Nexus 7k + Nexus 9k fabric ethernet

Hi all,

Could you help me with an issue?

 

I would like know if the Nexus 9300-EX can become a element of the fabric ethernet architecture?

 

I will deploy a data center network with Nexus 7k at the core layer and Nexus 9300-EX (UTP and Fiber) at top of rack. But I have the requirement of fabric. I am looking for FabricPath but I didn't find anything about FabricPath on the Nexus 9300-EX switches documentation. Only at Nexus 7K and not else more talk of Nexux 7K plus Nexus 9300-EX topology.

 

Please, if anybody can help me I will be very grateful and glad!

 

Regards,

 

Allyson

Allyson,

 

Unfortunately, the Nexus 9000 series does not support Fabricpath and there is no roadmap to add this in. The Nexus 9000s are frequently deployed in a Spine/Leaf layer fashion using VXLAN BGP EVPN instead.

 

Hope that helps.
