I am designing a new DC. In server zone of DC, I want to build a topology with Nexus 5k and Nexus 2K.
Nexus 5K will be the VPC cores wheres as 2K will form VPC with 5K. 5K in turn are connected with firewall.
All servers are connected to 2K in active-standby fashion as servers are yet to be upgraded.
Servers are in 3 different VLANs 10,20 & 30 with IP address 10.10.10.0/24, 10.10.20.0/24 and 10.10.30.0/24 respectively.
Gateway for servers in VLAN 10 & 20 will be Nexus 5K whereas gateway for servers in VLAN 30 would be firewall.
No VPC between firewall and Nexus 5k nor between 2K and servers.
VLAN 30 servers traffic needs to cross the firewall to speak with other DC segments whereas VLAN 10 & 20 servers do not need to cross the firewall. VLAN 10 & 20 servers direclty speak with other segments through 5K only.
Will this topology work for VLAN 30 servers with VPC between 5K and 2k and their default gateway as firewall.

interface we use the VLAN tag to demultiplex the VLANs. The switch needs
to determine which MAC Address table to look in for a forwarding
decision. To do this we require the switch to do...
