Nexus 5000 vpc and fabricpath considerations

Unanswered Question

Hello community,


I'm currently in the process of implementing a fabricpath environment which includes Nexus 5548UP as well Nexus 7009

NX OS on N5K is 6.0(2)N1(2)



Regarding the FP config on the N5K I wonder what is the best practice for the peer-link. Is it necessary to configure the Portchannel like below:


interface port-channel2

  description VPC+ Peer Link

  switchport mode fabricpath

  spanning-tree port type network

  vpc peer-link


There are several VLANs configured as FP.


As I understand we can remove the command:

spanning-tree port type network


Can anyone confirm this ?


Also I noticed a "cosmetic" problem. On two port 1/9 and 1/10 on both N5K it isn't possible to execute the command "speed"?!


When the command speed is executed I receive the following error:

ERROR: Ethernet1/9: Configuration does not match the port capability


Also please notice after the vPC and FP configuration we don't do a reload!



Thanks

Udo
