FEX on 5ks bootup process

We're moving DCs. My question is, can I power on my 5ks and 2ks FEXs simultaneously or should I power on the 5Ks first and then power on the FEXs?

Re: FEX on 5ks bootup process

If this is green Field deployment, you need to Power on 5K and deploy the configuration for vPC, and then FEX configuration.

 

Then connect the FEX links to FEX device and power the FEX devices, so it will bootup with the image and provision correction.

 

configuration reference guide :

Re: FEX on 5ks bootup process

Assuming that you are moving an existing environment to a different location, it does not matter if you power them together or power the 2k later. The devices will come online after they fully power up and connected.

However, if you are replacing any of the parents switch things may change drastically.

If it is a greenfield deployment as mentioned by Balaji, I totally agree with his suggestion.

 

I hope it answered your question.

 

Thanks
