LACP-Block with Cisco Switch and Aruba OS CX

    Running a VSX with version 10.07.0010 with a MC-LAG to a Cisco and the LACP-Blocking on the interfaces.

    Are there any proven commands for MC-LAG with Cisco VSS?

    At the moment we have Channel-group mode active and lacp mode active but the port is blocked on the Aruba

    Nothing appears in the debug lag lacp protocol either?

    Any ideas

    AP.

    Have you made sure that LACP is running on that LAG (Aruba Side)?

    Thanks, 
    Yes, the members show in the show lacp interfaces command

    When I use the lacp fallback they move to state IE

    I thought there might have been a proven config for VSX MC-LAG with Cisco switches, 
    I guess it might be the side, i was hoping somebody would say, "we've had no issues and these are our commands etc."

    Here is an example of a LAG interface that I have working with LACP on a VSX Pair (Multichassis LAG)

    Config on each chassis
    interface lag 18 multi-chassis
    no shutdown
    description Uplink to Cisco
    no routing
    vlan trunk native 100 tag
    vlan trunk allowed 1-2,7,11,30,50,52,66,90,100
    lacp mode active
    qos trust dscp
    spanning-tree bpdu-guard
    spanning-tree tcn-guard
    spanning-tree port-type admin-edge

    Port 1/4/1 on each chassis
    interface 1/4/1
    no shutdown
    mtu 9198
    description Uplink to Cisco
    lag 18

    Also (after the great example by Dustin), you could do a show lacp interfaces multi-chassis to verify local VSX node PoV (and also the remote VSX node PoV if you add the vsx-peer suffix at the above command) with regard to defined actor/partners' MC-LAGs status (Aruba VSX VSX-LAGs=MC-LAGs and peer Cisco VSS MC-LAGs).
    Is VSX status OK?
