What is your present VC firmware ?
The info that you are asking can get in latest fw release notes.

Ohh.. 3.15 has lot of issues, every where it running fine either with 3.17 or 3.18.
Please refer the below release notes of 3.18 & plan to update it to 3.18.

In VC tunneling mode there is no limit to the number of VLANs that can traverse through VC.

Re: Amount of VLAN in Virtual Connect FlexFabric

not that I am aware of... VLANs greater than 1024 are considered extended range VLANs by cisco and may not be carried by default on trunk ports. That is something you might want to check for.

Do you have other VLANs greater than 1024 that are woring fine?

No, I have only VLANs with number lower than 1024 that is working.

Re: Amount of VLAN in Virtual Connect FlexFabric

are you connected to Cisco trunk ports?

if you do a "show interface trunk" you should be able to see if VLAN 2913 is active on the trunk.
