Cannot set mode to LACP_AUTO in APA configuration

I have configured APA using 2 nics, lan0 and lan1 successfully, but only when the mode is set to manual.  Our network guys have LACP enabled switches and would prefer that I use LACP_AUTO mode.

 

Here is the command I used to create the link aggregate.  I had to use the MANUAL mode, if I put LACP_AUTO in there, the command fails and says invalid mode:

nwmgr -a -S apa -c lan900 -A links=0,1 -A mode=MANUAL -A lb=LB_MAC

 

So afterwards I then try adjusting the mode:

nwmgr -s -S apa -I 900 -A mode=LACP_AUTO
lan900 new values:
Mode = ERROR: Invalid value
Not valid to set attribute Mode as a Link Aggregate
parameter.

 

Any idea how I can get this set?

 

Thanks, Tim

Re: Cannot set mode to LACP_AUTO in APA configuration

Please show some more information first:

# nwmgr

# nwmgr -S apa

# nwmgr -g -v -c lan0

# nwmgr -g -v -c lan1

# nwmgr -g -v -c lan900

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Cannot set mode to LACP_AUTO in APA configuration

I figured it out Torsten, thanks anyway.  You cannot supply links when creating an LACP mode aggregrate, there are actually errors in some of HPs documents.

 

Lesson 2, smh is very tricky for setting up APA.  You are much better off editing the config files in /etc/rc.config.d manually and rebooting.
