Nexus 7K - adding .1 Gateway address for a new VLAN

Nexus 7K - adding .1 Gateway address for a new VLAN

(OP)
Good morning,
I had to create 2 new VLANS on our Nexus 7K, Vlan 151(voice) and Vlan 152(data), for our newly built warehouse. How do I configure the Nexus 7K to be the gateway for both of these new vlans?

Thank you

Thanks,

RE: Nexus 7K - adding .1 Gateway address for a new VLAN

You should be feeding the VLANs back to your distribution layer for routing.

Alternatively, if you want to misuse the Nexus switches in this way, you do:
conf t
feature interface-vlan
interface vlan 151
ip address 10.10.151.0 255.255.255.0

vince it's not a misuse to have some layer 3 on a nexus... if they have a collapsed core topology or maybe these are Transit network vlans?

We must go always forward, not backward
always up, not down and always twirling twirling towards infinity.

I understand keeping the distribution layer off of the Nexus. We have a collapsed core. However, in 3 months, we will be taking ALL direct connections off of the Nexus and adding it to a 3750 for distribution. Until then, I need to add these new vlans into our network to handle the new addition. I am not proficient on layer 3 of the Nexus. Is Vince's code correct? Thank you in advance.

Do you have the correct cards for the Nexus to do Layer 3 ? If so then it is no different than othter cisco L3 switches just create a L3 SVI and put the address on it . Assign ports into that vlan.
