Re: VDX6740 - VXRail Setup!

Hi John,

 

I beleive your best bet to get this working is make sure that both the Nortel and VDX are running standard 802.3ad LACP on both sides of the LAG

 

Nortel side set to use LACP and not MLT

 

VDX set as follows:

interface TenGigabitEthernet 1/0/1
channel-group 1 mode active type standard

interface TenGigabitEthernet 1/0/2
channel-group 2 mode active type standard

 

mode on = Static LAG

mode active type standard = dynamic LACP

 

Regards

Mick

Hello Mick,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

See, that make more sense and I always thought to do it this way since the beginning, to use LACP on both switches as both vendor can understand it and can talk to each other, however, we were asked to use MLT's on the Nortel side instead and static lag was used on Brocade.

However, since you've mentioned this, the Brocade engineer have now came back and recommended the same (to use LACP on both end). I will test this shortly and will update the post.

 

Cheers!!
