First time i doing this and doing it solo.
I have a pair of Arista's in our DC and we change them out for a vPC Domain with Nexus's
The Arista's are upstream and have storage, VM's and other nodes connected to it.
It' has vlan's and ACLs
It also connects to our firewall, i.e. internet, VPN and AWS direct connect
I'd like to mirror the config to the new Nexus's so don't have to change config's anywhere else.
Down stream connects to our office with another pair of Nexus's in a vPC Domain
What do i need to look out for?
- Matching Virtual IP
- Matching Vlan IPs,
- Port Channels with the right trunk vlans
- ACL lists
I'll have a port channel group with a link between each switch.
Do I need to change the vpc group number between the domains?
e.g Office vPC domain on port-channel 32, vpc32
DC vPC domain on port-channel 32, vpc32
Do i need to clear any cache on the Office vPC domain?
