VPC for ESXi-1 & ESXi-2

The collective goal of labs 3 is to create VPCs between Leaf1 (node-101) and Leaf2 (node-102) in order to connect to servers ESX-1 and ESX-2.

Physical Topology:

Solution :  There will be a series of elements which need to be created first before we can create the VPCs. The steps are:

  • Create Interface Policies
  • Create Interface Policy Group
  • Create Interface Profiles (interface selectors)
  • Create Switch Profile
  • Create VPC Explicit Protection Group

Create Interface Policies

  • From the main menu, choose “Fabric”
  • From the sub-menu, Choose “Access Policies”
  • From the left menu, expand “Interfaces Policies”
  • Then, expand “Policies” to show a list of policies that are available to be configured

Creating Link Level Policy

  • Highlight “Link Level” and right-click. Choose “Create Link Level Policy”
  • A pop-up window will appear to create a Link Level Policy

  • In the Create Link Level Policy Dialogue box. For Name, type “ten_gig”
  • For Auto Negotiation, choose “off”
  • For speed, click the drop-down and choose “10 Gbps”
  • Click “Submit”

Create LLDP Policy

From the Interface Policies section, highlight “LLDP Interfaces”, right click and choose “Create LLDP Interface Policy”

  • A pop-up window will appear to create a LLDP Interface Policy
  • For Name, type “LLDP-Enable”
  • The default for Receive State is already set to enable, we will accept the default.
  • The default for Transmit State is already set to enable, we will accept the default
  • Click “Submit”
