vPC Member ports in suspended state.

Can someone indicate why my ethernet ports are in suspended state for some reason, i need an indication why this may be and what i can do to fix this issue.

configuration below. I have a 7010 which i'm using to connect to two 5510's. I have one vPC connecting the two 5510's to the 7010.

I have a vPC domain configured between the 5510's. and no issues at all.

My Nexus 7010 port channel members are suspended for some reason. Need to figure out what the problem is.

vPC Member ports in suspended state.

are you trying to create a vPC domain between the 7k and 5k?? if so you have configuration problems

Your vPC domain has a different ID for each switch, these should be the same. also you have your peer-keepalives configured in different vrf's, these should be the same

where is config for the second 5K??

Re: vPC Member ports in suspended state.

The VPC domain is up between the 5510's, but the port-channels don't come up between the nexus 7010 and the Nexus 5510's.

Re: vPC Member ports in suspended state.

Hi Carl,

On the 7010 It appears there is a mismatch on the configuration between  the two physical interfaces of Po100 (Ethernet

3/1 and Ethernet 8/1.

Difference = switchport mode trunk allowed vlan 1-3967,4048-4093 on Eth8/1 and switchport mode trun on Eth3/1 ).

You need to have a similar config on the physical interfaces of the VpC.

You can also check the consistency of the config throughout the two vpc peers =>

sh vpc consistency-parameters interface Po100

Regards.

Is there anything else you can spot.

I suspect that this is because i need to bring up the vpc peer link between the 7010's first. So i can't have po 100 working without having the vpc domain up between 7010's.

Anyway around this i only have one 7010 available at the moment. need to get the po100 up and working.

Since you only have one nexus 7k you have to use either the reload restore command or auto-recovery (depending on what version of code you are running).

The reload restore command should be available in 5.0(2a).  It goes under the vpc domain configuration.  Did you try and add it there?

Still no luck mate.

Can you also tell me what the priorities should be i'm going to configure all my switches within the same VPC domain.

But what should the vpc priorities be.

I have

2 Nexus 7010's = VPC domain 300, priority 100, 110

4 Nexus 5510's  = VPC domain 300, priority ?

Can you post a diagram of what you're trying to do?

At the very first thread of this post you say you have one 7010 - now you say you have two??

What have you got, and how is it physically connected? And what are you trying to achieve? Redundancy in 5510 uplinks to the 7010's? Redundancy in 5510 uplinks to 7010's *and* redundancy for nodes connected across 5510's? Something else?

From what I can see, your 7010's are not establishign the VPC peer-keepalive-link, and without that any VPC configuration is destined to fail. Also, you don't appear to have a VPC peer-link configured on your 7010, which is the core fo the whole VPC process.

I'm somewhat confused as to what you're trying to do, but you've got errors all over the palce from the output you're posting above.

Darren. I was using one nexus 7010 just for testing between two nexus 5510's.

The end game is. I require two nexus 7010's connected redundantly to four nexus 5510's.

2 Nexus 7010's core

2x 5510's = po 100

2x 5510's = po 200

I Configured each switch in the same vpc domain. WHich is fine.

My question is what should the priorities be.

The nexus switches are configured for 100 and 110  = prim secondary

What should the nexus 5510's be. They will be in the same Vpc domain.

I'm still confused as to what you're trying to do

You have the 7010's linked together in a VPC domain. That I can understand, and is dead easy to do.

What VPC domain do you need for the 5000's? If all you want to do is configure uplinks from the 5000's to each 7000, you don't need a VPC from the 5000's point of view - just make a regular channel group and plug one leg into 7010 number one and the other into 7010 number 2.

If you want to do something else, please draw out what you're trying to do so I can get my head around it.

Cheers.
