cisco VSG software is provided with the other virtual service blade (VSB) software in the Cisco Cloud
Services Platform bootflash: repository directory. The Cisco Cloud Services Platform has up to six virtual

service blades (VSBs) on which you can choose to place a Cisco VSG, VSM, or Network Analysis Module
(NAM).

Prerequisites for Installing Cisco VSG on Cisco Cloud Services
Platform
• You must first install the Cisco Cloud Services Platform Virtual Services Appliance and connect it to
the network. For procedures on installing the hardware, see the Cisco Cloud Services Platform Virtual
Services Appliance Hardware Installation Guide.
• After you install the hardware appliance and connect it to the network, you can configure the Cisco
Cloud Services Platform management software, migrate existing VSMs residing on a VM to the Cisco
Cloud Services Platform as virtual service blades (VSBs), and create and configure new VSBs that might
host the Cisco VSG. For procedures on configuring the software, see the Cisco Cloud Services Platform
Software Configuration Guide.
Guidelines and Limitations
• The Cisco Cloud Services Platform appliance and its hosted Cisco VSG VSBs must share the same
management VLAN.
• Unlike the data and high availability (HA) VLANs that are set when a Cisco VSG VSB is created, a
Cisco VSG VSB inherits its management VLAN from the Cisco Cloud Services Platform.

Installing a Cisco VSG on a Cisco Cloud Services Platform
Caution
Do not change the management VLAN on a VSB. Because the management VLAN is
inherited from the Cisco Cloud Services Platform, any changes to the management
VLAN are applied to both the Cisco Cloud Services Platform and all of its hosted VSBs.
Installing a Cisco VSG on a Cisco Cloud Services Platform
You can install the Cisco VSG on a Cisco Nexus 1000V as a virtual service blade (VSB).
Before You Begin
• Log in to the CLI in EXEC mode.
• Know the name of the Cisco VSG VSB that you want to create.
• Whether you are using a new ISO file from the bootflash repository folder or from an existing VSB, do
one of the following:
– If you are using a new ISO file in the bootflash repository, you know the filename.
Cisco VSG: nexus-1000v.VSG2.1.2a.iso
– If you are using an ISO file from an existing VSB, you must know the name of the VSB type. This
procedure includes information about identifying this name.
• Know the following properties for the Cisco VSG VSB:
– HA ID –Management IP address
– Cisco VSG name
– Management subnet mask length
– Default gateway IPV4 address
– Administrator password
– Data and HA VLAN IDs
• This procedure shows you how to identify and assign data and HA VLANs for the Cisco VSG VSB.
Do not assign a management VLAN because the management VLAN is inherited from the Cisco Nexus
1000V.

2. (config)# virtual-service-blade name
3. (config-vsb-config)# show virtual-service-blade-type summary
4. (config-vsb-config)# virtual-service-blade-type [name name | new iso file name]
5. (config-vsb-config)# description description
6. (config-vsb-config)# show virtual-service-blade name name
7. (config-vsb-config)# interface name vlan vlanid
8. Repeat Step 7 to apply additional interfaces
9. (config-vsb-config)# enable [primary | secondary]
10. (config-vsb-config)# show virtual-service-blade name name
11. (Optional) (config-vsb-config)# copy running-config startup-config
DETAILED STEPS
Command or Action
Purpose
Step 1
switch# configure terminal
Enters global configuration mode.
Step 2
(config)# virtual-service-blade name Creates the named VSB and places you into configuration mode for that service.
The name can be an alphanumeric string of up to 80 characters.
Step 3
(config-vsb-config)# show
(Optional) Displays a summary of all VSB configurations by type name, such
virtual-service-blade-type summary as Cisco VSG, VSM, or NAM. You use this type name (in this case, the name
for the Cisco VSG) in the next step.
Step 4
(config-vsb-config)#
virtual-service-blade-type [name
name | new iso file name]
Specifies the type and name of the software image file to add to this Cisco VSG
VSB:
• Use the new keyword to specify the name of the new Cisco VSG ISO
software image file in the bootflash repository folder.
• Use the name keyword to specify the name of the existing Cisco VSG
VSB type. Enter the name of an existing type found in the command output.
Step 5
(config-vsb-config)# description
description
(Optional) Adds a description to the Cisco VSG VSB.
Step 6
(config-vsb-config)# show
virtual-service-blade name name
Displays the Cisco VSG VSB that you have just created including the interface
names that you configure in the next step.
Step 7
(config-vsb-config)# interface name Applies the interface and VLAN ID to this Cisco VSG. Use the interface names
from the command output.
vlan vlanid
The description is an alphanumeric string of up to 80 characters.
Note
If you try to apply an interface that is not present, the following error
is displayed:
ERROR: Interface name not found in the associated
virtual-service-blade type.

Installing a Cisco VSG on a Cisco Cloud Services Platform
Command or Action
Purpose
Caution
Caution
Do not assign a management VLAN. Unlike data and HA VLANs,
the management VLAN is inherited from the Cisco Nexus 1000V.
To prevent loss of connectivity, you must configure the same data
and HA VLANs on the hosted Cisco VSGs.
Step 8
Repeat Step 7 to apply additional
interfaces
Step 9
(config-vsb-config)# enable [primary Initiates the configuration of the VSB and then enables it.
| secondary]
If you enter the enable command without the optional primary or secondary
keywords, it enables both.
If you are deploying a redundant pair, you do not need to specify primary or
secondary.
If you are enabling a nonredundant VSB, you can specify its HA role as follows:
• Use the primary keyword to designate the VSB in a primary role.
• Use the secondary keyword to designate the VSB in a secondary role
The Cisco Nexus 1000V prompts you for the following:
• HA ID
• Management IP address
• Management subnet mask length
• Default gateway IPV4 address
• Cisco VSG name
• Administrator password
Step 10
Step 11
(config-vsb-config)# show
virtual-service-blade name name
(Optional) Displays the new VSB for verification.
(config-vsb-config)# copy
running-config startup-config
(Optional)
Saves the running configuration persistently through reboots and restarts by
copying it to the startup configuration.
While the Cisco Nexus 1000V management software is configuring the Cisco
VSG, the output for this command progresses from in progress to powered on.
This example shows how to configure a Cisco Nexus 1000V appliance VSB as a Cisco VSG:
N1110# configure
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
N1110(config)# virtual-service-blade vsg1
N1110(config-vsb-config)# virtual-service-blade-type new nexus-1000v.5.2.1.VSG2.1.2a.iso
N1110(config-vsb-config)# interface data vlan 72
N1110(config-vsb-config)# interface ha vlan 72
N1110(config-vsb-config)# enable
Enter vsb image: [nexus-1000v.5.2.1.VSG2.1.2a.iso]
Enter HA id[1-4095]: 1233
Management IP version [V4/V6]: [V4]
