LACP Aruba 3600 Ver 6.1.1.0 with HP H3C

Hello all,

Aruba 3600 Ver 6.1.1.0, HP H3C Ver S9500E-CMW520-R1238P08

I was successful configured LACP from H3C to another LAN switch, but when the LACP was connected to Aruba 3600, all wired users were quickly populated the “sh user” list; these users do not show when using non-LACP ports. Despite the long user list, the controller worked.
I can configure Aruba interfaces either Passive or Active mode the LACP link still active.

On Aruba controller :
(WC03) #show u
Users
IP MAC Name Role Age(d:h:m) Auth VPN link AP name Roaming Essid/Bssid/Phy Profile Forward mode Type
172.18.12.90 b8:ac:6f:3d:00:db logon 00:00:00 tunnel 1 Wired default tunnel
172.18.12.137 00:1e:4f:b5:f1:46 logon 00:00:00 tunnel 1 Wired default tunnel


(WC03) #show lacp 0 int

Flags: S - Device is requesting slow LACPDUs
F - Device is requesting fast LACPDUs
A - Device is in Active mode P - Device is in Passive mode

I don’t think LACP should behave like this. I appreciate all of your ideas.

You should make that LACP interface trusted.
