Virtual Connect FlexFabric with CISCO Nexus

Hi!

 

Does anybody have any experience to share about using FlexFabric with Nexus switches for SAN?  Is this supported?

 

This is how it would look like:

Any opinions are appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Re: Virtual Connect FlexFabric with CISCO Nexus

the short answer is that don't use Virtual connect to connect with Nexus5000/5500 for native FC connection. Nexus 8G implemenation is different than their MDS line. Nexus has not been certified as FC connection for VC.

 

FF is compatible with general MDS and Brocade switches. for the list of certified FC switch on VC-FC or FF, please check SPOCK database.
