We are planning to implement FEX with Nexus 2K as TOR. Due to limited budget, only 1 TOR on each rack is possible.
I would like to know if this implementation is possible with single nexus 2K dual-homed to Nexus 6K as parent switches
I am attaching two possible design here in regard to connection from server to FEX:
Will these design going to work? Please advise
Solved! Go to Solution.
The most popular deployment is single-home the FEX to a single parent switch, however, there are multiple links from the FEX to the parent switch.
Not a lot of people have dual-homed FEX.
Thanks for your response. The concern is redundancy on 6K side, so if one Nexus 6K goes down.The other will handle the traffic. I realize this design will have single point of failure on Nexus 2K side
What do you think about this design, is it going to works? Please suggest
You single-home FEX to their parent switch. The parent switches are link together using vPC. The server is dual-homed to two FEX.
If one FEX fails, then the servers second link will be able to divert traffic.
