Link aggregation 7005 vs. 54xxzl

Hi there,

I configured in a testlab our 7005 with ArubaOS 8.0.1.0 57205 (is there any newer out there?) with some AP315 and enterprise-WPA2 with RADIUS-Auth.

Everything is fine so far. Now I want to get this into production and for that I wish to aggregate all 4 Gigabit-ports to the main switch HPE 5412zl. 

Setting up a static trunk does not work at all.

Using LACS I was not really able to get it up and running again:

I can manage the controller, the APs do connect to master, they do broadcast the SSID - but connecting to that WLAN takes more than 10s and after beeing connected there is not really traffic flowing.

 

The configuration is as follows:

interface gigabitethernet 0/0/0

    description "GE0/0/0"

    trusted

    trusted vlan 1

    no poe

    no spanning-tree

!

 

interface gigabitethernet 0/0/1

    description "GE0/0/1"                          

    trusted

    trusted vlan 1

    no poe

    no spanning-tree

!

 

interface gigabitethernet 0/0/2

    description "GE0/0/2"

    trusted

    trusted vlan 1

    no poe

    no spanning-tree

!

 

interface gigabitethernet 0/0/3

    description "GE0/0/3"

    trusted

    trusted vlan 1

    no poe

    no spanning-tree

!

                                                   

interface port-channel 0

    add gigabitethernet 0/0/0

    add gigabitethernet 0/0/1

    add gigabitethernet 0/0/2

    add gigabitethernet 0/0/3

    trusted

    trusted vlan 1

    switchport trunk allowed vlan 1-4094

!

 

interface vlan 1

    ip address 192.168.0.254 255.255.254.0

!

 

!

no uplink wired vlan 1

no uplink enable

!

ip default-gateway 192.168.0.99

ip nexthop-list load-balance-gateways

 

I did manually set "lacp group 0 mode active" to the gigabit-interfaces which does not made any difference.

 

On 54xxzl-side there is only defined "LACP status "Passive""

 

Could someone give an advice, please?

Thanks!

Re: Link aggregation 7005 vs. 54xxzl

The way you currently configured is to use static

If you want to use lacp on the controller side you need configure it this way:

interface gigabitethernet 0/0/0
trusted
trusted vlan "VLANS"
lacp timeout short
lacp group 0 mode active
!
interface gigabitethernet 0/0/1
trusted
trusted vlan "VLANS"
lacp timeout short
lacp group 0 mode active
!
interface gigabitethernet 0/0/2
trusted
trusted vlan "VLANS"
lacp timeout short
lacp group 0 mode active
!
interface gigabitethernet 0/0/3
trusted
trusted vlan "VLANS"
lacp timeout short
lacp group 0 mode active
!

interface port-channel 0
trusted
trusted vlan "VLANS"
switchport mode trunk
switchport trunk allowed vlan "VLANS"
Thank you

Re: Link aggregation 7005 vs. 54xxzl

Hi Victor,

thank you for your input.

 

Meanwhile the only thing I did is rebooting the 7005 - and now config is shown like this:

 

interface gigabitethernet 0/0/3

    description "GE0/0/3"

    trusted

    trusted vlan 1

    no poe

    no spanning-tree

    lacp group 0 mode active

!

 

interface port-channel 0

    trusted

    trusted vlan 1

    switchport mode trunk

    switchport trunk allowed vlan 1-4094

 

(OK, the "switchport mode trunk" for port channel 0 I added just right now).

 

So why my config does not change reproduceable by 

#write memory

Do I really have to reboot the whole controller?

 

And I was wondering, too, that after my initial configuration via GUI just eth 0+1 did show "mode: PC-0" - eth 2+3 still were shown as "access".

Even after removing them from PC-0 and rejoining I had to change the state via CLI.

So the question is: is there any newer realease of ArubaOS than mine?

 

Thanks again - F.One

I cannot confirm that the things are now working as expected because I´m at home now and just connected via VPN.
