Using the Cisco Nexus 1000v Switch with Ops Manager

Refer to the procedure in this topic to use Ops Manager with the Cisco Nexus 1000v Switch. First, configure Ops Manager through Step 4 in Configuring BOSH Director on vSphere. Then configure your network according to the following steps.

  1. From your Pivotal Platform Ops Manager Installation Dashboard, click the BOSH Director tile.

  2. Select Create Networks.

  3. Click the network name to configure the network settings. This is default if you have not changed the name. Nexus switch config default

  4. Find the folder name and port group name for the switch, as you configured them in vCenter. For the example vSphere environment pictured below, a user might want to use the switch configured on the beer-apple port group, which is in the drinks dc folder.

    Note: Folder names can be strings of multiple words separated by spaces, or strings of words separated by other punctuation, including dashes.
