Physical Topology of the Test Bed
Topology Test Bed
The first two fabrics created in this guide use the same physical leaf/spine topology as shown above (Lab Automation is a bit different, so we will cover the topology later in the document).
There are six DELL S4112T-ON and two DELL S4148 leafs connected to two DELL Z9100-ON spine switches in our testbed. UNUM is installed on an ESXi server (not shown) and configured to communicate with all of the switches through the management network.
All switches are racked, cabled, and powered on.
Note: Throughout this guide, we will be providing specific IP address and network configuration information as part of our examples that are particular to our setup topology. Customers will need to tailor these settings to their specific deployment environments.
