We will be deploying a new Cisco Nexus 5K environment with 2248 FEX's.
The firewall in the environment (non-Cisco), only supports static Port-channels - i.e "ON" configuration and not LACP.
For redundancy we will be patching it into the environment in a topology where VLAN's are trunked and connected to two FEX modules as on page 2 of this document:
Every example I've seen online uses LACP instead of a static Port-channel. My questions are:
Will this cause any issues in the event of port failure?
Is this best practice?
Are there any "gotchas" or caveats with this design?
Many thanks in advance.
