The network I’m working on has a Cisco 6509 that is directly connected to 2 data center Nexus 7009 devices. OSPF is being used on the loopback and a vlan to communicate with the Nexus 7009 devices. On the 6509 switch BGP is configured and neighbored with core 6513 devices upstream from the Nexus 7K devices. I want to take routing off of the 6509. There is a Virtual Port Channel L2 going from the Cisco 6509 to the Nexus 7K devices. No other devices (router or switches) are connected to this 6509 except a few servers connected directly to ports on the 6509. I want to have L2 handle all the traffic to and from the servers and get rid of the routing.
I’m wanting to know what type of issues I could have by removing the OSPF routing and then possibly removing the BGP after that.
I would think that the layer 2 VPC going from the 6509 to the Nexus 7K switches would handle all the traffic better then OSPF over the L2 VPC. OSPF is running on the Nexus 7K devices upstream to the Cores that are running OSPF and BGP.
Note: Routing is not supposed to be done over a VPC and that is why I'm wanting to get rid of the routing.
