nexus 1000v vsm secondary not recognized

I deployed the seondary vsm but when it came up the primary vsm still does not recognize that there is a standby.

 

I went through the ovf and selected seondary and only entered the vsm domain id and the admin password.

 

after the power on the master did not see the secondary

 

any idea?

Hi Tony,In order for this VSM

Hi Tony,

In order for this VSM to see its peer, you need to configure it for system redundancy role Primary. 

As shown in the output, it is currently running in standalone mode.

Once we reconfigure the first deployed VSM as primary, the two VSMs should see each other (given they have L2 connectivity)

Nexus1000v# show system redundancy status
Redundancy role
---------------
      administrative:   standalone
         operational:   standalone

Redundancy mode
---------------
      administrative:   HA
         operational:   None

This supervisor (sup-1)
-----------------------
    Redundancy state:   Active
    Supervisor state:   Active
      Internal state:   Active with no standby

Other supervisor (sup-2)
------------------------
    Redundancy state:   Not present
Nexus1000v# con
Nexus1000v(config)# system redundancy role primary

After this change, the VSMs will negotiate and the secondary will reboot. When the secondary comes back up, we should see that they have paired.

Nexus1000v(config)# show redundancy status
Redundancy role
---------------
      administrative:   primary
         operational:   primary

Redundancy mode

      administrative:   HA
         operational:   HA

    Redundancy state:   Active
    Supervisor state:   Active
      Internal state:   Active with HA standby

HTH,

Joe
