We have setup a pair of Nexus 5596 L3 switches with 2 x 10Gbps LACP links between them to act as the vpc peer link. We also have another 2 x 10Gbps LACP links between the 5596 switches to carry non VPC VLANs, this is required to provide EIGRP routing between the switches and an upstream router
I have read that it is possible to setup the vpc keep-alive link over an SVI instead of the management interfaces. Is it ok to run the keep-alive SVI over the second LACP non VPC VLAN trunk or is it recommened to keep this seperate?
I know it's been a while, but just figured I'd take a stab at answering your question. It's definitely recommended to use another link besides the non-vPC trunk for your vPC keepalive. In fact, it's a best practice to use the management interfaces for this sort of thing, and you shouldn't use SVIs for your vPC keepalive if you can avoid it.
