Remote Mirroring Configuration

Hi all, 

 

I'm trying to configure a remote port mirror between a 5800 & 5500-EI without much success.  The remote probe vlan (960) is allowed between the two devices.

 

I've seen a document on the H3C site stating that I need to issue remote-probe enable in the vlan configuration, but this command isn't availble on my 5800.

 

also, the details of what the reflector actually is seem a bit thin on the ground.  Is this connected to the remote switch?  Is there any config that needs to be done to the reflector?

 

The source & destination switches are connected via an LACP trunk comprising of 4 x 1Gb interfaces.

 

Below is the configuration of the source device

 

mirroring-group 1:
    type: remote-source
    status: active
    mirroring port:
        GigabitEthernet1/0/23  both
    mirroring CPU:
        slot 1, 2  both
    reflector port: GigabitEthernet1/1/16
    monitor egress port:
    remote-probe VLAN: 960

 

below is the destination device

 

mirroring-group 1:
    type: remote-destination
    status: active
    monitor port: GigabitEthernet1/0/7
    remote-probe VLAN: 960

 

Many thanks.
