UCS Virtual Interface Card 1280 failover

Hi,

  I'm facing some issues with failover and Cisco UCS Virtual Interface Card 1280.

I found some information regarding M81KR:

Cisco UCS M81KR has fabric failover

The Cisco UCS M81KR offers fabric failover, which enables interface failover at a physical level without involving the OS or hypervisor or certification overhead.

b)  Both uplinks of one FI fail or FI fails : In this case the corresponding server links will be shut since there is no uplink available on an FI. The FI will propagate link-down status to the adapter. Once adapter link-down status occurs, it is the responsibility of the operating system to re-pin traffic to the remaining NIC/HBA. The exception here is with Palo adapter (M71KR and M81KR) which supports fabric failover.

But I didn't found about Cisco UCS Virtual Interface Card 1280.

Cisco UCS Virtual Interface Card 1280 is newer than M81KR, anybody knows if 1280 has the same feature? is it possible the failover even if the Fabric Interconnect fails?

Thanks,

UCS Virtual Interface Card 1280 failover

Hi Mauricio,

The VIC 1280 has fabric failover as well, from the spec sheet:

Network architecture

Provides a redundant path to the fabric interconnect using hardware-based fabric failover
