Nexus 5548 to UCS-C series network connectivity.

Hi There,

I am new to nexus world, mainly telecom side. I have a situation where a vendor like to deploy two Cisco UCS-C series servers for voice deployment.

Each UCS C240 M3 server has 4 NICs, 2 nics bonded 802.1q will connect to primary nexus 5k switch and other two bonded will connect to secondary nexus switch. we have a vPC domain and no FEXes so we have to connect these two servers directly to Nexus 5ks.

My question is it possible with teamed nics to coonect to 2 different nexus switches?

Can anyone guide me how can I achieve this design? see attached.

 

Thanks Much

It will also depend on the

It will also depend on the Server network settings such as OS, software switch flavor and NIC teaming option on the server.

x- if you run ESXi, then you may check out the following KB article.

x- if you use N1Kv, then you can use LACP or static port-channeling, but be sure to make it consistent on the upstream switches.

 

hope it helps.
