I have a Nexus 5K setup with two Nexus 5548 with layer 3 daughtercard. It’s not a particularly standard setup using them as a standard LAN core, with multiple VPC’s to various edge switches and HSRP on the Nexus'.
There’s also a few non VPC connections for which we have an entirely separate trunk. One VLAN providing layer 3 point to point connectivity between the Nexus, the other non VPC related VLANs trunked across to provide standard layer 2 connectivity.
Multiple peer links and separate keepalive link currently using directly connected management ports.
I believe my config would have worked on a 7K (I hope to test that in the next few days), but it’s eluding me on the 5K.
The problems have come when reloading the primary Nexus, the secondary also drops it’s VPC connections.
I had included the following commands:
vpc domain 11
The intention was that the first command allowed the VPC’s to stay up when the peer disappeared, and the second one allowed the VPC’s to come up after a reload if one of the switches doesn’t re-appear, but I may have misinterpreted those commands.
Running version 5.1(3)N1(1)
Can the "Nexii" work on their own? I'm sure I don't need both switches active to have the switches hanging off them active?
I'm a little stuck for testing at the moment. Next week I have another similar install, and can test till my hearts content, but this was a little awkward that the install was a live cut over with almost zero testing time. I had 20 minutes to find out the failover doesn't work. For now they're making sure both Nexus stay up and we revisit after next weeks work.
I'll try to update when I find out what's happening with it.
