Question On VPC On 5596

I have the following setup and have a questions concerning the setup of the VPCs on the 5596 switches. Do the VPC and port channel groups have to be the same on both 5596 switches. For example if the VPC and port channel numbers are  600 on NX 5000-1 should they be ve VPC 600 and port channel 600 on NX 5000-2.

Can they be different

vpc # has to be same on both peers. Also there is no reason you should not keep port-channel number and vpc number same. Keep both numbers same that way it is less manamgement overhead.
