Nexus 7k number of supported VPC

Answered Question
Mar 31st, 2010

Hello, can someone give me a reference on maximum number of VPC domains per VDC on the latest code for N7k?

We are building a new datacenter with 5k upstream to 7k with 2 VPC per 5k. How far we can scale?

Thanks

NX-OS 4.2 supports up to 256 VPCs per device but you can only have one VPC domain per VDC, see attached link for details -

I am little confused on this aspec:

If I can have only one vPC domain per VDC what does it mean by 256 vPCs per device. Does this mean 256 vPC peer links?

thanks

don't get confused with vpc peer link, vpc domain ID and vpc member.  one domain ID per vdc, and plenty of vpc member.
