  • 1.  Enable LACP on DUAL port AP-535 in Mobility Master

    Posted Nov 17, 2023 03:29 AM

    Hello Experts,

    I would like to enable LACP(fast Rate)on 3 AP-535 in our Mobility Master (1 cluster with 2 controller 192.168.A.B-192.168.A.C).

    For this action in Huawei SW S5732 configured link aggregation and TRUNK them with LACP option (fast)

    in Mobility Master===>configuration===>AP Group and then LMS part I added IP address 192.168.6.x and Backup IP address 192.168.6.y 

    Do I need also to use this ==> 192.168.6.x and Backup IP address 192.168.6.y to add them in 

    Mobility Master===>System===>Profiles===>AP===>AP LACP LMS map information 

    ??

    This also the current status of AP-535

    I have added the current situation of AP-535 which extract from Airwave.

    The controllers should be deployed as a cluster.  LACP striping configuration is not necessary when the AP is connected to a cluster, this feature is only functional when connected to a standalone controller or standalone controller active/backup pair.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your hint. Then Aruba port mode in Active Standby is correct. Do I need to change it in SW ?

    The AP will operate in active/standby when dual connected by default, if you want LAG then configuration for LACP is required for the AP to bond the Ethernet connections.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your clear answer,

    I have configured our SW in right way, but still I can see in Airwave one port in Active Standby mode. Is there any way to change it?

    Look at the LAG status on the AP or the switch to verify functionality.  If the LACP LAG isn't operating properly, then you'll want to verify the configuration once again on both sides and then open a case with TAC if still not working.

    Thanks a lot for your help. this our SW configuration

    and in 2 controller I can Find this 

     
    (MC1) [MDC] #show lacp sys-id
     
    32768,20:4C:03:03:2D:00
    (MC1) [MDC] #exit

    That command is looking at the LACP settings on the Mobility Controller, not the AP.

    'show ap debug lacp <id-option> <id-value>' when run from a controller will show LACP information on supported APs.

    That appears to show a functional LAG.
