Spine & Leaf is must for N9K w/ ACI Mode?

Hi,

I am new to ACI and would like to study more. When deploying ACI with APIC controller, does it mean all N9K must run in Leaf/Spine L2 loop-free standard and we need to give up Virtual Port-Channel?

Thanks

Leon

Hi, Tks

 

Can we skip Leaf-and-Spine but just VPC, STP in the ACI domain? Is Leaf-And-Spine the bread-and-butter for ACI?

Leon,In addition to what Mike

Leon,

In addition to what Mike has already explained, I would suggest reviewing some of the video content is available to you to review.  Not knowing where you are in your understanding of ACI, I have included some basic overview video links that you can review. I would suggest reviewing these and then formulate some questions and then we may be able to help you.  Also, You always have an option to reach out to your local Account Team and they may also be able to answer some of your questions.
