MultiChassis Etherchannel between Nexus 9364 and Fortigate 1200D v.5.6

Hello,

 

We want to know if its possible to create a port-channel between two Nexus 9364 and a fortigate using the vPC feature.

 

In case that is it possible,

What we have to take in consideration in order to implement this design?

It can be a Layer 3 Port Channel?

Do we have to make any change at Spanning tree protocol?

Is it recommended?? or it can be better to implement two Layer 3 link from the fortigate to each Nexus??

 

BelowI share what the physical topology would look like and how the connections would look logically.

Hi,

Not sure if this is possible using a PO. Depending on what Fortigate supports, you may want to aggregate the 2 interfaces together and than use a transit vlan with a /28 subnet spanning both Nexus and the Fortigate switch.

So, Fortigate switch one IP and each Nexus one IP for a total of 3.

In that scenario the fortigate would form adjacency with each nexus Switch creating ECMP routing what I think is good.

That is correct. The Fortigate peers with both Nexus switches.
