I am deploying nutanix at one of our customers site but unfortunately now he has 2 Switches with 1 GIG ports so is it doable to remove the 10 GIG from the bond and rely only on the 2*1G ports ?

 

Model used (NX-1365-G6)

thanks in advance

It is but you’ll face a limit of max 8 nodes per cluster and a limited performance, mostly in est west traffic, due to the limited bandwidth.

The “only 1G” configuration is usually applied only for ROBO instances not for main DC environment, however, with the limitations I said before, it works for sure
