I have an ASR that is configured for OTV and is functioning correctly. I have a single connection on the ASR trunking to a downstream 5K that contains all the VLAN's. For redundancy I would like to take another gigabit interface on the ASR and trunk it to the second 5K. Then I thought I would configure a vPC on the 5K's and port channel the two interfaces on the ASR. I configured everything and I didn't have any problems until I tried adding the OTV service instance under the port channel interface on the ASR. I can't find any design docs on creating redundant connections from ASR's running OTV to downstream switches. What are you all doing for redundancy?
ASR1000-01(config)# int po2
ASR1000-01(config-if)# service instance 10 ethernet

I wanted to know if you got this working please? I am in the same situation.
I ended up opening a TAC case and they stated that it is not possible and that redundancy should be asecond ASR and a pair of downstream switches. e.g. ASR-1 to NEXUS5K-1 and ASR-2 to NEXUS5K-2. Lame if you ask me
Hi Colin, actually you can have the join interface as the loopback interface but is not supported by Cisco. Maybe in this version of code I was using at the time, we cannot create service instances under a port channel which would be a loss.
There is a video on YouTube, think I uploaded it a while ago showing that it works. On new firmware they have probably stopped us from doing that now.
