Replace Nexus 5596 by Nexus 9300

Hello!

I want to replace two Nexus 5596 by new 9300.

I have HP B22 blade switches.

Can this blade switches work with Nexus-93180yc-fx?

May be You recommended other model?

We use simple installation: L3 routing (EIGRP) and port-channels (vpc).

We do not used FC and FCoE.

Thank You!

Hi @Oleg Volkov ,

Unfortunately, the B22HP is a FEX, and it only supports N5K, N6K, N7K families as parent.

Depending on your sizing and budget plans, it may be better to replace your B22 with Virtual Connect modules, and then leverage new N9K switches.

Hmm.

But this document say - same 9000 support FEX:

Ha! Interesting.

I found that B22 Datasheet stating only N5K, 6K, 7K support:

https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/switches/nexus-b22-blade-fabric-extender/data_sheet_c78-685265.html

But it may not have been updated since N9K releases.

Sorry for that!

You shouldn't have a problem. It's good that you checked that compatibility matrix because that is kept up to date.

 

The features you use on the 5K today will translate over well for the N9K.

 

Good luck with your upgrade!
