Absolutely, VM-FEX will work with any N5K switches. You can take benefit

of fabric path as well on the 5500 series to configure your fabric, and

use evpc+ downstream if you have a pair of n5ks and would like to have

an active / active vpc environment to the vm-fex.

One more question.

According to your first post, VM FEX is supported by all N5K switches.

But following cisco document states that it is supported only by N5500.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/datacenter/nexus5000/sw/layer2/513_n1_1/b_Cisco_n5k_layer2_config_gd_rel_513_N1_1_chapter_010101.html

---------------------------------------------------

Switch

VM-FEX is supported by the Cisco Nexus 5500 Platform running Cisco NX-OS Release 5.1(3)N1(1) or later.

---------------------------------------------------

So, which one is correct?

Re: VM Fex on Fabric Path

The platform that supports VM-FEX is the 5500 you're absolutely right and the documentation is correct. I should have been more specific initially.
