Howto mirror a mlag in an EAPS ring

    I have an EAPS ring with x670-G2-48X switches. Connected at the core there is a MLAG configuration.

    How can I mirror both links ?

    You could configure remote mirroring:

    https://gtacknowledge.extremenetworks.com/articles/How_To/How-to-configure-remote-mirroring/

    Or you can try our new L3 Remote mirroring if your using 22.4 and newer:

    Remote Mirroring Using Layer 3
    To use remote mirroring using Layer 3, enable IPv4 forwarding along the routed path to the device
    collecting GRE-encapsulated mirrored packets, also known as ERSPAN. Then, configure the collector
    device's IP address as the remote IP adddress in the following command:
    code:
    enable mirror {mirror_name} to remote-ip remote_ip_address {{vr}
    vr_name} {from [source_ip_address | auto-source-ip]} {ping-check [on |
    off]}]

    Hi Stephen,

    Yes, I found this document too. Only….
    When I create a mirror at the left switch, there is no vlan configured at the mirror port. According the document i have configure the vlan untagged to that port.

    I would probably use remote mirroring in the article i attached. It dumps the traffic into a mirror vlan you create. For the left switch you can use the below command.

    configure mirror to port 5 remote-tag
