Cisco Nexus 7700 Switches delivers the highest-capacity 10, 40, and 100 Gigabit Ethernet ports in the industry, with up to 768 native 10-Gbps ports, 384 40-Gbps ports, or 192 100-Gbps ports. All Cisco Nexus 7000 Series chassis use a passive mid-plane architecture, providing physical connectors and copper traces for interconnecting the fabric modules and I/O modules for direct data transfer. All inter-module switching is performed via crossbar fabric ASICs on the individual I/O modules and fabric modules. Consolidation of multiple switches in the Cisco Nexus 7700 Switches is made possible by the high density of ports on the switches combined with high-performance device virtualization, comprehensive reliability, and availability features.
One of the modules on the switch running NX-OS version 6.2(6a) is rebooting with following messages.

The EOBC is Ethernet Out of Band Channel. There are regular keepalives or 'heartbeats' going between the sup and line cards. The error messages you received indicate a heartbeat went missing between SUP and linecard. If a single heartbeat went missing, it will be corrected automatically, however if multiple heartbeats are lost simultaneously then the line card would be reset (sup would power off and power on that slot in attempt to resolve a diagnostic issue).
After this one time reset id the card is stable then it can be considered this as a one time (transient) issue.
You can also check EOBC stats to see if any error increasing using following commands.

The first link says 9200s support PVLANs, the second link doesn't list a maximum. Does the 9200 series support PVLANs and does it match the 16/20 (primary/secondary) that a 9300 supports? Does the 9200 support PVLAN over VXLAN?https://www.cisco....
Hello.I never run Nexus Swithes...So, I have a few questions. In an environment configured with a VPC Can the traffic of the Orphan port connected to the bottom be forwarded through the peer link??? (I wonder if it works like Catalyst's Inter-link.) ...
