Nexus 7004 with N2K-B22HP-P FEX won't connect

Hi Martin,

At this point in time the N2K-B22-HP FEX is not supported with the Nexus 7000 series switches as the parent switch. If you look at Table 2 in the Cisco Nexus B22 Blade Fabric Extender Data Sheet you'll see it only lists the following:

Cisco Nexus parent switch model or line card

  • Cisco Nexus 5010 or 5020 Switch for Cisco Nexus B22HP and B22F
  • Cisco Nexus 5548P Switch
  • Cisco Nexus 5548UP Switch
  • Cisco Nexus 5596UP Switch
  • Cisco Nexus 6001 Switch
  • Cisco Nexus 6004 Switch

Regards
