LACP Over MEtro -E

Hi Everyone,

 

Has anyone configured LACP over layer 2 Metro-E from two different ISPs?  What is your configuration/best pratice?

 

I have two H3C 10500 R1205 link over layer 2 Metro-E.  I configured dynamic LACP, but it did not work, but it seems working ok with the default static LACP

 

What about LACP period for each interface member: should it be short or keep it at default?

Have you using this LACP in the production? Any problems?

 

Regards,

TN

Re: LACP Over MEtro -E

Your LACPDUs are probably beeing dropped at the providers, that's why it works statically.

 

I would probably try and find a different solution to this though, maybe two routed links with VPLS if you need L2 transport.

Fredrick,

 

Thanks for your expert response.

LACP static seems to work well, any disadvantages of LACP over VPLS?  I see all of the advantages of LACP such as simple configurations and lower cost; in addition, LACP 802.11ad is as old as earth... so it is probably more reliable.
