Make a FEX LED turn on

Hi Guys

Starting the CCIE DC Studies and during a roll out of a nexus 7000/2000 deployment i came across this handy command:

on a nexus 5k or 7k with FEX modules attached:

locator-led fex XXX (where XXX is the FEX Number example 108) 

Will turn on the locator LED for that particular FEX :). A nice blue light will shine on so you can tell which FEX your referring too

I hope this helps someone out there


  1. Thanks, I was looking for this. I though "beacon" under "fex 100" would do it, but a Nexus 5548 does not take it.

  2. This is very educational content and written well for a change. It's nice to see that some people still understand how to write a quality post! led products
