I am currently using Stackwise Virtual to connect 2 C9500 switches. I am now wondering what the difference between leaving the 2 switches connected via Stackwise connection or connecting them via vPC.
The way I understand it is that they are now logically connected so they should act as 1 switch correct? So is there really a difference? What confuses me is one switch is 'ACTIVE' and one switch is 'STANDBY' in Stackwise as a . .on the other hand, configuring them vPC using a trunk port and port-channel and the 2 switches are connected via a L2/L3 connection? Is there really a difference? I just thought Stackwise would be better because I could just login to 1 switch for the administration of both switches.
