Nexus 9000v vPC

Is there anything special I have to do on VMware to get two 9000v's setup as a vPC pair?  When I build the vPC, the link will come up and then throw the log up below and block all VLAN's from traversing the peer-link.  If I put the same config on two physical 9K's, it works fine.

I've done the Google searching and not coming up with anything.

Re: Nexus 9000v vPC

I got this to work for anyone else in the future that needs help with this.  In order to get the vPC to stay up between the 9000v's, I configured two new physical NIC's in VMWare along with a new virtual switch and VLAN.  Each NIC on the the 9K maps to one of those new NIC's.  Make sure to configure your VLAN in VMware tagged as 4095 to pass everything.  From there, just connect the VMNIC's back to back with via Ethernet and it should come up and stay up.

Re: Nexus 9000v vPC

Hello

you need to make sure the two switches have the same vlans applied on each switch and allow them to traverse the port channel of the designated peer link

lastly i would say  its best to have the vpc peer keepalive connection as a L3 interface so then its-not part of any vlan or trunk be it peerlink or normal vpc



kind regards
