4800G IRF Configuration Guide

I have searched for a configuration manual for the 4800G series IRF configuration guide. I see a lot of stuff for the 5500 which is easy; however, I have been told the 4800G is different.

 

Can someone please provide a link to the manual that has the IRF configuration details and examples if possible?

 

Thank you

The H3C/HP 5500 is the same as 4800G (which was the 3com name).

Thanks for the tip.

 

I was told, by a reliable source, that it could be different. Would there be a case in which they are different?

Re: 4800G IRF Configuration Guide

Hi Robert.

 

As far as I know also, the IRF settings are the same in both models, with no special case. Take a look in this guide:

 

http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c02645768/c02645768.pdf

 

Keep in mind that the IRF ports have to connect to each other using different ID's. For example: IRF port 1 needs to be connected to IRF port 2 always, even when using just one physical port. If you join two physical ports in order to form one IRF port, you have to connect it physically to the IRF port 2 on the second switch in the same way.

 

In the attachment, follows the IRF config guide of the 4800G.

Re: 4800G IRF Configuration Guide

Please upgrade the 4800G to the newest SW-Version, that it will be the same. In old versions, the command was as following:

 

irf member x irf-port y port z

 

now its:

 

irf-port x/y

 port group interface ten x/1/z

Hi Manuel,

 

I'm having the same problem, too. But I got the point with the numbering.

But regarding the adviced firmware update I have some questions:

The latest version online for the 4800-24G-SFP is: S4800G-CMW520-R2202P15-S56

But I have a download from September 2011 when version A5500EI_E4800G_5.20.R2208_A5500EI_E4800G_5.20.R2208 was available.

Do you know if there were issues with this firmware release, because it's no longer online.

Or should we take the firmware upgrade from the 5500 EI?

Thanks in advance,

 

JoLa

I logged into the switch and irf-port is NOT an option.

Re: 4800G IRF Configuration Guide

Hi Robert,

 

what firmware release do you have?

Use "display ver" to display it.

If you have the stock firmware (2202) you need to use the first command Manuel posted ("irf member x irf-port y port z").

Before you can you this command you have to switch to system view (type "sys" at the terminal).

HTH,
