Earlier we were using the Cisco 3600 Series type of fix port Switches. For providing the Switch level redundancy we connect two Switches with Stack Cable.
However, now in Cisco Nexus 9300 no Stack concept and need to configure the Port channel between two switches.
Please let us know in which document or Blog switch level redundancy is explained for Nexus 9300 fix port switches.
vPC for Nexus environment here is the quick reference guide : ( same works for any nexus environment)
Is it necessary to configure both switches with routes and vlan of the entire network, or do I only configure the primary switch? and then this configuration is replicated to the secondary (like Stacking).
Yes if we configure the VPc the client switch or the secondary switch with less priority will get all the features from the primary switch, and please note this will be configured in SSO stateful switchover so if the primary goes down secondary will come up automatically
also, you will never able to login to client switch, as always primary will be active and it will forward the packets
