LACP Across IRF

Just checking real quick, but I bet LACP doesn't work across an IRF bond. I have a StoreOnce 2620 setup with LACP connected to 2 A-Series switches on P1211P01. I can ping the device from the same subnet but I cannot ping it successfully from another VLAN. 

 

Port 1 is on 1/0/1 and port 2 of is on 2/0/1. Both ports are members of the link agg group. Jumbo frames and flow-control are on. Just looking for a quick answer on this. 

Thanks all.

Re: LACP Across IRF

Hi,

 

Please post config.

 

LACP is fully supported across IRF boards, this must be other issue.

 

To verify lacp:

dis link-agg summary

dis link-agg verbose

 

You should see both links are in selected state.

 

The fact you cannot ping from a remote subnet must be a routing issue, so we need more config (ip information, switch config, ports used) to help you with this,

 

Best regards,Peter.

Re: LACP Across IRF

Normally I would say you are right with the routing thing, but the device worked fine before I converted to an LACP config with the same IP address. Here is my config:

Re: LACP Across IRF

Here's a random Q: Do I have to use the following command when configuring an LACP group across switches?

 

> link-aggregation lacp taffic-redirect-notification  enable

Re: LACP Across IRF

I think I corrected the issue on my own after messing around with it all morning. Here's what I had previously:

 

#
interface Bridge-Aggregation1
description Uplink for HP D2D Device
port access vlan 5
#

 

 

I found a command about dynamic configuration so I changed it to this:

 

#
interface Bridge-Aggregation1
description Uplink for HP D2D Device
port access vlan 5

link-aggregation mode dynamic
#

 

Can someone explain to me why this helped?

Re: LACP Across IRF

Hi,

 

link-aggregation mode dynamic = use LACP.

So by default, when a bridge-agg interface is defined, it is a static link-agg (no lacp), so if the remote end has LACP turn on, then it is possible that the remote end is blocking (in sw) 1 of the 2 links ( since no LACP packet activity), which could explain why some traffic was not working.

 

The traffic redirect is only used between comware based switches, when ISSU is being doing (it will signal the remote switch  to stop using 1 of the links, since the unit will soon reboot for firmware update).

 

Best regards,Peter.

Re: LACP Across IRF

Your explanation was much better than the one I got from the HP Networking group. Thank you.
