Nexus 7010 port-channel failed, not receiving any LACP BPDUs

Hi every one,

I'm having issue when trying to form LACP etherchannel links between N7k and server. Here's the setup:

SERVER eth0-------N7K-1 Eth102/1/9

SERVER eth1-------N7K-2 Eth102/1/9

Configuration:

N7K-1# sh run int eth102/1/9

interface Ethernet102/1/9

  switchport

  switchport access vlan 204

  channel-group 321

  no shutdown

N7K-1# sh run int po321

interface port-channel321

  switchport

  switchport access vlan 204

  flowcontrol send on

  vpc 321

N7K-2# sh run int eth102/1/9

interface Ethernet102/1/9

  switchport

  switchport access vlan 204

  channel-group 321

  no shutdown

N7K-2# sh run int po321

interface port-channel321

  switchport

  switchport access vlan 204

  flowcontrol send on

  vpc 321

vPC status

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

id   Port   Status Consistency Reason                     Active vlans

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

321  Po321  up     success     success                    204            

Scenario 1-Etherchannel only without protocol

Both links are up, problem only happened when link to N7K-2 restart. If link to N7K-1 restart no problem.

Scenario 2-Etherchannel with LACP

Both physical links NOT up. Logs showing this:

Scenario 3-Etherchannel with LACP to single 3750 switch

All working fine, fail over success as expected.

N7k is using NX-OS 6.0(4)

Anyone facing this issue?

Re:Nexus 7010 port-channel failed

Note: configuration on nexus with lacp mode, channel-group 321 mode active

As for now, only static etherchannel is "usable"

Re: Nexus 7010 port-channel failed

Hi,

How is the teaming configured on the server side? Is LACP enabled?

Re: Nexus 7010 port-channel failed

Hi,

On the server side, bonding is configured with lacp (mode 4, 802.3ad). Test on the scenario 3 (LACP etherchannel to single 3750 switch) confirmed server is configured correctly. Is there any limitation on LACP in N2k?

Re: Nexus 7010 port-channel failed

Hi,

Does it work with LACP from cisco switch to FEX? You need enable bpdufilter on the switch port for that test. LACP from FEX to pair N7K is supported, but it could be a bug in 6.0 code. Please open a case with TAC to troubleshoot further.

HTH,

Hi Lei Tian,

I'm working with TAC engineer now. Apparently N7K still not receiving any LACP BPDU even from switch (switch with bpdufilter enable). Will share for any findings.

Issues happened due to bug CSCty99763

Hi,

I had had this problem before.

Please, put the following command, if in your server side is using LACP:

interface Ethernet102/1/9

  switchport

  switchport access vlan 204

  channel-group 321 mode active

  no shutdown

N7K-1# sh run int po321

interface port-channel321

  switchport

  switchport access vlan 204

  flowcontrol send on

  vpc 321

N7K-2# sh run int eth102/1/9

interface Ethernet102/1/9

  switchport

  switchport access vlan 204

  channel-group 321 mode active

  no shutdown

N7K-2# sh run int po321

interface port-channel321

  switchport

  switchport access vlan 204

  flowcontrol send on

  vpc 321

Please refer to my 2nd post on Aug 20, 2013

Upgraded to 6.2(2) and solved the problem.

We are seeing some very similar issues. We are connecting an HP DL380 g8 server to a CISCO 2000 FEX which goes back to a NX 7000.  When we connect through to a 5000 it works.

Even outside of LACP connection, a single connection port won't pass VLAN traffic for us either. VMs can not ping through.

VMware has given us a clean bill of health.

We have opened a TAC case with CISCO and he tech doesn't think our nxos version is affected 6.1[4].

We have tried the 'workaround' with no success.

We have also reviewed (admittedly not completely thoroough) 6.2 patch notes and not seen anything relavant.

CISCO is currently stumped.
