I noticed that there are two Fabric Interconnect ports in the front panel of the nexus 5500, what is the purpose of these doors?
Are you referring to the 2 RJ45 ports in the back of the switch?
If yes, theses are cross connect ports
see figure 1-2 in this link:
yes. Those ports serve to interconnect with fabric Interconnects for management?
I think, these ports make the switches act as one (cluster them).
This option should only be available in a future release of the nx-os?
