Changes to a virtual system, such as a set of virtual machines in a data center, may be automatically synchronized with the corresponding physical system. In one implementation, an application may receive information regarding changes made to a virtual system. The application may determine whether the information regarding the changes necessitates a change in the configuration of one or more physical switches, and may reconfigure affected ones of the physical switches for compatibility with the changes made to the virtual system.
