HP A5500-48G EI IRF-port aggregation problem

I have two A5500-48G EI switches that I need to stack. I use two-port 10G modules and CX4 cables. IRF is established, and everything is ok while I use one connection between the switches only. As soon as I connect the second CX4 cable, everything stops working.

Actually, I would like to aggregate two physical ports for each irf-port. In the master switch 10G module is at module position 1, physical ports 1 and 2 are dedicated to irf-port 1; and in the slave 10G module is at positon 2, physical ports 3 and 4 are dedicated to irf-port 2. So, if I connect one cable between the irf-ports only it is ok, if I connect both cables, it doesn't work. I'm not sure if this config is right?

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

Could you please include the configuration on your switches.

Re: HP A5500-48G EI IRF-port aggregation problem

Hi,

 

From your configs I'm guessing you have something like this:

 

irf member 1 irf-port 1 port 2
irf member 2 irf-port 2 port 4

 right?

 

 

You should be able to list two physical ports as each virtual irf-port as this:

 

irf member 1 irf-port 1 port 1 2
irf member 2 irf-port 2 port 3 4

 

 

 

 

 

 

[lab]irf member 1 irf-port 1 port 1 2 ?
  <1,2,3,4>  Port can be used for IRF-port or aggregated with other ports as
             IRF-port
  <cr>

Re: HP A5500-48G EI IRF-port aggregation problem

thanks srg!

it is ok now. For some reason I beleived that I should enter two commands for aggregation (for two ports), i.e.

irf member 1 irf-port 1 port 1
irf member 1 irf-port 1 port 2

only just started with h3c... :)
