    Hi
    I want to configure interface speed as 1000-full but it is deny me
    switch specifications

    SW# show system
    Hostname : SW
    System Description : FL.10.07.0021
    Vendor : Aruba
    Product Name : JL664A 6300M 24G 4SFP56 Swch
    ArubaOS-CX Version : FL.10.07.0021

    the configuration:

    SW(config)# interface 1/1/1
    SW(config-if)# speed 1000-full
    1000-full is not supported by this interface


    is there any way to configure it manually ??

    Thanks

    I think the 1/1/1 port is a SFP56 port. The first copper Ethernet port should be 1/0/1.

    Thanks for your Response Herman
    The interface Type is GigbitEthernet, not SFP port.

    the reason I want to configure it manually is that I want to configure LAG and I want to configure it as a Link failover
    I have two links from HQ to the MPLS one link (100Mbps) and the other (1000Mbps) I want to configure LAG but as link failover.

    My problem here is that the 100 Mbps Link acts as 1000Mbps in the switch Link but the ISP gives only  100Mbps, so when configuring the LAG it will distribute the traffic equally between the Links, I do not need this.
    so I tried to configure the speed manual on the interface as 100Mbps, after that I faced another problem that the LAG works only with the interface that is configured manually not with an interface with more speed or interfacefwith prefered priority, so I thought that I should try to configure the interface as 1000Mbps manually to test if it could work with me.

    Could you advise me, please?
    Thanks,

    For that scenario, did you have a look at the Smartlink feature (check here)? That seems to fit better to what you want to achieve.

    LAG only works between single devices, or devices that operate as a single device (VSF/VSX). From your story, you have two ISP links. Are these links transparent L2? Or L3? In the case of L3, you would need to use a routing protocol to make that work, not a LAG which is pure L2.

    Still don't understand why you can't put a built-in copper port to 1000-full fixed, think that should work. I found another 6300M, and on that the built-in interface I can't set 1000-full either. Please open a support case, as that seems not expected to me.

    For the Links it is L2 Links and yes I am using VSF 
     the topology now as shown



    I didn't knew smart-link before but. I will try it and see.

    Thanks
