FEX Active Active on N7k with 6.1 code?

Is FEX Active Active topology supported on Nexus Nexus 7k running 6.1 code? As per Datasheet (http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/iosswrel/ps9494/ps9372/data_sheet_c78-437306.html), 6.1 added support for Fabric Extender with vPC+. Would like to know if this specific to FabricPath topologies.

TIA

Active-Active FEX (or vPC FEX) is not supported in any N7K NX-OS release with vPC.

The only A-A FEX set up that is supported in N7K is with FP running vPC+.

Just to clarify in 6.1.2 host vPC+ : server attached to 2 FEX using port-channel is supported. Each FEX single attached to 1 parent Nexus 7000

Thanks Matt for the input. Does that mean that though FEX vPC+ is supported in 6.1.1, FEX vPC+ and Host vPC+ (Enhanced vPC+?) cannot coexist as of now?

Also can you confirm on below

1) FEX vPC+ and Host vPC+ can coexist with parent Nexus 55xx's in vPC+

2) Host vPC+ (alone) is supported between two straigth through FEXes with parent N7ks in vPC+

Starting with 6.1.2 the configuration you described in 2) is supported with F2 Linecards. As of today dual-homed FEXes are not supported on N7K at all.

Scenarion 1) is supported on N55xx

Hope that helps,

Matt
