Does F2/F3 module of nexus 7000 can configure as a routed interface ?

Hi All,

 

I read the datasheet before, the F2 module can support layer 3 interface.

 

Is the layer 3 interface means SVI interface or routed interface or both?

 

This is my environment, I want to use nexus 7000 as a multicast router, So every interfaces on nexus 7K shoud be run as a router interface.

 

Which line card should i choose if i just want to accomplish this function? M OR F ?

 

Thanks...

F2 line cards can support Layer 3 if you have a Layer 3 license enabled and if you DO NOT HAVE any M1/M2 line cards.  The very minute you stick an M1/M2 line card in, the F2 card will "downgrade" to a Layer 2 line card and will hand over Layer 3 capabilities/functions to the M1/M2 line card.

 

Layer 3 interface = Routed ports

Layer 2 interface = SVI

Thanks Leo, From your point,

Thanks Leo,

 

From your point, i think the F2 card can support layer3 interface.

 

So after I enable multicast feature with F2 card,  I can run nexus 7K as a multicast router that every interfaces run as a routed interfaces?
