Hierarchy Level


Define and apply the named VSI policy to the edge virtual bridging (EVB) configuration. For use with edge virtual bridging, each virtual machine (VM) on the server is uniquely identified by following four parameters, which are contained in a VSI policy:

  • vsi-manager-id

  • vsi-type

  • vsi-version

  • vsi-instance-id

The vsi-policy command manually configures these four parameters on the EX switch for the successful association of VM-VSI. VDP protocol helps determine the parameters defined for the virtual machines on the server and configure them on the switch. Use policy options to define the VM-VSI parameters. Configure a firewall filter for each of the VM profiles and use it in this statement.
