Hi,

How many SPAN sessions do you have configured across all VDC on the switch? You can only have two active sessions per system and so may need to shutdown other monitor sessions to make hardware resource available.

To do that, you need to configure "mode extended" under every new session beyond the second, here is an example:

 

N7K-1(config)# monitor session 3

N7K-1(config-monitor)# mode extended

N7K-1(config-monitor)#

=========================================================

Configuration for Extended Session: SPAN Configuration

=========================================================

Nexus(config)# interface <enter interface where you want span (dest)>
Nexus(config-if)# switchport
Nexus(config-if)# switchport mode trunk
Nexus(config-if)# switchport monitor
Nexus(config-if)# monitor session 3
Nexus(config-monitor)# mode extended
Nexus(config-monitor)# source interface <enter (source) interfaces>
Nexus(config-monitor)# destination interface <enter (dest) interface>
Nexus(config-monitor)# no shut

========================================================

Nexus(config-monitor)# sh monitor

Nexus(config-monitor)# sh monitor session all
