Teaming ports on 5900 switch

Hi All,

 

I am have a HP 5900 Switch. What I would like to do is team\bond two of the ports so I can connect it to my windows server which has a dual 10 gig card in it.

 

So on the switch I have configured the following:

 

interface Bridge-Aggregation13

port link-type trunk

port trunk permit vlan 1

link-aggregation mode dynamic

 

interface Ten-GigabitEthernet1/0/17

port link-type trunk

port trunk permit vlan 1

port link-aggregation group 13

#

interface Ten-GigabitEthernet1/0/19

port link-type trunk

port trunk permit vlan 1

port link-aggregation group 13

 

When I run the following command, display interface Bridge-Aggregation 13

 

Bridge-Aggregation13

Current state: UP

IP Packet Frame Type: PKTFMT_ETHNT_2, Hardware Address: 4431-9284-72b5

Description: Bridge-Aggregation13 Interface

Bandwidth: 10000000kbps

10Gbps-speed mode, full-duplex mode

Link speed type is autonegotiation, link duplex type is autonegotiation

PVID: 1

Port link-type: trunk

VLAN Passing:   1(default vlan)

VLAN permitted: 1(default vlan)

Trunk port encapsulation: IEEE 802.1q

 

It shows that it is only in 10Gbps instead of 20Gbps.

 

When I run the following command, display link-aggregation verbose

 

Aggregate Interface: Bridge-Aggregation13

Aggregation Mode: Dynamic

Loadsharing Type: Shar

System ID: 0x8000, 4431-9284-727c

Local:

Port             Status Priority Oper-Key Flag

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

XGE1/0/17       S       32768   1         {ACDEFG}

XGE1/0/19       U       32768   1         {ACG}

 

I see that the second NIC is unselected.

 

So how do I get the second port selected?? Or is this the wrong way of trying to team two ports??

 

Cheers!

Re: Teaming ports on 5900 switch

Do a "display int" for each of the physical ports - has one of them negotiated the wrong speed?

 

Otherwise, your Server end probably hasn't got 802.3ad enabled on its as part of the "teaming/bonding".

Thanks for the reply!  The problem was on the server.  Thought I had enabled it but it wasn't.
