Re: Straight-through FEXs v/s Dual-homed FEXs

Hi @gavinhans 

ST: easy and simple to configure, use and troubleshoot, but will loose connectivity if the parent switch goes down. Workaround: vPC on HIF ports.

DH: high redundancy, but slightly more complex, and you need to make sure config is identical on both vpc peers. Limited supportability from parent Nexus family perspective (meaning not all platforms supports dual homed).

 

Stay safe,

Sergiu
