Data Center Multi-Layer VPC design aggregation layer failure scenarios are depicted in this document. The tests involve a multiple VPC domain design with VPC extended from Core to Aggregation as well as Aggregation to Access. The Failure scenarios covered in this test document are the following

   * Failure of the Peer Keepalive link - simulated by the shutdown of Ethernet1/1 on AGG1 router
   * Failure of a single link in the Peer-link bundle- Simulated by shutting down either Ethernet2/1 on the AGG1 router
   * Failure of the peer-link port-channel- Simulated by shutting down the Port-channel 3000 interface between AGG1 and AGG2 routers
   * SFM module failure on Aggregation router
   * Supervisor Failure/switchover on an aggregation router
   * Linecard failure on the AGG1 router
   * Failure of an aggregation node


Verification of operation of VPC and its configuration using the following commands

   * show vpc brief
   * show port-channel summary
   * show port-channel traffic
   * show run int port-channel xxxx
   * show run vpc

ESTIMATED TIME 120 minutes
