As per Cisco documentation: A virtual PortChannel (vPC) allows links that are physically connected to two different Cisco Nexus devices to appear as a single Port Channel to a third device. The third device can be a Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extender or a switch, server, or any other networking device. A vPC can provide Layer 2 multipathing, which allows you to create redundancy by increasing bandwidth, enabling multiple parallel paths between nodes and load-balancing traffic where alternative paths…

Link Aggregation Control Protocol or  IEEE 802.3ad (LACP) is an open standard of Ethernet link aggregation protocol. It is a method used by routers/switches to automatically establish link aggregation groups or LAG ( sometimes called as channel groups, bundle or port-channels). Here’s LACP configuration examples for different Cisco platforms using LACP active mode, where it places a port into an active negotiating state and sending LACPDU (Data units) at regular intervals to seek out partners IOS (Catalyst 4500) Configuration: interface…

Objective: To configure port-channel and associate it to vlan. Servers will use Cisco-NXOS as their gateway and uplink to Internet. Server-switch have Layer 2 (access mode) connectivity to Cisco-NXOS router. (see Fig.1)  Fig.1 1. Configure the Vlan (interface vlan will be the server’s gateway) Cisco-NXOS# configure vlan 8   name Server-Farm interface Vlan8  description Server Farm Vlan  no shutdown   ip address 192.168.8.1/24 2.
