Recently I was working on implementing HP VC Flexfabric for one of my customers, its straight forward to implement but I was in trouble with the following issue (But it’s not an issue:-))
I have created two SUS groups with 2 uplink ports ((B1X4, B1X5, B2X4, B2X5) attached to them. But while I was reviewing configuration which I have created, I found both of the SUSs are showing as “Linked- Standby”. I was surprised why both links are showing as “Active- Standby” even though I am implementing solution as Active- active at VC level. In the following screenshot, you can see only one uplink port per SUS but in my case I had two with the same symptom.
After spending bit of time to troubleshoot the issue, I realized that it shows as “Linked- Standby” until you create a VLAN as part of the SUS. I know it’s not a problem but I was freaking out why both ports are showing as Standby :-)
