Hi,

I noticed that there are two Fabric Interconnect ports in the front panel of the nexus 5500, what is the purpose of these doors?

Best regards

Fred

Hi,

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:

Hi Reza,

yes. Those ports serve to interconnect with fabric Interconnects for management?

Thanks

Best regards

Hi,

I think, these ports make the switches act as one (cluster them).

Thanks Reza.

This option should only be available in a future release of the nx-os?

Best regards

Fred
