As you learned in Chapter 20, RIP is a distance vector routing protocol. This section describes how to enable RIPv2 (the default version on Cisco Nexus switches), validate configuration, and perform basic troubleshooting. Figure 21-1 shows routing between four Nexus switches—a topology common in today’s data centers. You will use this topology to configure RIPv2 in two ways:
RIPv2 enabled via routed interfaces
Based on SVI being enabled as the Layer 3 interface for routing protocol participation.
