I have a paif of nexus 5548 configured VPC using the mgmt interface as heartbeat and 2x10G as peerlink. Peer-gateway is also configure on the vpc domain. I have 2 FEX straight thru connection to each Nexus'es. Created 2 VPC and both are up and no suspended vlans. Allowed VLANs in peerlink is 10,20,30,40 and 50. I configure SVI for VLAN 10 on both nexus 10.10.10.100/24 and 10.10.10.101/24 respectively. The problem is when I create HSRP on this VLAN 10 (vip 10.10.10.88), the hello packets are not heard by both nexus, thus both Nexus are acting as active with unknown standby. I can ping both vlan 10 from each Nexus. I tried deleting and putting back the config but no luck.I tried creating another SVI vlan 20 on both nexus and form hsrp, result is same as in vlan 10. I am running version 5.1 release on both nexus. Has anyone encounter this issue before?
