  • Cisco Nexus 1000V Switch for VMware vSphere

Known Affected Releases

4.0(4)SV1(2)

Description (partial)

Symptom:
The Nexus1000 previously has VEM connected to it, and thus has the vem configuration like the following in both the running-config and startup-config:
vem 3
  host vmware id 80954934-d21d-b211-8000-00237de092a2

After executing 'write erase', 'sh startup-config' indicates that the startup-config has been erased:
n1kv# write erase
Warning: This command will erase the startup-configuration.
Do you wish to proceed anyway? (y/n)  [n] y
n1kv#
n1kv# sh startup-config
No startup configuration

The N1k is rebooted after the startup-config is erased; the VSM will go through the initial system admin account setup after the reboot and allow user to login.

After login on to the system, 'show running-config' and 'show startup-config' both show that the vem configuration that was supposed to have been erased was in fact not erase.

'write erase' erases all configuration except those vem related config; the command should erase all config, including the vem config.

Conditions:
'write erase' with vem config.
