IRF Mode Issue

Hi team,

           We are facing issue in HPE 6800 Router chassis. We need two  interfaces need to configfuraed for IRF for each Router chassis. but allowed one inteface for each router. Is it possible IRF configuration for two interfaces, please suggest on this.

Re: IRF Mode Issue

Hello Muthukumar1,

You may check the restrictions and further information about the setup on the following link:

https://techhub.hpe.com/eginfolib/networking/docs/routers/hsr6800/5200-3521_virtualtch_cg/content/index.htm

 

IRF physical interface requirements
IRF physical interface location

When you select IRF physical interfaces, follow these restrictions and guidelines:

  • You can use physical interfaces from the modules in Table 2 for IRF links on a member device.

    Table 2: Candidate IRF physical interfaces

    Module

    Candidate IRF physical interfaces

    SAP-4EXP(JG366A)

    The four 10GBASE-R/W ports.

    FIP-240(JH137A)

    The two GE ports.

    FIP-300(JG671A)

    The 12 GE ports.

    FIP-310(JG672A)

    The four GE ports and the two 10GBASE-R/W ports.

    SAP-20GE2XP(JH139A)

    The four GE ports with the highest port numbers and the two 10GBASE-R/W ports.

    SAP-28GE(JH138A)

    The 12 GE ports with the highest port numbers.

  • If you use ports on the SAP-4EXP(JG366A) module for IRF links on one device, you cannot use ports on other modules as IRF physical interfaces on the neighboring member device. If you do not use ports on the SAP-4EXP(JG366A) module for IRF links on one device, you cannot use ports on the SAP-4EXP(JG366A) module as IRF physical interfaces on the neighboring member device.

  • If the device contains a FIP-600(JG360A) module, you can use only the physical interfaces on the SAP-4EXP(JG366A) module for IRF links.

  • All IRF physical interfaces bound to an IRF port must belong to the same service module and operate at the same rate. The two ends of an IRF link must also operate at the same rate.

Hope this helps!

Re: IRF Mode Issue

Hi team,

                 Not able to add the two 10G interface for each routers. Initall can able to add the two interfaces but after conver the chassis into irf mode the chasis gone to rebot. after that verify the configuraion only one port can visible under IRF port. Please suggest on this.

Her we have two slots like as slot 2 and slot 3

We are taken one ten g interface from slot 2 and another 10 G interface taken from slot 3. but not able to acheve. Please suggest on this.

Re: IRF Mode Issue

Hello Muthukumar1,

Did you bind both physical ports to one IRF logical port on same on the another IRF port of the remote router?

Binding physical interfaces to IRF ports
To establish an IRF connection between two devices, you must bind a minimum of one physical
interface to IRF-port 1 on one device and to IRF-port 2 on the other.

 

As it is pointed in the prevois document I shared:

Re: IRF Mode Issue

Hi Team,

                Here two slots, now i am taking irf ports from each slots.  for ex..

Router1:

Slot 2---One tengi

slot 3---one tengi

Router2:

Slot 2---One tengi

slot 3---one tengi

 chassis before convert the IRF mode, configuraion has taken irfport 1 and 2 but  after convert the irf mode only has taken irf-port1 not 2. Even two interfaace configured for IRF-port after reboot  one interface only taken for IRF..

Re: IRF Mode Issue

Hello  Muthukumar1,

On router 1 - irf port 1, on router irf port 2.

On router 1 irf port 1 assign both ports from the two modules 2 and 3

On router 2 irf port 2 assign both port from the two modules 2 and 3

Hope this helps!

Re: IRF Mode Issue

Hi team,

             This configuraion taken but chassis after convert the irf mode, only one port taken. Opened the ticket for Tac team also and just now got the ack. from them. As per them  try to both physical interfaces under same slot not diferent slot. But we wants the irf port from difeerent slots. Sameting is working in HPE switch 5945 but challengin gon HPE 6802 router. Could you cross check once again and updae on this..

Re: IRF Mode Issue

Hello Muthukumar1,

This restriction I saw in the previous link I sent to you that the  physical ports should be on the same service module:

https://techhub.hpe.com/eginfolib/networking/docs/routers/hsr6800/5200-3521_virtualtch_cg/content/index.htm

Page:

IRF physical interface requirements

 

All IRF physical interfaces bound to an IRF port must belong to the same service module and operate at the same rate. The two ends of an IRF link must also operate at the same rate.

 

Also it si written on the full manual vitrual technologies p.10:

https://internal.support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/docDisplay?docLocale=en_US&docId=c04698869

All IRF physical interfaces bound to an IRF port must belong to the same service module and operate at the same rate. The two ends of an IRF link must also operate at the same rate.

You may confirm if this is the limitation you are hitting as you have opened a case already.

Hope this helps!

Re: IRF Mode Issue

Hi team,

     Yes, after configred all irf ports in same slots then started working fine. Thanks for your suggestion.
