Question about: Procurve 5400 Trunk LACP Configuration with Virtual Connect

Howdy!

Hello,

 

We are having problems configuring an HP Procurve switch 5400 with Trunk/LACP in a Virtual Connect Configuration (Share Uplink Set).

In a single network with trunking removed from the switch it works fine but once we set the trunk and LACP mode on the ports, it does not work.

Host is ESXi 6.0, could not find an article that will help us configure this right.

Any assistance will be appreciated.

Dan provided a brief but thorough answer:

VC only supports LACP members that talk to the same VC module.  So make sure all members of Trk# come from the same Procurve and end in the same VC Module.

 

You cannot use LACP from the host to the VCs because you would be hitting 2 different VC modules.

 

Aside from that if you are in Dynamic mode (LACP) it should just work
