Nexus 5596UP repeating CDP "device discovered of type Nexus 1010"

We have had this since we installed the Nexus 1010s but I want to get some help to clarify why.

We have 2 Nexus 1010 in HA. One is connected to a Nexus 5596UP vPC pair in one DC. The other connected to a second Nexus 5596UP vPC pair in the other DC. All 4 5596UP run 5.0(3)N1(1). Nexus 1010 run 4.2(1)SP1(3)

We see this message frequently in the logs of the Nexus 5596 switches

2012 Jan 14 17:40:25 NRK-BA01-SW1 %CDP-5-NEIGHBOR_REMOVED: CDP Neighbor NTM-DC-VSA-01(QCI1533A662) on port Ethernet1/30

I do not see the message at the same time in both switches of a vPC pair.

Nexus 5596UP repeating CDP "device discovered of type Nexus 1010

Do you have management IP configured for Nexus 1010 ?? Alternatively you can launch kvm and turn off cdp on nexus 1010 using "no cdp enable" configuration command till you configure management IP on it.

I have the same issue , even if the management IP is configured.

We were asked to change the CDP timer in Nexus 1010 to 120 secs to resolve this issue. I have still not tried it.. May be you can try it if your setup is still not in production..

Re: Nexus 5596UP repeating CDP "device discovered of type Nexus

Thanks for replying. Yes the 1010 do have a management ip address

NTM-DC-VSA-01# show run int mgmt0

interface mgmt0

  ip address 10.16.4.20/24

I have checked the cdp status and timers

show cdp interface mgmt0

Interface Index :83886080
Interface mgmt0:
    Operational status: up
    Config status: enabled
    Refresh time: 60
    Hold time: 180

The other weird thing is that the only CDP neigh the 1010 see is the VSM that resides on it.

10.16.4.20 is the mgmt0 of the VSM virtual blade. I have no idea where "interface eth0" is located on the VSA since there is no such interface.

Is that 120sec timer (refresh) or hold timer? Increasing the refresh timer sounds backwards.

Nexus 5596UP repeating CDP "device discovered of type Nexus 1010

this looks liek problem with Nexus 1010 Management Software version 4.2(1)SP1(3) as you can see in show cdp neigh int  eth 1/30 detail the port shows IPv4 address of hidden eth0 interface is 255.255.255.255 which is invalid. What is the uplink type that you use to connect to Nexus 5500?? Try disabling CDP and re-enable it.

kruh_shah

Yes we are using  4.2(1)SP1(3). We are running uplink type 3

I will start with trying to disable and enable CDP first. After that it's time to fix the broken primary Nexus 1010.(See below)

Nexus 5596UP repeating CDP "device discovered of type Nexus 1010

Hi Karlsson

How many VSM's do you have with Nexus 1010 ?

Can you send the show module from the VSM's ? There is a chance that the VSM is built from the standby unit, and due to that the Nexus 7k fails CDP with interfaces going to standby unit since all configs are done through active unit.. We had one of the VSM's which rebooted and flipped over to standby 1010. Since then the CDP fails with standby unit since this unit does not have any mgmt ip configured..

Actually at the moment we are in a situation that is rather broken. The Primary 1010 has crashed after a power outage and the secondary 1010 does not look fully healthy either. Could be that.

I'm going to reinstall the Primary Nexus 1010 tomorrow. However we did see these messages on the Nexus 5596s attached to the secondary 1010 even before the Primary crashed.

Nexus 5596UP repeating CDP "device discovered of type Nexus 1010

Yes.. Give it a shot.. Once it registers back to primary 1010 you should be fine..

By the way, if primary is crashed now, are you able to login to the iLo port of secondary, and do a "connect host" and see if you see the mgmt IP flipped to the secondary? If not, cdp will fail.. Try to see  if you are able to get onto 'conf t' on secondary now..

Re: Nexus 5596UP repeating CDP "device discovered of type Nexus

I can log into the VSA and VSM as usual. The mgmt interface is active on the secondary.
This for sure must be the whole point of having a HA cluster with the secondary becoming active if the primary fails?

I will get back to both of you with the results.

Re: Nexus 5596UP repeating CDP "device discovered of type Nexus

OK this is going to be a bit long winded so bare with me.............

Disabling and enabling CDP on the VSA gave me the following results to begin with in the two Nex 5596's

NTM-VSA-001# no cdp en

LNK-DE27-SW1#

2012 Feb  2 22:55:49 LNK-DE27-SW1 %CDP-5-NEIGHBOR_REMOVED: CDP Neighbor NTM-DC-VSA-01(1610440479132074267) on port Ethernet1/30 has been removed

The Nex 5596's still see the VSA as a CDP neigh on the ports for Ctrl and Packet.

2,5 min later CDP time out on the ports for Ctrl and Packet

2012 Feb  2 22:58:23 LNK-DE27-SW1 %CDP-5-NEIGHBOR_REMOVED: CDP Neighbor NTM-DC-VSA-01(QCI1533A7Q3) on port Ethernet1/32 has been removed

I now made sure the VSA CDP entries had timed out + waited another 3min to be sure no CDP entries from the VSA popped up.

Controlling the CDP neighbors on the Nex 5596's now showed eachother, the upstream VSS system + the VSM on all ports connected to ESX hosts with installed VEMs =)

I now switched CDP off on the mgmt0 and the control0 interfaces of the 1010.
Time to switch CDP on globally to see if something happens though it should not and guess what.....

LNK-DE27-SW2# 2012 Feb  2 23:08:28 LNK-DE27-SW2 %CDP-5-NEIGHBOR_ADDED: Device NTM-DC-VSA-01(1610440479132074267) discovered of type Nexus1010 with port control0 on incoming port Ethernet1/32 with ip addr 10.16.4.20 and mgmt ip 10.16.4.20

As it turns out swtching CDP on globally in the 1010 also turns it on for interface control0. However the CDP entry only shows up on one of four Ctrl and Packet interfaces on the 5596. Only one. This just ask for more investigation so I try to switch CDP off on interface control0 on the VSA but that does not work. Apparently one can disable it locally on mgmt0 but not on control0.

Interface control0:

    Operational status: up

    CDP global config status: disabled

    Config status: enabled

    Refresh time: 60

    Hold time: 180

NTM-DC-VSA-01# show cdp interface mgmt 0

Interface Index :83886080

Interface mgmt0:

    Operational status: up

    CDP global config status: disabled

    Config status: disabled

    Refresh time: 60

    Hold time: 180

So what happens when if one first switch on CDP on globally while it's disabled on mgmt0 and after a while enable it on mgmt0

enable CDP globally forcing it enabled on control 0:

CDP discoverd on one 5596 on a Ctrl and Packet interface

Then enable CDP on mgmt0

After this it goes back to how it was before. Every 180sec the CDP neighbors that are related to CDP on eth0-5 is removed and instantly added. The entries related to control0 DO NOT get removed and added.

For now I'm going to disable CDP to get rid of the anoying messages in the log. Lowering the refresh to 30 sec do not affect CDP from eth0-5
