I am new to the Nexus range and have a couple of questions to ask.
1) If a NX2k is dual-homed to a pair of NX5Ks, which are joined by a vPC, which NX5K is the 'parent', and can you specify this?
2) When connecting servers to the NX2Ks, what is the best strategy? I have seen some Cisco diagrams which have servers using teamed NICs to connect to a pair of NX2Ks, which in turn each connect to a single NX5K. Both of the NX5Ks are connected by a vPC, and the teamed NIC to NX2K connections is a vPC too
Also I have seen diagrams, which are similar to the layout in question one: NX2K dual-homed to a pair of NX5Ks. In this case the servers only connect to a single NX2K.
So I guess I am asking can you have the following scenario:
1 server with teamed NICs connecting to two NX2Ks. Each of the NX2Ks is connected to the same pair of NX5Ks. vPC is then used between the NX5Ks, between the NX5Ks and the NX2Ks, and also between the NX2Ks and the server?
