HPE 5900 LACP configuration / BAGG Example

HPE Bridge aggregation (BAGG) is method of combining multiple physical connection into one single virtual interface increase the throughput.

To Create Bridge aggregation (BAGG) following steps need to be considered

1.Create a  Bridge aggregation interface , by default it takes static aggregation group

[5900]interface Bridge-Aggregation 10

[5900-Bridge-Aggregation10] link-aggregation mode dynamic

2. We need associate the interfaces which needed to be part of BAGG . Once you associated the physical interface, you need to make changes only on bridge aggregation interface

[5900]interface GigabitEthernet1/0/48

[5900-GigabitEthernet1/0/48]port link-aggregation group 10

[5900]interface GigabitEthernet1/0/49

[5900-GigabitEthernet1/0/49port link-aggregation group 10

3.Pass the vlan on BAGG interface

[5900]interface Bridge-Aggregation 10

[5900-Bridge-Aggregation10]port link-type trunk

[5900-Bridge-Aggregation10]port trunk permit vlan

To verify the BAGG / Link-aggregation,

For successful bridge-aggregation the flags ACDEF must match with remote interface.
