Nexus FEX / PVLAN Promiscuous Ports?

Hey guys,

Have two 2k FEX modules hanging off of two 5k Nexus switches  running v6 NX-OS

I couldnt create PVLAN promiscious ports on the FEX - only HOST ports....

Is this the case?

Re: Nexus FEX / PVLAN Promiscuous Ports?

Hi,

The FEX interface does not support configurations that include promiscuous ports. Also, the FEX interface does not support connections to devices that have promiscuous ports. When promiscuous functionally is required, the device, such as a Nexus 1000V, must connect to the base ports of the Cisco NX-OS 5000 Series switch.

Link to the config guide:
