Cisco Switching/Routing :: Nexus 7010 / 5510 - Run OSPF As Layer 3 Routing Protocol Between VPC Peer Links

Mar 25, 2012

I have an environment where i have two nexus 7010 switches, along with 2 nexus 5510's. I need to run OSPF as a layer 3 routing protocol between the vpc peer links.  I have 1 link being used as a keep alive link, and 3 other links being used as a VpC link.
1) Is it best to configure a separate Vpc VLAN i.e 1010

2) Is it best to configure a vrf context keep-alive

3) just have the management address as the peer ip's.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Nexus 5596 - Are VPC Peer Links Locally Significant

Mar 17, 2013

I currently have Nexus 5596 pair with VPC peer link Po1 between them.  My goal is to connect our new Nexus 7Ks to the 5K's using Fabric Path.  My question is during this inital setup with the 7K's.  Can I use the same port channel number on the 7K's as I did the 5K's?  Is the port channel locally significat?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Nexus 7010 - Stop Default Static Redistribution Into OSPF?

Sep 24, 2012

Ok I didn't setup my OSPF on my 7010. Today I found out that any static route I put into my 7010 gets sent into to my MPLS network. My 6509's you have to "Tag" the static rout for this to happen. Was under the impression the same was necessary for the 7010 or at least it had to "match" an access list. How can I fix the below so that by default all static routes are not resdistributed into OSPF?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Nexus 7010 OSPF Passive-interface Default Not Showing

Nov 6, 2011

I'm currently working on a plan to migrate our 6500's over to our new 7010's.  At the time of the migration I want to tighten up our OSPF design and configure OSPF for "passive-interface default" then allow only those interfaces that should have OSPF neighbors to send the hellos.  The issue is that the command is not showing up under the OSPF process.  What's even more interesting is that the Nexus 5.x Unicast Routing Configuration Guide shows that the "passive-interface default" command should be an option to enter.
I'm currently running version 5.1(4) (though looking to upgrade to 5.2 during my migration testing).  I would rather configure the passive-interface via the routing process versus having to enter it on every interface.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 2900 - Nexus 7010 Layer 2 VLan 11 Active But Interface Shutdown

Sep 13, 2012

I understand the vlans on the catalyst side of the house on 2900 to 6500 Catalyst switches.
This 7010  running nx-os 5.1(3) I did not setup, but have to manage it.  Hasn't really been a proble till now.
My nexus 7010 has a Layer 2 only vlan 11. It is "Active" but the interface is "shutdown".  Yet, it is passing traffic across the directly connected  ports on the nexus 7010 and to other switches in my network.  Vlan 11 is being set out via VTP to all my switches and things are running fine.
I need to create another L2 only Vlan.  I can't seem to find any docs  that indicate that a Layer2 vlan Interface on nx-os should be in  "shutdown" mode as part of the setup. I do see in the docs where it has  to be set "Active" as part of the process.
Is this the correct way to seutp a L2 only vlan on nex-os? Leave the interface in "shutdown" but make it "Active"?
Mystery Vlan 4 and 6
The mystery deepens.  I have other L2 vlans ,Vlan4&6 that are NOT defined as "Interface Vlan4" in the nexus config, yet it is applied to GigE ports on the nexus and these Vlans 4/6is also being sent out VTP to all switches.  Even weirder is that these vlans have names associated with the numbers.  These are valid Vlans that were configured on the old 6509 before the Nexus was installed.
I have checked all switches, NONE are running in Server mode for VTP, all are in CLIENT. The nexus 7010 is the only device running in VTP Server mode.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Nexus 7010 - Inter-VLAN Routing On Multilayer VPC Environment

Feb 16, 2011

you find attached my network architecture with 2 Nexus 7010 on core layer and 2 Nexus 5020 on distribution layer, each one with 1 N2148T fabric extender switch. PC-A1 and PC-A2 are connected to one N2148T, PC-B1 is connected to the other N2148T. Nexus-7000-1 is HSRP Active for all VLANs, Nexus-7000-2 is HSRP standby. PC-A1 and PC-A2 are connected to VLAN A, PC-B1 is connected to VLAN B. PC-A1 and PC-A2 have the same default gateway correspondent to IP HSRP on VLAN A. It happens that PC-A1 is able to ping PC-B1 while PC-A2 is unable to ping PC-B1. If I issue a traceroute from PC-A2 I see Nexus-7000-2’s physical IP address as the first hop even if Nexus-7000-2 is HSRP standby. After the first hop the traceroute is lost. If I shutdown Port-channel 20 on Nexus-5000-2, PC-A2 starts to ping PC-B1.I can’t understand what’s wrong in this architecture.

Cisco Switching/Routing ::1002 Layer 3 Ether-channel Vs Two Separate Links

May 19, 2013

We were going to create a 2 port, layer 3 etherchannel between a 1002 router and a 3750X layer 3 core switch. We wanted to create bunled link between them but, now we are going to be putting a Riverbed device between the router and core switch. Because of this, would it be best to abandon the idea of creating a layer 3 etherchannel and just have 2 links from the router and core switch and have traffic load balance between the 2 links?The Riverbed will have 2 connections into it from the Core switch and 2 connections into it from the 1002 router. I was hoping to keep the layer 3 etherchannel but, do you think it would be best to create 2, /29 nets and have the router/Riverbed and Core Switch/Riverbed load balance.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Connecting Nexus 7010 VDC With VPC

Jan 29, 2013

In our LAN network design, we have two Nexus 7010 switches on the core connected via vPC. Then LAN access switches are directly connected to the Core Nexus switches  via  regular port channels on the 3750's  and vPC on Nexus. The core Nexus switches will be linked to an existing LAN network and the applications will be progressively migrated from the old to the new network.In this scenario, three VDCs are planned to be configured on the Nexus -  One for the Interconnect (and WAN at a later stage), one for the LAN/local services and one for the building facilities/local services.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Logging In Nexus 7010 6.x?

Sep 19, 2012

We recently replaced our core switch from a non-cisco vendor with a Nexus 7010.  With our old core switch, I had the ability to log changes to the ARP table.  So if there was a dhcp conflict or a vMotion event, it would show up in the "show log" output.  I've not found a way to do that with the Nexus switch - or at least no way to view the log.  I have the command: logging level arp 6

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Layer 3 Switching And ASA 5505 With OSPF?

Jun 15, 2012

We are setting up a test lab in our DMZ.  The path to the internet is basically like this.  Anything past the firewall is irrelevant. For this lab lets assume it is vlan 300.
LAB IP Range = 172.16.300.0 /24
GW = 172.16.300.1 (On FW int)
Trunked all the way through.
I have an int vlan set up on the LAB SW.  It is being trunked to DMZ SW.   DMZ trunks it to ASA FW where there is a failover with a redundant switch.On the ASA the interface 0/2 is a subinterface 0/2.300 being used as the default gateway. 
I have DHCP running in a specific range on the LAB SW and do get an ip address when plugged in.  I cannot ping the default gateway on the ASA FW.The GW is defined using default-router command for 172.16.300.1 i.e.  default-router 172.16.300.1?
We are running ospf on the firewall.  There appears to be a pattern with ospf and a similar subnet setup elsewhere.  I was wondering based off of this info would configuring ospf for 172.16.300.0/24 allow me to ping the GW from a client on the LAB SW.Secondly.  I trunked 300 on the DMZ SW but I didnt add the vlan  to the configuration. i.e.  conf t <enter> vlan 300 <enter>  Does this really matter?  Or is having the vlan in the configuration only pertain to access mode on interfaces?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Nexus 7010 Dual Sup ISSU

Aug 7, 2012

I have to upgrade a Nexus 7010 with dual Sup engines from 4.2(4) to 5.2 and am hoping it could be an ISSU. We are fine with an outage window.To upgrade from 4.2(4) to 5.2(5) I'll have to do a multi hop upgrade from 4.2(4) - 4.2(6) - 5.2(5) and each hop would take 40-60 I spend 40-60 minutes for each hop, or just do a disruptive upgrade straight from 4.2(4) to 5.2(5)? Like I said, we are fine with an outage window.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Creating VPC On Single Nexus 7010?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Management Interface On Nexus 7010?

Apr 28, 2013

We have a couple of Nexus 7010's split into Core and Distribution VDCs. MGMT0 interfaces on each of the Nexus VDC's (including the Admin VDC) are configured with different IP address, but on the same subnet i.e for admin, for Core and for Distribution. The MGMT 0 physical port on each Nexus is connected to a physical gig port on a 3750 X switch, and the 3750X has uplinks back to the Nexus configured for vPC.
When i ssh to the VDC MGMT0 IPs from the 3750X, i can access each of these VDCs without any problems. But if i enable routing on each of these links(OSPF) and advertise it to the WAN, i cannot see these routes advertised and also cannot see any of these routes in the local routing table.Just wondering if i have to enable these links on a VLAN and then advertise it to the WAN..But if this the case, VLANs cannot be created  on the Admin(default VDC).

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Nexus 7010 And Connection With EIGRP

Mar 20, 2012

We have, for nearly 4 years, used EIGRP on our 6513 to  make use of two unequal links to our branch offices.  This worked because we could use the variance command and cause EIGRP to insert two routes into the table, one from each carrier.  Thus it was we could balance the load to each one with a ratio similar to the ratio of the bandwidth of Link A to Link B.
We just purchased 2 Nexus 7010's to replace our single 6513 core.After much consternation we have found from our Ciscio SE that the Nexus 6.0.2 software rendition of EIGRP does not support variance. 
Why would Cisco take their own propriatary protocol and then gut it by removing features?  I'm quite ready to send these Nexus boxes back in favor of a newer 6500 series.  MEC doesn't work like it is supposed to and the show-tech runs for over 24 hours without ever finishing (and this we can repeat on both boxes, multiple times).
We've opened a tac case but I just wondered for any work around for the 'variance' command?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Nexus 7010 / Multiple VPCs Benefits?

Mar 30, 2012

I have a senario where i'm going to have 2 Nexus 7010 connected as a core, and i'm going to have 4 5510's connected in a star formation. Each nexus 5510 will connect to the nexus core Via two 10Gb links. Each nexus 5510 will have 2 links attached to The core switches in vPc's.
Nexus 7010-1 = Core 1
Nexus 7010-2 = Core 2 
Nexus 5510-1 = vPC = 100 2 Ports in vPc 100 -- > 7010-1, 7010-2
Nexus 5510-2 = vPC = 200 2 Ports in vPC 200 -- > 7010-1, 7010-2
Nexus 5510-3 = vPC = 100 2 Ports in vPc 300 -- > 7010-1, 7010-2
Nexus 5510-4 = vPC = 200 2 Ports in vPC 400 -- > 7010-1, 7010-2
The way I intend to configure the vPC's is this the best way. If i get a vPC dual active scenario what would happen. All ports will be forwarding all VLAN traffic this is how I intend to have it work.
