Cabling Compute Servers to the Nexus 93180 Switches (Step 2)

Note
This step can be completed after the Controller Bundle hardware has been set up.

All compute servers should be dual-connected to the Nexus 93180 switches. Each connection should use the compute server’s 10Gb network interface to connect to the Nexus 93180 switches.

If you are using Cisco C-Series servers for compute, the 10Gb network ports on the MLoM (Modular LAN on Motherboard) should be directly connected to the two Nexus 93180 switches. Information on installing Cisco C-Series servers can be found on the Cisco Website.

If you are using Cisco servers, a Cisco Fabric Interconnect should only be used if using Cisco B-Series servers. All other supported Cisco compute servers should connect directly to the Cisco Nexus 93180 switches.

If you are using Cisco B-Series servers for compute, they must be connected to a pair of Cisco Fabric Interconnects. The Cisco Fabric Interconnects should be dual-connected to the Nexus 93180 switches. Please refer to the Cisco Fabric Interconnect documentation on the Cisco Website for how the servers should be connected to the Cisco Fabric Interconnects.

Use the following Port Map to ensure the correct wiring is implemented.
