TRILL in Nexus 9K

Hi, Guys

 

My question is whether the Nexus 9300 series switches model supports TRILL. I am participating in a deployment of a DC with Spiter Leaf architecture, where HP will work as leaf and the spine will be a Nexus N9k-c93180yc-fx. I'm not sure if the HP switch supports VXLAN but if I do not support it I will have to use TRILL.

 

What would be a good practices or a solution to this design to work?

 

I thank you in advance if you can help me.

Re: TRILL in Nexus 9K

Hello,

I am sorry to disappoint you but Nexus 9000 series do not support TRILL (or FabricPath), and there are no plans to support them to my best knowledge. These technologies have been superseded by VXLAN over routed underlay... we could debate the technical pros and cons but in the end, VXLAN is where the world seems to be moving to.

Best regards,
Peter

Nexus 9K devices supports VXLAN instead of TRILL or fabric path.
