Minimum and Recommended Cisco NX-OS Releases for Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches
This document lists the minimum and recommended Cisco NX-OS software releases for use with Cisco Nexus 9000 Series switches for both new and existing deployments. These recommendations are general and should not replace environment specific design review efforts and should not override Advanced Services recommended releases if employed.
General Recommendation for New and Existing Deployments
Cisco recommends that customers with new and existing Cisco Nexus 9000 Series deployments choose from the following minimum and recommended releases:
Cisco Nexus 9500*
Cisco Nexus 9300
Cisco Nexus 9300 with VXLANs
Cisco Nexus 9300 with Fabric Extender (FEX)
*The Cisco Nexus 9500 Series switches require a minimum of 6.1(2)I2(2a) to operate with some new chassis and line cards. See the release notes for Cisco NX-OS Release 6.1(2)I2(2a) for more information.
Existing Deployments That Use Software Earlier Than One of the Recommended Releases
To the extent possible, Cisco recommends upgrading to one of the Cisco NX-OS releases listed previously. If that is not possible, Cisco recommends that you review the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series NX-OS Release Notes for the earlier release and the Bug Search Tool to determine the impact of any open caveats.
