hi, Cisco Experts:

I am not a network expert, so I need advices:

Example:

Customer has X 2 N5596, X 2 N2224TP and X 2 CAT6509E & others like UCS 5108 Chassis, etc.

Q1.

Customer has X 2 10G Ethernet Uplinks from N5596-A to CAT6509E-A.

Customer has X 2 10G Ethernet Uplinks from N5596-B to CAT6509E-B.

CAT6509E is in Independence Mode (NO VSS)

N5596UP is in vPC Mode

Customer wants to do Ethernt Uplink Functional Test so they told me they wanted to PLUG OUT both of the X 2 Ethernet Uplinks from N5596-A or N5596-B. What will be the outcome with regard to the following?

CAT6509E is their L3 whereby customer clients can access the application hosted in Bare-Metal UCS Blades? They will issue ping test from their notebooks to one of the L3 IP.

Will the ping break?

Q2.

Will the following connection make a difference at all?

Customer has X 1 10G Ethernet Uplinks from N5596-A to CAT6509E-A, follows by another

X 1 10G Ethernet Uplinks from N5596-A to CAT6509E-B,

Customer has X 1 10G Ethernet Uplinks from N5596-B to CAT6509E-B, follows by another

X 1 10G Ethernet Uplinks from N5596-B to CAT6509E-A,

CAT6509E is in Independence Mode (NO VSS)

N5596UP is in vPC Mode

Q3.

What is Cisco's recommended Best Practices ASSUMING customer is NOT RUNNING VSS in their X 2 CAT6509E in terms of Physical Connectivity & Redundancy in this case?

Thank a lot.

SiM
