Integrating F2-Series Modules Into a Cisco Nexus 7000 Series System
The Cisco Nexus 7000 48-port 1/10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ I/O module (F2-Series) module is a low-latency, high-performance, high-density module that offers most Layer 2 and Layer 3 functions of Cisco NX-OS software. When integrating the F2-Series module into a Cisco Nexus 7000 Series system, observe the following guidelines:
•An F2-Series module requires its own F2-Series module VDC. This VDC is restricted to the F2-Series module; M1 and F1 ports cannot be in the F2-Series module VDC. The default VDC can also be configured as an F2-Series module VDC.
•If you boot up an unconfigured Cisco Nexus 7000 Series switch that contains only F2-Series modules, then the default VDC is automatically configured as an F2-Series module VDC.
•Some software features are not available on the F2-Series module in Cisco NX-OS Release 6.0(1). These include ACL Capture, ERSPAN, FCoE, GRE tunnels, LISP, MACSEC, MPLS, Netflow, online diagnostics, OTV, PIM-Bidir, and certain counters. Many of these features will be supported in future software releases; however, the F2-Series hardware does not support LISP, MPLS, and OTV, so these features will remain unavailable on the F2-Series module.

Is it supported or NOT supported? It's a frequently asked question.
Before APIC, release 2.3(1f), transit routing was not supported within a
single L3Out profile. In APIC, release 2.3(1f) and later, you can
configure transit routing with a single L3Out pr...
