I'm currently quite baffled with the problem I'm encountering. I hope you can help me figuring this one out. My setup is as follows:
I've got four nexus 7k's as core switches. Two of them per datacenter. Connected to them are 4 5k's, again two per datacenter. The 5k's are redundantly connected with the 7k's on the same location. The 7k's are connected with each other and their namesakes in the other datacenter.
Connected to the 5k's is a UCS on which some VM's run. One of these VM's is a TFTP server. The other VM's attempt to boot using this TFTP server. The curious case is that some of these are able to boot from TFTP and other are not.
The server is in vlan 650 and the clients in vlan 251. Routing is done on the 7k's which are running hsrp. The current active hsrp node is called 1001. Its neighbor 7k is called 1002.
When tracing the traffic we see the TFTP requests leaving the UCS and arriving on one of the two 5k's, after this the traffic is spotted on one of the two 7k's. On 1001 the routing is performed and so the traffic leaves vlan 251 and enters 650. We can see the traffic on vlan interface 650's egress 'port'. However, it never arrives at the server. As far as I can see (using wireshark) it never even arrives on the 5k on its way back to the UCS.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3.
16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted
towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are
looking for early feedback from customers befor...
