IRF - Physical Port after Rebbot Down

Hi

 

I am using two HP FF 5700-40XG-2QSFP+ Switches and want to form an IRF fabric. Both Switches are running with the same system image.


System image: flash:/5700-cmw710-system-r2310.bin
System image version: 7.1.045, Release 2310

After I am done with the configuration the second member (standy) reboots which is ok and i see this log messages

 

Switch 1 (Master):

[*******-FortyGigE1/0/41]%Jan 19 15:16:37:370 2011 ******* IFNET/3/PHY_UPDOWN: FortyGigE1/0/41 link status is up.

%Jan 19 15:16:42:219 2011 ******* IFNET/5/LINK_UPDOWN: Line protocol on the interface FortyGigE1/0/41 is down.

 

Switch 2 (Member):

[*******-FortyGigE2/0/41]undo shutdown
[*******-FortyGigE2/0/41]%Jan 19 15:16:47:149 2011 ******* IFNET/3/PHY_UPDOWN: FortyGigE2/0/41 link status is up.

Starting......
Press Ctrl+D to access BASIC BOOT MENU

 

After Switch 2 finished the reboot the physical interface on Switch 2 which I use for the IRF link is administratively shut down and no IRF fabric has been formed

I have used the FortyGigE interface for the IRF link but this problem also occurs when i use the  Ten-GigabitEthernet interace.

 

thanks in advance

Re: IRF - Physical Port after Rebbot Down

Did you disable the physical interfaces before creating the IRF ports and then enable them afterwards? Here is the procedure we used for our IRF ring (on 5900 switches):

 

On member 1:

 

interface FortyGigE 1/0/53
shutdown
quit

irf-port 1/1
port group interface FortyGigE 1/0/53
quit

interface FortyGigE 1/0/53
undo shutdown
quit

 

On member 2:

 

interface FortyGigE 2/0/53
shutdown
quit

irf-port 2/1
port group interface FortyGigE 2/0/53
quit

interface FortyGigE 2/0/53
undo shutdown
quit

Yes, I did it in the same way.

Re: IRF - Physical Port after Rebbot Down

What do the commands "display irf link" and "display irf topology" give you?

Re: IRF - Physical Port after Rebbot Down

Hi Tomrazz.

 

Did you remember to save the configuration after you did the

] undo shutdown

on Forty 1/0/41 ?

and before the reboot?

 

Otherwise the switch will boot with the last saved (i.e shutdown).
