Nexus5000 L3 , Interaction HSRP with FP or vPC, L3 over FP

We have two Pairs of Nexus5596 on different sites , both pairs are configured as a vPC-Bundle, and all Nexus5596 have build in L3-Module.

There are some VLANs we need on both site because of redundancy, and if possible we need dyn L3 routing between this 2 sites.

We have 2x10GE between thi two sites and want to use both links (no STP)

Option 1:

Interconnecting the sites with a vPC

  • •- No way to have dyn Routing between the two sites , correct ?
  • •- all 4 L3-Modules are Participing in one HSRP-Group fort he VLANs which are on both sites, will this work or will we run in the same problem we have with
    dynamic Routing via a vPC

Interconnecting the sites with Fabric-Path

- dyn L3-routing via one FP-Vlan should not be a problem, correct ?

- HSRP between all 4 L3-Modules via FP VLANs should also not be a problem , correct ?
