vPC best practices

I am deploying 12 5548s. Two per rack connecting downstream to two 4005s to start. Each rack is designed to grow to 6 4005s(three IBM chassis). Upstream the 5548s are conneting to 6500s via L2 but within the next year or so they will be 7ks.

My question is what would be the best practice for assigning vPC domains. Right now it doesn't matter but I dont what to have to go back and change them when we deploy the 7ks and leverage vPCs between the 7ks and 5ks.

thanks

David,

The VPC domain ID range is from 1 to 1000.  So, you can create your own scheme and apply it to your environment.

Here is the config guide for more info:
