IRF Configuration with 5 switches

Hi,

I've a problem with irf configuration between 5 switches. The log below is displayed in master switch:

%Dec  1 13:02:26:671 2016 H3C STM/2/STM_LINK_TIMEOUT: IRF port 2 went down because the heartbeat timed out.
%Dec  1 13:02:26:671 2016 H3C STM/3/STM_LINK_DOWN: IRF port 2 went down.
%Dec  1 13:02:27:679 2016 H3C STM/6/STM_LINK_UP: IRF port 2 came up.
%Dec  1 13:02:48:011 2016 H3C STM/2/STM_LINK_TIMEOUT: IRF port 2 went down because the heartbeat timed out.
%Dec  1 13:02:48:012 2016 H3C STM/3/STM_LINK_DOWN: IRF port 2 went down.
%Dec  1 13:02:49:014 2016 H3C STM/6/STM_LINK_UP: IRF port 2 came up.

When shutdown a physical interface in switch 4 or 5 the configuration is stabilished, however without redundancy.

I did the configuration in other topology with only 4 switches and correctly work.

Note: I'm using H3C Cloud Lab, switch S5820V2

Can you help me, please?

Re: IRF Configuration with 5 switches

Hello

Normally when your IRF config is the same on all switches, it should not be a problem to stack them. make sure to cross the cables.(irfport 1 from member 1 to irfport 2 from member 2 etc..)

Also dont forget to use the command irf-configuration active on all switches.

I also used h3c labs, and i think it is not the best tool to test IRF stacks. 

Kind regards

Re: IRF Configuration with 5 switches

Tks a lot!

Really the configs are the same of lab that it's ok.

I need to delivery a enterprise project with 25 switches and some it's stack.

It's my first job with Comware and i don't physical equipament for tests.
