Cisco VM-FEX Parent Switch & Nexus 1K

Hi,

I'm designing a Cisco UCS Blade server enviroment and want to use Cisco VM-FEX. I also have Cisco Nexus 5548UP and Nexus 7009 & 7004 datacenter switches. I need advice on the following:

  1. What is the Parent switch for Cisco VM-FEX? Is it:
    • Cisco 6200 Fabric Interconnect?
    • Cisco Nexus 5548UP switch with VM-FEX licences
  2. Also, can a Cisco Nexus 7000 switch be the parent switch for Cisco VM-FEX? If yes, what licensing is needed for the Nexus 7000 switch?
  3. When using VM-FEX in both Emulated and Pass-through modes, do I need to use Cisco Nexus 1000v switch in the Blade hosts?

Thank you.

Michael.

Cisco VM-FEX Parent Switch & Nexus 1K

Also,

  1. Can I use VMware DVS switch with VM-FEX or it has to be the Cisco Nexus 1000v?
  2. Does the VM-FEX feature work for FCoE traffic or its only Ethernet switching?

Thank you.

Michael.
