Cisco Nexus 6004 (5596) Configuration – Fabricpath and Spine

Here is a quick template to setup a Cisco Nexus 6004 or 6001 (recently renamed to the 5600 series, so now the 5696). These are solid 40G switches that offer a ton of features. Fabricpath is used in this template for switch to switch communication. These are also setup as a “Spine” switch in a spine/leaf two tier design.
