We will be using the same settings as we did in the Switch diagnostics recipe in Chapter 9, Troubleshooting ACI.
- Log into the controller with the credentials defined during installation.
- First, we need to name our switches:
apic1(config)# system switch-id TEP-1-101 101 Leaf-1 pod 1 apic1(config)# system switch-id TEP-1-102 102 Leaf-2 pod 1 apic1(config)# system switch-id TEP-1-103 103 Spine-1
These commands select the nodes as seen by the fabric (the "TEPs"). We give each one a switch ID, so TEP-1-101 gets the switch ID 101. We then name the switches and select the pod to which they are assigned. By default, the system will use pod 1, so we do not have to add this ourselves, as you can see with Spine-1.
