CISCO FabricPath

Can I plug an Arista 7050 switch which does not support FabricPath in to a Cisco Nexus core which is configured to use FabricPath? What are the implications? Can you point me to any relevant documentation I can read?

That's what I thought.  No. FabricPath is Cisco proprietary.  A non-FabricPath device can connect to the FabricPath network, but not be part of it.  FabricPath is transparent to the non FP devices.

Great - I meant to say FabricPath - layer 2 routing. I can't seem to edit the question so I will delete it and resubmit
