Virtual Connect (VC) uplinks using Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP)

Oleg had a question regarding Multiple Enclosure Stacking (MES) configurations

 

*****************

 

Are there cookbook for multienclosure configurations available?

It’s not clear, how should I create vNets/Uplinks to get uplinks balanced, to keep traffic from going to TOR switches, and to maintain profile migrations available.

                Attached is possibly the latest MES cookbook from April this year.

 

Active/Standby should allow the best East/West or internal traffic flow of VLAN and networks.

 

You could include Enc#_Bay#_OS in the name of a profile to keep track of where it started and what OS/function it does.

That profile can be moved to any bay in the VC Domain(MES enclosures) that have like HW.
