N5K FabricPath/vPC+

Re: N5K FabricPath/vPC+

Hi,

The issue you have is that you don't have any VLANs configured and operating in FabricPath mode i.e.,

!

vlan 100

  mode fabricpath

!

I just set this up using your configuration and see exactly the same behavior until a VLAN is created that then has mode fabricpath configured.

If you look at the peer-link state in the FabricPath topology and active the VLANs I think you'll see the forwarding state of the interface is DOWN and there are no active VLANs.

N5K-p10-1# sh fabricpath isis interface port-channel 101

Fabricpath IS-IS domain: default

Interface: port-channel101

  Status: protocol-up/link-up/admin-up

  Index: 0x0001, Local Circuit ID: 0x01, Circuit Type: L1

  No authentication type/keychain configured

  Authentication check specified

  Extended Local Circuit ID: 0x16000064, P2P Circuit ID: 0000.0000.0000.00

  Retx interval: 5, Retx throttle interval: 66 ms

  LSP interval: 33 ms, MTU: 1500

  P2P Adjs: 1, AdjsUp: 1, Priority 64

  Hello Interval: 10, Multi: 3, Next IIH: 00:00:03

  Topologies enabled:

    Topology Metric  MetricConfig Forwarding

    0        20      no           DOWN

N5K-p10-1# sh fabricpath topology interface port-channel 101

Interface           Topo-Description                 Topo-ID    Topo-IF-State

------------------- -------------------------------- ---------- -------------

port-channel101     0                                0               Down

N5K-p10-1# sh fabricpath topology vlan active

Topo-Description                 Topo-ID   Active VLAN List

-------------------------------- --------- -------------------------------------

0                                0         --

If you then change the VLAN mode from mode ce to mode fabricpath (note that you need to exit the vlan configuration mode for the change to take effect), you should see the following SYSLOG message:

2014 Feb  3 12:50:23 N5K-p10-1 %ETHPORT-3-IF_ERROR_VLANS_REMOVED: VLANs 99-100 on Interface port-channel101 are removed from suspended state.

2014 Feb  3 12:50:23 N5K-p10-1 %L3VM-5-FP_TPG_INTF_UP: Interface port-channel101 up in fabricpath topology 0

And then show vpc will indicate that the vPC fabricpath status as "peer is reachable through fabricpath"

N5K-p10-1# sh vpc

Legend:

                (*) - local vPC is down, forwarding via vPC peer-link

Hi,

Is your port-channel 1 interface which is configured as your vPC peer-link operating as a FabricPath interface? Can you post the output of the show fabricpath isis interface brief command.

If you look at the peer-link state in the FabricPath topology and active the VLANs I think you'll see the forwarding state of the interface is DOWN and there are no active VLANs.

Re: N5K FabricPath/vPC+

Hi steve,

You are right, i have configured one vlan as fabricpath mode and the peer is reachable.

Thks for your help.

Regards.
