Configure Fabric Path and test its function as per given task below.

Topology:

Refer the below topology to configure FabricPath

TASK:

Task 1:

  • Configure the fabric path on all switches with switch ID N7K1: 71, N7K2: 72, N5K1:51, N5K2:52 and enable fabric path on all inter connecting switch.
  • Configure N7K1 as root for Multidestination tree 1 and N7K2 as root for Multidestination tree 2
  • Configure link from N5K1 to Host 1 as access Port in vlan 100
  • Configure link from N5K2 to Host 2 as access Port in vlan 100
  • Host 1 has IP address of 100.100.100.11/24. Default gateway: 100.100.100.254.
  • Host 2 has IP address of 100.100.100.12/24. Default gateway: 100.100.100.254

TASK 2: 

Check Fabric Path failure scenario with Fabric Path core ports between N5K-1 and N7K-1 down

Solution:

TASK 1:

  • Configure the fabric path on all switches with switch ID N7K1: 71, N7K2: 72, N5K1:51, N5K2:52
  • Configure N7K1 as root for Multidestination tree 1 and N7K2 as root for Multidestination tree 2
  • Configure link from N5K1 to Host 1 as access Port in vlan 100
  • Configure link from N5K2 to Host 2 as access Port in vlan 100
  • Host 1 has IP address of 100.100.100.11/24. Default gateway: 100.100.100.254.
  • Host 2 has IP address of 100.100.100.12/24. Default gateway: 100.100.100.254

Enable Fabric Path feature on all switches:

N7K1(config)# install feature-set fabricpath
N7K1(config) # feature-set fabricpath
N7K2(config)# install feature-set fabricpath
N7K2(config) # feature-set fabricpath
N5K1(config) # install feature-set fabricpath
N5K1(config) # feature-set fabricpath
N5K2(config) # installs feature-set fabricpath
N5K2(config) # feature-set fabricpath

Configure VLAN 100 on all switches with Mode Fabric Path

N7K1(config)# vlan 100
N7K1(config-vlan)# mode fabricpath
N7K2(config)# vlan 100
N7K2(config-vlan)# mode fabricpath
N5K1(config)# vlan 100
N5K1(config-vlan)# mode fabricpath
N5K2(config)# vlan 100
N5K2(config-vlan)# mode fabricpath

Enable Fabric Path on all interconnecting switch interface:

N7K1(config)# int eth2/1-4
N7K1(config-if-range)# switchport
N7K1(config-if-range)# switchport mode fabricpath
N7K1(config-if-range)# no shut
N5K1(config)# int eth2/1-4
N5K1(config-if-range)# switchport
N5K1(config-if-range)# switchport mode fabricpath
N5K1(config-if-range)# no shut
N7K2(config)# int eth2/1-4
N7K2(config-if-range)# switchport
N7K2(config-if-range)# switchport mode fabricpath
N5K2(config)# int eth2/1-4
N5K2(config-if-range)# switchport
N5K2(config-if-range)# switchport mode fabricpath
N5K2(config-if-range)# no shut
