VSF mit HP Aruba 5406 and Trunk

We have a network with 2 Core HP switches configured as VSF.
Each switch has an identical design.

All access switches are redundantly connected
(e.g. Core1 - Port 1/A1 and Core2 - Port 2/A1)

LACP and Trunk is configured for 1/C11 and 2/C11
(trunk 1/C11,2/C11 trk26 lacp)

Currently 4 VLANs are defined:

vlan 1
   name "DEFAULT_VLAN"
   no untagged 1/A1,2/A1
   untagged

When connecting a server via trunk e.g. to TRK133
the switch blocks the ports immediately. We've already changed all our attitudes
and the result is always without success.

We can't understand why
a) the trunks between the VSF core and access switches work and
b) the trunks between the VSF core switches do not work !!!!

Sorry, to me isn't clear: are you dealing with a pair of VSF (so 2+2 Aruba 5406R zl2) or are you dealing with only two Aruba 5406R zl2 deployed into one VSF?

Can you provide a clear image of your Network Topology? How VSF was setup (VSF Links)?

AFAIK, when you play with VSF exactly as when you play with a standalone Switch, both LACP Trunking configuration done against an Access switch and LACP Trunking configuration done against a physical Server is done on the VSF in the same way you do it on the Access Switch (permitted VLANs considerations apart)...clearly on the physical Server your NIC must support IEEE 802.3ad LACP bonding of its ports.

Re: VSF mit HP Aruba 5406 and Trunk

Thank you for your quick reaction.
There are only 2 HP Aruba 5406 core switches.
The servers are HP DL380 Gen 8 servers and also have original HP network cards
Since LACP seems to work on the access switches (Aruba 2930F)
and not with the servers, we don't understand the situation.
Here the configuration of the two switches and setup of VSF.

Re: VSF mit HP Aruba 5406 and Trunk

Have you any idea to solve our problem !

Re: VSF mit HP Aruba 5406 and Trunk

Hello! the VSF configuration looks good to me (I too have a pair of Aruba 5406R zl2 deployed as VSF).

What I don't understand instead is the status of your server facing trunk Trk133 ports (aggregated links).

Can you show us the output of commands listed below with regards to Trk133 (six interfaces [*] uplinked to your HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen8 server)?

  • show lacp
  • show lacp local
  • show lacp peer
  • show lacp counters

As I understood that Trk133 is untagged in VLAN Id 1.

I expect to see a IEEE 802.3ad LACP compatible configuration - server side - on those six NICs' ports.

Can you provide a proof of having done that too server side?

I would also consider to test the update to KB.16.05.0009 from your KB.16.05.0004 your VSF is running on...since there were corner case fixes related to LACP and SFP Transceivers that could have been eventually kicked in.

[*] Trk133 is done using six ports equally distributed on both VSF Members: 1/A18, 1/A19, 1/A20, 2/A18, 2/A19 and 2/A20.

Re: VSF mit HP Aruba 5406 and Trunk

Good morning,

TRK133 is in VLAN1 (default) and the output of "show tech all" contains

vlan 1
   name "DEFAULT_VLAN"
   no untagged 1/A1,2/A1
   untagged
 1/A2-1/A12,1/C12-1/C24,1/D1-1/D24,1/E7,1/F1-1/F7,2/A2-2/A12,2/C12-2/C24,2/E7-2/
E8,2/F1-2/F7,Trk101-Trk124,Trk130-Trk135
   tagged Trk10-Trk26
   no ip address
   exit

 

LACP is configured on the server side.
We also have the strange situation that sporadically when a server is rebooted
the two TrunkPorts on the VSF Switch turn on and off and after a few seconds
minutes (see Appendix).
During this period, data backups are run and there is probably a
higher load.
Could the problem also be related to the VLANs?
Currently all servers are still running on the default VLAN VLAN1 !

Here the editions of the commands

reported System ID with 000000-000000 are unused / unconnected Port Trunks.

Trk1 (1/C1+2/C1) is used to connect to an Aruba 5412R zl2. Trunks in green have Servers NIC ports configured with LACP as peers.

Re: VSF mit HP Aruba 5406 and Trunk

The servers are currently back on the old switch, because the system is used for production.
Therefore the ID is probably missing.

There is also a VMWare farm managed by an external service provider.
Each  of the 3 VMWare Servers DL380Gen8  have 8 network cards, 2 for management and 6 for the data network
(here  TRK131, TRK133, TRK135).
The customer assumes that the VMWare vSwitch is based on "iphash =source up IH hash". On Sunday we are on site, because the production does not work on Sundays.  
Should the V-Switch in the VMWare be set to "portid=Route based upon port id", so that the configuration in the VSG works with LACP trunk?

Re: VSF mit HP Aruba 5406 and Trunk

Here a thread I partecipated with regards to vSphere vSS/vDS and LACP Port Trunking:

https://community.hpe.com/t5/Web-and-Unmanaged/HP-1810-24G-non-procurve-and-ESXI-vSphere/m-p/6992165

Notice that to use LACP you must deploy - or have yet - a vDS (Virtual Distributed Switch) vSphere side.

Usual vSS doesn't support LACP...so you're pretty much limited by VMWare.

Your Port Trunks are untagged into VLAN Id 1 so, as far as that is also replicated Server side...it should be OK.

Don't understand exactly the interlink you drawed on your network topology between 2530! Will it be a loop? considering they're uplinked to your VSF (at least if VLANs are the same between them).

In case of 2930F (stacked) there is not this issue since - I mean - the interlink is just the representation of the Stacking you probably did. Isn't it?
