configure APA with flex10 VC

Hi all,

Let me explain my topology.

BL7000- BL860 with onboard 4nic connecting to flex10 VC with 2*10GB FC output going to cisco nexus switch.

Flex10 VC placed in Bay1 and Bay2

Network admin informed that they are using LACP protocol.

Now let me give my concern.

I am looking to configure APA with link aggregation and failover.
ie two NIC connecting to vc1 will link aggregate and the same with vc2 and then these 2 should be configured for failover.

Please tell me if this is a supported configuration. I tried to use LACP AUTO to do the link aggregation but only assigned ports shows LACP AUTO, but APA not enabling.

Any suggestions

Thanks in advance
Arun

One rule - you cannot LACP link aggregate across two different VC modules.
