Finally: a Virtual Switch Supports BPDU Guard
Nexus 1000V release 5.2(1)SV3(1.1) was published on August 22nd (I’m positive that has nothing to do with VMworld starting tomorrow) and I found this gem in the release notes:
Enabling BPDU guard causes the Cisco Nexus 1000V to detect these spurious BPDUs and shut down the virtual machine adapters (the origination BPDUs), thereby avoiding loops.
It took them almost three years, but we finally have BPDU guard on a layer-2 virtual switch (why does it matter). Nice!
