Nexus peering?


We have a single Nexus 5010 connected to a SAN and ESX hosts. We use a simple zoning config. We want to seamlessly add another Nexus 5010 and have an idea but would rather have a step by step as we want to do it live.

I know to peer them they need keep-alives and pretty much the same config on each, I'd just like to know if there are any gotchas or missing items other than matching configs and keep-alives?

Thanks again

Here is a good doc:


Specifically for the parameters you want to match between the devices:


I can't say this would be a seamless install through. Are you using any FEX's or are you ESX ans SAN connected directly to the 5K's?

ESX hosts are directly connected via FCoE to 5k.

Thanks I'll read the docs
Okay, so it shouldn't be that bad. If FEX's were in play, it would be much more to consider.
