V Commands

This chapter describes the Cisco NX-OS interface commands that begin with V.

vpc domain

vpc domain domain-id

no vpc domain domain-id

 
Syntax Description

Modification

6.0(2)N1(1)

This command was introduced.

 
Usage Guidelines

You must enable the vPC feature before you can create a vPC domain.

You put all vPC interfaces, including the vPC peer link, on both of the vPC peer devices into the identical vPC domain. You must have unique vPC domain numbers within each VDC. Once you create a vPC domain, the system automatically creates a vPC system MAC address that is unique to that vPC.

You also use this command to enter the vpc-domain command mode in order to configure vPC parameters.

This command does not require a license.

Examples

This example shows how to create a vPC domain:

switch# configure treminal
switch(config)# vpc domain 5
switch(config-vpc-domain)#
 

This example shows how to enter the vpc-domain command mode to configure an existing vPC domain:

switch# configure treminal
switch(config)# vpc domain 5
switch(config-vpc-domain)#
