You want to move one of your leaf switches connecting to your ACI fabric to another rack.
It will be reconnected to the same fabric after the move.
Which operations must you perform before the move?
Click on the arrows to vote for the correct answerA. B. C. D.
Before moving a leaf switch connecting to an ACI fabric to another rack, the following steps should be taken:
Disable the interfaces: Before moving the switch, all the interfaces connected to the switch should be disabled. This is to ensure that no traffic is sent or received on the interfaces while the switch is being moved. Disabling the interfaces can be done through the ACI GUI or CLI.
Blacklist the ports: Blacklisting the ports on the switch ensures that the switch is not automatically re-added to the fabric after it is moved. This is important because if the switch is automatically re-added to the fabric without any additional configuration, it may cause issues with the existing configuration. To blacklist the ports, the switch's serial number and port numbers should be added to the fabric access policy.
Decommission the switch: Decommissioning the switch involves removing it from the ACI fabric. This can be done through the ACI GUI or CLI. Decommissioning the switch ensures that the fabric no longer recognizes the switch as part of the fabric, and any existing configuration is removed.
Option A and D both suggest decommissioning the switch, which is a necessary step. Option B suggests disabling the interfaces, which is also a necessary step. Option C suggests blacklisting the ports, which is an important step to prevent issues with the existing configuration. Therefore, the correct answers are options A, B, and C.
