Wow, last week I was swamped preparing for a domestic MPLS migration in India (more on that later). I wanted to post this sooner…
In Part 1 of configuring virtual port channels on the Nexus, I talked about what may be needed to enable the vpc feature. Here’s a continuation of the process.
Between your two nexus boxes, you’re going to have a vpc peer link and a vpc peer keep-alive link. Without the keep-alive link, your vpc peer link wont come up.
! Again, the first thing you want to do is enable vpc
Nexus1(config)# feature vpc
The vpc peer link between switches is going to be your traditional layer 2 trunk. There are some other minor configurations you will need regarding your vpc peer link.
