ACI vPC using EX and FX

Hi,

In ACI, can we run vPC using two different model - e.g, N9K-C93108TC-EX and N9K-C93108TC-FX.

I saw in documentation that this is not possible in NXOS, not sure about ACI.

 

Thanks !

You can't mix Gen1(-E) & Gen2+(-EX, -FX*) switches in a VPC pair.  Officially, we support EX & FX in the same VPC pair, but personally I would caution against this and try at all times to keep VPC members as the same Generation (EX & EX, FX & FX) - primarily due to certain features requiring particular generation of switch (Ex. MacSec, Telemetry etc).  

This is documented here: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/datacenter/aci/apic/sw/4-x/L2-configuration/Cisco-APIC-Layer2-Configuration-Guide-42x/Cisco-APIC-Layer2-Configuration-Guide-421_chapter_0111.htmlhttps://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/datacenter/...
