Virtual Connect (VC) communication to another enclosure

A question from Sanyi:

 

***********

 

Can I connect two VC FlexFabric module in different C7000 chassis directly? I don’t want to put both c7000 in the same domain I just want to connect them without a switch in order to both C7000 could communicate directly with each other.

You can use this knowledgebase article.  It should help:

Yes but the VLAN/Network(s) you plumb can only be access by blades in both chassis.

You cannot bounce that network out another uplink and up to the customer’s core due to the way VC handles networks.

 

So vMotion, SQL Heartbeat, Oracle RAC, etc are all fine as long as all the members are blades.

 

When you setup the link between the 2 sides, you need to change the mode from Auto to Manual/Failover or whatever it says.

This way you can control which link they use to talk and which link is your backup.

The link is broken. It is possible to recover it or redirecting it.
