vsf on 2930F aruba switches (stacking)

Hello

I want to stack 2 2930F aruba switches with vsf. I did the following

Switch 1:

vsf member 1 link 1 27
vsf member 1 link 2 28
vsf member 1 priority 160
vsf enable domain 5

Switch 2: 

vsf member 2 link 1 27
vsf member 2 link 2 28
vsf member 2 priority 150
vsf enable domain 5

 While switch 2 was booting i connected the stacking cables between the switches. ( if followed  a guide)

 

I managed to stack the  switches: 

Aruba-VSF-2930F# sh vsf

 VSF Domain ID    : 5
 MAC Address      : 941882-c8a583
 VSF Topology     : Chain
 VSF Status       : Active
 Uptime           : 0d 0h 13m
 VSF MAD          : None
 VSF Port Speed   : 10G
 Software Version : WC.16.03.0004

 Mbr
 ID  MAC Address   Model                                  Pri Status
 --- ------------- -------------------------------------- --- ---------------
  1  941882-c8a580 Aruba JL255A 2930F-24G-PoE+-4SFP+ S... 160 Commander
 *2  9cdc71-364360 Aruba JL255A 2930F-24G-PoE+-4SFP+ S... 150 Standby

 

 

But when i check the links between them it seems 1 link down want to come up. i tried some different ways, but i always have the same problem: 

Aruba-VSF-2930F# sh vsf link de

 VSF Member: 1     Link: 1

 Port     State
 -------- ------------
 1/27     Up: Connected to port 2/28


 VSF Member: 1     Link: 2

 Port     State
 -------- ------------
 1/28     Error: No response from peer


 VSF Member: 2     Link: 1

 Port     State
 -------- ------------
 2/27     Error: Port connected to self


 VSF Member: 2     Link: 2

 Port     State
 -------- ------------
 2/28     Up: Connected to port 1/27

 

Does anyone also encounterd this problem and knows how to fix this? i stacked other stacks of 3 and 4 switches, and don't have the problem there..

 

All the help is welcome!

Re: vsf on 2930F aruba switches (stacking)

Shouldn't add/aggregate physical interfaces to the *same* logical VSF Port *and* (don't know if this is a general restriction as happens on two members only VSF as on 5400R zl2) just define only one logical VSF Port per member (especially if you're playing with just two VSF members in a daisy chain topology)?

Something like (Switch 1 and 2):

Switch 1:

vsf member 1 link 1 27
vsf member 1 link 1 28
vsf member 1 priority 160
vsf enable domain 5

Switch 2: 

vsf member 2 link 1 27
vsf member 2 link 1 28
vsf member 2 priority 150
vsf enable domain 5

Re: vsf on 2930F aruba switches (stacking)

Hi...

I have done VSF on 2930F series 2 no switch. I had created two links on each switch but only one link is showing up.

Config details:

vsf
enable domain 1
member 1
type "JL260A" mac-address e0071b-c3ddc0
priority 250
link 1 1/47
link 1 name "I-Link1_1"
link 2 1/48
link 2 name "I-Link1_2"
exit
member 2
type "JL260A" mac-address e0071b-c30c40
priority 128
link 1 2/47
link 1 name "I-Link2_1"
link 2 2/48
link 2 name "I-Link2_2"
exit
port-speed 1g
exit
trunk 1/31,2/31 trk31 lacp
trunk 1/32,2/32 trk32 lacp
trunk 1/33,2/33 trk33 lacp
trunk 1/34,2/34 trk34 lacp
trunk 1/35,2/35 trk35 lacp

Also after LACP, ports which is connected to LACP ports showing Tx timer is slow.

Re: vsf on 2930F aruba switches (stacking)

Hello

As you can see here above, only use link 1 and not link 2 if you connect only 2 switches. So you put your 2 interfaces in link 1.

Switch 1:

vsf member 1 link 1 27
vsf member 1 link 1 28
vsf member 1 priority 160
vsf enable domain 5

Switch 2: 

vsf member 2 link 1 27
vsf member 2 link 1 28
vsf member 2 priority 150
vsf enable domain 5  

 

Kind regards
