UCS - san-port-channel over vpc

Hi,

I'm hoping someone can help out with this,

I have a setup with 2 Nexus 5548's connected over a vpc peer link and a keepalive, These two nexus switch's have a standard VPC connection to an upstream 6500. this is working fine,

Then there are multiple native FC connections from the 5548's to 6248's. I know there is the option to configure FC port-channel's on the UCS 2.0 but is it possible to put fc interfaces of the nexus 5548 into a san port-channel across a vpc between the the nexus 5548's.

so for example, can i port-channel the following across a vpc or is a san port-channel restricted to ports on the same nexus switch only.

Fabric A  fc1/31 & fc1/32    uplinked to  -> NX5K-1  Port fc1/31 & NX5K-2 Port fc1/32 (san port-channel 10 over a VPC)

Fabric B  fc1/31 & fc1/32    uplinked to  -> NX5K-1  Port fc1/32 & NXFK-2 Port fc1/31 (san port-channel 11 over a VPC)

Thanks,

Ray.

This is not possible. Vpc is layer 2 only ethernet port channel. San port channel cannot be built accross vpc

It will also break the holy grail of having an A and B fabric in het SAN world.
