Verifying the Member ID, Role, Status, and Neighbor Member Connections of a Virtual Chassis Fabric Member Device


Use this procedure to learn the current member ID, role, status, Virtual Chassis port (VCP) connections, and other information for the devices in your VCF.

Understanding the current member IDs, roles, device statuses, and VCP connections is required for routine monitoring of your VCF. You'll often need to identify this basic operational information to confirm a device or a VCP is working properly in the VCF, or how the VCF topology changed as a result of a configuration change or network error.


To display VCF status using the CLI:

show virtual-chassis (Virtual Chassis Fabric)


This output verifies that fabric mode is enabled and that all devices in the VCF are participating in the fabric, as shown by the Prsnt status output for each device.

The Neighbor ID and Interface outputs show that all VCPs are operating correctly.
