cascading nexus 5k switch

Hi,

Is it possible to cascade(trunk) two cisco nexus 5548 switches together.

We do not want to do the vpc links for now due to time constraints. We are looking at doing a simple trunk between two 5548's to get more connections.

Appreciate all help. Thanks in advance

Yes this is possible. Simply create the VLANs on both switches, configure the link(s) between the two as trunks and away you go.

If you'll be using more than one link between the two it would be best to create a port-channel and have the two links as members of that port-channel, otherwise spanning-tree will block one of the links.

Regards
