Re: Link Aggregation (LACP) on Aruba Controller Jan06-Tutorial

Hi Homero,

 

you said you have one port from the Aruba controller connected to one Extreme router and another port from the Aruba controller to a different Extreme router, right?

 

The config could vary as it depends on how the Extreme engineer configured the ISC VLAN (same Virtual Router or different VRs) However, you need to tell them that you want to do a MLAG between the two switches and the Aruba controller and ask whether the current configuration will allow you to do it or not.

 

I will send you tomorrow a config example.

Borja

Hi Homero,

 

This is an example with Extreme switches. Two ports from Aruba controller to Extreme DS1 and two ports from Aruba controller to Extreme DS2.

Re: Link Aggregation (LACP) on Aruba Controller Jan06-Tutorial

Hi, 

 

Thank you for the config from 4 ports from aruba to 2 switches (that´s is a good ideal config! ... but we need the config from just :( two ports of aruba (0/0/2 and 0/0/3 only) to one port in each extreme switch... (i don´t have more ports and gbic to use more ports in aruba and extremes so is like the "ISC basic survival/redundancy").

 

I try to upload the diagram in a quick .jpg file here where i can´t detail the config of the Extreme switches how they are interconected so isn´t the diagram... :P

 

Could you type what do the LAN Extreme Switch Manager needs to write in the Extreme switches?

Re: Link Aggregation (LACP) on Aruba Controller Jan06-Tutorial

Hi Homero,

 

No problem, just remove the second port from the sharing command.

 

So instead of "enable sharing 1:18 grouping 1:18, 2:18 algorithm address-based L3_L4 lacp" (this means that you create an aggregation of two ports 1:18 and 2:18) you should have

"enable sharing 1:18 grouping 1:18 algorithm address-based L3_L4 lacp" (only one port).

 

But please note that in your diagram there is a link missing between both switches. You must have a ISC VLAN running between both switches to carry the MLAG (Multi Switch Agreggation Traffic) traffic.

 

Ask your extreme engineer to also have a look into the Extreme Concepts Guide page 300 (MLAG) so he can understand it as well.

 

Configuration for Extreme switches below.

 

Extreme switch DS1

 

create vlan "SERVER-ISC-MLAG"

configure vlan SERVER-ISC-MLAG tag 3033

configure vlan SERVER-ISC-MLAG add ports 1:1 tagged 

create vlan example tag 160

conf vlan example add ports 1:1, 1:18 tagged

create vlan "WLAN-ADMIN-3094"

configure vlan WLAN-ADMIN-3094 tag 3094

configure vlan WLAN-ADMIN-3094 add ports 1:1 tagged  

configure vlan WLAN-ADMIN-3094 add ports 1:18 untagged  

configure vlan SERVER-ISC-MLAG ipaddress 192.168.33.1 255.255.255.252

 

enable sharing 1:18 grouping 1:18 algorithm address-based L3_L4 lacp

 

create mlag peer "DS-2” 

configure mlag peer “DS-2” ipaddress 192.168.33.2 vr VR-Default 

enable mlag port 1:18 peer "DS-2” id 9 

 

 

Extreme switch DS2

 

create vlan "SERVER-ISC-MLAG"

configure vlan SERVER-ISC-MLAG tag 3033

configure vlan SERVER-ISC-MLAG add ports 1:1 tagged 

configure vlan SERVER-ISC-MLAG ipaddress 192.168.33.2 255.255.255.252

create vlan example tag 160

conf vlan example add ports 1:1, 1:18 tagged

create vlan "WLAN-ADMIN-3094"

configure vlan WLAN-ADMIN-3094 tag 3094

configure vlan WLAN-ADMIN-3094 add ports 1:1 tagged  

configure vlan WLAN-ADMIN-3094 add ports 1:18 untagged  

 

enable sharing 1:18 grouping 1:18 algorithm address-based L3_L4 lacp

 

create mlag peer "DS-1" 

configure mlag peer "DS-1" ipaddress 192.168.33.1 vr VR-Default 

enable mlag port 1:18 peer "DS-1" id 9

Re: Link Aggregation (LACP) on Aruba Controller Jan06-Tutorial

Hi, we will test it.

 

meanwhile another comments maybe make more sense:

  • The fast diagram is updated here :)
  • The extreme guys tell me about EAPS and VRRP in the ISC between extreme switches.
  • I looked for "mlag" or "MLAG" word in the configuration file and does not appeared it (So no MLAG configured in the ISC between extreme switches and is confirmed).

I will update this when we test, any comment is welcome.

Best Regards.

Re: Link Aggregation (LACP) on Aruba Controller Jan06-Tutorial

Homero,

 

If you don't have MLAG configured on the extreme switches, they won't understand your LACP (as you are connecting one interface to one switch and another one to a different switch). 

 

 

I'll suggest you to test this scenario in the lab if you have a couple of Extreme Switches and one aruba controller or any other device capable to do LACP, as your main problem resides on the Extreme side.

Borja

Re: Link Aggregation (LACP) on Aruba Controller Jan06-Tutorial

Hi,

 

We did some tests in a LAB simulating the SITE (Big extreme switches with L3), IDFs (extreme switches with EAPs rings), and the controller 7005 (green). Something is missing the test fial l.  Redundancia Basica del Controlador Aruba Lab.png

 

By the way:

  • The port channel was up (admin and protocol) but no again something is missing.
  • In the production enviroment the blue lSC link will be the new config that extreme switches manager don´t have when we did it in production as i check in the COR switches config.
  • The extreme admin saw something in the config diferent of the extreme guide but he did the both ways (extreme guide to do the MLAG/portsharing/etc..) and doesnt works.

I have a open a case in TAC already and ill wait for the call...

 

Best regards.

Re: Link Aggregation (LACP) on Aruba Controller Jan06-Tutorial

Has anyone attempted this configuration between an Aruba 70xx controller and Juniper EX4200 series switch?

Are you having issues?


If this response is more than 1 year old, it may no longer be accurate. Please consult official Aruba documentation, TAC or your Aruba SE.

Re: Link Aggregation (LACP) on Aruba Controller Jan06-Tutorial

Yes, I'm testing this in the lab and seem to lose connectivity to the 7010 controller.
