connect nexus 5k to hp 3800 via vPC

As the title says, I am connecting a stack of 3800 switches to a Nexus 5K pair using a virtual Port Channel. However, the second connection never comes up, and in the one case we've had where connection 1 goes down, the second connection didn't take over. Is anyone out there doing this successfully?

 

Thanks,

 

Russell

Can you from the Nexus with the port channel that is down -

1) specify which ports make up the port channel

2) post a "sh vpc" from that switch

Sorry, i thought the "sh vpc" would also show the member ports not just the port channel interface.

Can you post -

"sh vpc consistency-parameters interface ethernet 1/1"

RussellI suspect the issue

Russell

I suspect the issue may be a consistency check failure at the interface level (although i could be wrong).

The port channel shows as successful for the consistency checks but that doesn't necessarily mean the physical interface passed.

The last command i asked for should have shown the consistency check status for the physical interface but it is saying it is unsupported.

So what is the equivalent physical interface on the working switch and can you run the command on that one.

Is the physical interface on the working switch from the same linecard type ?

Jon

On both 5K-1 and 5K-2, the

On both 5K-1 and 5K-2, the physical interface is E1/1, which is in port-channel 101, which is in vPC 101. The show commands of the PC and the physical interface for both nexus switches is in my previous post - 

working:

HMMB5K-1#  sh vpc consistency-parameters int e1/1

not working:

HMMB5K-2# sh vpc consistency-parameters int e1/1

Yes you did post both

Yes you did post both switches, my mistake.

What linecards are the physical ports on ?

Check the logs on the side

Check the logs on the side that did not come up ,usually it will tell you why it did not bring the second side up .  Post a show vpc consistency-parameters .   On the 3800 stack are your uplinks all bound into the same port channel ??

Hi Russell,Can you post the

Hi Russell,

Can you post the output of show port-channel summary, show lacp neigh int port-ch 101, show lacp counter int port 101 and show int eth1/1?

Also do you have UDLD configured on the Nexus switches? I've seen UDLD cause issues when connecting to HP switches as the UDLD frames are simply passed through the HP switch. Perhaps also include a show udld neigh if UDLD is enabled.

Regards
