vPC peer keep alive (management VRF) N5K

        Hi,

If I'd like to create the vPC peer keep alive (routed), do I need a L3 module (Nexus 5K) to do the keep alive?

As best practive, keep alive should always be routed, so a L3 should always be necessary, or do I miss something in my reasoning ?

Regards

Jan

vPC peer keep alive (management VRF) N5K

Best practice is to configure Keepalive on Mgmt interface for that vrf mgmt comes as default but if you want to use seprate vrf for keealive then yes layer 3 module is required.

thanks

Hi Jan,

L3 module is not required for vPC Peer keep alive. Peer will be directly connected, routing is not needed.

Hi Jan,

We recommend to use the mgmt0 interface if possible, this interface is member of a different VRF and there is no need to use the layer 3 module.

Please note that you will lose the ISSU feature if you insert a Layer 3 module.
