Description (partial)

<br>In inter MST domain topology, after one of Nexus 5000 reloaded, you may notice ~30 seconds of traffic loss. <br>This is happening, due to fact, that right after boot up, VPC Peer-link moved over BLK->LRN->FWD states. 
<br>Before assuming this defect, please read conditions carefully

<br>Problem happens only under next conditions: 
<br>*** VPC pair should be a part of MST region A, while upstream chassis should be in MST region B; 
<br>*** VPC pair in MST A, should be connected to MST B over orphan ports; 
<br>*** CIST root should be in MST region B, hence one of upstream ports on VPC peer, will be in Altn/BLK state.
