Nexus 7K VPC configuration

Hi,

I'm creating a data centre design that will use 14 VPCs to various devices spanning across two Nexus 7009 switches.  My question is regarding the VPC keep-alive link.  Do I need 14 links each with a  different subnet/VRF or can a single Keep-alive link be used for all VPCs?  I've read the best practice guide so I'm familiar with how to configure these but the guide doesn't provide an answer regarding my question.

 

Thanks in advance

  No you should only need a

  No you should only need a single dedicated link . It's basically there to send keepalives back and forth so the boxes know each other is still alive.
