Nexus 5K Features

From my understanding the Cisco Nexus 5K series is not L3 capable. Does this mean that you cannot create L3 SVIs on it? You can create VLANs on the devices, but not VLAN interfaces. Is this assumption correct? If so, is the only method to manage them via the management ports connected to another network?

Correct.

I think you just won the trifecta. :-)

Don,
I was reviewing some docs today and noticed that the Nexus supports VLAN interfaces by enabling the vlan-interface feature. Do you know if this is accurate?

The 5k does have L3 capabilities if you are talking about the 5548/5596 models.  They have modules/cards that can be installed to give them L3 capabilities.  The 5010 and 5020 do not have L3 capabilities.
