Configuration of Nortel 8600 core switches for Virtual Connect

Hi,

Anyone has experience with the network configuration that is needed for Virtual Connect to work. I found documents for Cisco & Procurve but nothing for Nortel.

Problem that we have is that we have 2 switches, each one goes to a virtual connect module.
We enabled LACP so when one of the switches fails, the other one takes over. But that doesn't happen.

I just would like to know if someone managed to get this configuration to work.

Thanks,
Erik

I got it working on the Dell PowerConnect 6248 switch. I can send you my port and channel configuration commands if you think that would help you out at all.
