    I'm trying to configure a Nexus 6000 for collecting and sending NetFlow data to my NFA Server.

    I can enable  the feature and can define exporter, monitor and record.

    But I'm not able to configure an interface. The command "ip flow ..." is not available.

    Any idea?

    I've got an answer from Cisco.

    The command "ip flow ..." is only available on Interfaces, which are not configured as switchport.

     

    I've started testing it with a configuration like:

         flow timeout 60
         flow exporter FlowExp_NetQosServer
                description Net Flow Export to NetQosServer
                destination 1.2.3.4 use-vrf xxxx
                transport udp 9995
                source loopback3
                version 9
                template data timeout 300
                option exporter-stats timeout 60
         sampler FlowSampler1
                description NetFlow TestSampler 1
                mode 1 out-of 1
          flow monitor FlowMoni_NetQosServer
                record netflow-original
                exporter FlowExp_NetQosServer

         ...
         interface Vlan1234
               ...
                 ip flow monitor FlowMoni_NetQosServer input sampler FlowSampler1
              ...

    It seems this works.
