Nexus FEX ports

Hey guys,

Curious on those who have deployed the Nexus 2k FEX

This is my layout

two nexus 5k in vPC mode

two Nexus 2k FEX dual homed to each on FEX101 and FEX102

sh int status identifies the two FEX modules as 101 and 102 which is good - FEX modules are connected and upgraded to the parent version

Question:

HOW DO I CONFIGURE ONE OF THOSE PORTS?!

You cant just put them in to a simple VLAN without changing its role - am i right?

I would like to be able to configure stand alone ports as opposed to creating vPC ports.

Any thoughts or guidance will be greatly appreciated.

You configure these just like you would any other interface. For example

conf t

int e101/1/1

switchport mode access

If youre Nexus 2K are connected to both 5ks, you will need to mirror the configuration to both 5ks. Anything configuration in a VPC (your fex to N5K) need to match 100%

Hey Colby,

Thanks mate.

I tried that, but it came up with the port status of (inactive) and the port would not come up

The two parent 5k Nexus switches are in vPC mode if that helps?
