asked on

Cisco vPC

What is the role of the Primary vPC & the secondary vPC when we enable vPC on Nexus.
1 Nexus normally is configured as Primary & the other as secondary.

The primary vPC device will not block it's associated ports if the peer link fails. The secondary will block it's vPC member port and the SVI's for any VLANs that are carried by the peer link.
