Description (partial)

When using a Nexus 9508 and vPC peer-links created on different modules, the STP status of the vPCs change to BLK and then FWD when one of the modules is shut down.

 VPC peer-link : 1/35,1/36,2/35,2/36 on both N9Ks

With the above topology, if the customer shutdown module 2 in N9508#1, N9508#2's Po212 STP status is changed BLK and then remained as BLK.

To recover this, partner tried to do following thing on N9508#1.
> > - no spanning-tree vlan 16

Additionally, after recovering this issue, partner tried to do shutdown the slot2 in N9508#1 several times..
then the #2 chassis port-channel STP status was changed BLK and then FWD by itself in short.
