Description (partial)

Nested NPV switches are not supported in our topology.

If user connect one NPV switch to another NPV switch, the port will never come online and user won't be able to observe the logins on the lower NPV switch. 
Hence, we don't recommend the one NPV switch to be connected to another NPV switches in a fabric. This condition is applicable for all platforms supporting NPV mode across all releases.

One NPV switch is connected to another NPV switch.
