Is fabricpath supported on Nexus 9000?

I would like to know if fabricpath is supported on all models of Nexus 9000?

Hi , Yes it supported in 9000

Hi ,

This type of topology can also be transitioned to the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series, but without the use of Cisco FabricPath in the end state.

A spine-and-leaf topology would need to be planned into the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series design. A spine node is a node that connects to other switches in the fabric, and a leaf node is a node that connects to servers (Figure 2). The current Cisco Nexus portfolio remains the same, focusing on the Cisco Nexus 7000, 6000, and 5000 Series chassis

FP is not supported in all

FP is not supported in all models of Nexus 9000. Nexus 9500 & 9300 does support Leaf-Spine architecture using L3 features. Refer link below...

Hi

Hi

I noticed that the last update to this post was 2 years ago.

Please could somebody let me know if FabricPath is supported on Nexus 9504 and Nexus 9372.

I would really appreciate any information to back up your response such as a URL link.

I did some searching but could not find a clear answer on what specific Nexus 9000 switch models support FabricPath

Thanks

Fabricpath is not supported

Fabricpath is not supported on the Nexus 9000 series switches.

You should look into VXLAN based designs which can give something very comparable to what fabricpath can achieve on the 9K platform

This document says you CAN do

This document says you CAN do spine and leaf deployments in NX-OS mode.  Does this necessarily mean fabricpath?

"For leaf-and-spine deployments in NX-OS mode, you can use the Cisco Nexus 9500, 9300, or 9200 platform in the spine or leaf role."
