I am trying to get an aggregated (LACP) port group to work on an IAP-225 and so take advantage of a "potential" 1.3gbps
It is plugging into a HP Procurve switch 2626.
No mater what I do I cannot get an LACP trunk to come up.
The HP switch supports dynamic channel which seems to create an LACP group if a new LACP partner device if plugged in. This doesn't work after plugging in an IPA-225
I have also tried to create a manual LACP group or "trunk" as its called on a HP switch. Plugging in an IAP-225 in this configuration also does not work.
I have made no configuration changes to the IAP-225.
show lacp status always shows: "LACP not configured"
any ideas appreciated.

Also, try just plugging eth0 in then wait a few seconds, then attached eth1.

Interestingly i tried this on the other HP switch i had (now unavailable) and it seemed to work, plugging in eth0 came up as an LACP group then plugging in eth1 and it worked, however upon a reboot it did't re-negotiate the LACP link.
This HP switch wont even bring up the LACP trunk with just eth0 connected.
I have just tested with a dell switch and it "seems" to work as expected.
so its looks to be a HP compatability / configuration issue.
Is there somthing i can do on the AP to force an LACP group configuration on the wired ports, rather than leaving it all to auto configure?

I am getting nowhere on this. I have got it wokring on a dell switchbut not on this HP switch, and unfortunately the cleint has A HP switch.
Has no one had to configure the IAP-225 or any IAP with a LAG group configuration to a HP switch?

did you ever get further with this? i probably have to configure this in few weeks (unsure of the switch exact type, but HP for sure) so im interested in sharing experience. what firmware is the switch running?

You may be OK, I never got it working on the HP switch I had. TAC couldnt help me. I think i got it working on another HP switch but i wouldnt bet on it.
It seems ed to work ok on a dell too. But again i think if you start adding more than one AP to buikld the instant network, thats when it started to fail.
I haven't tried since the latest major firmware realese though!
