If I have load sharing enabled on 1:4,2:4 with 1:4 as master.

Do I need to put all vlans as tag on both 1:4 and 2:4
Or should I allow all vlans as tag on only master port 1:4

1:4,2:4 are ports of one core connecting to other core 1:4,2;4.

Hello Sai

Once you have a Load share enabled you just add the master port to the VLAN.  The other ports will not show up.

Hope that helps

Could you please share the output for the command below on both core-a and core-b:

Hello Sai

Those are the correct commands.  can you share the output you saw when it shows 1:4 tagged on one core and 1:4,2:4 on the other switch?

Also can you do a show port 1:4,2:4 info detail on both switches and post it?

Thanks

I agree it looks like a valid config.  If you do a show VLAN for the ones tagged on those ports you should just see port 1:4 added as tagged with a little g showing it is shared.  If that is the case I think you are fine.

You need to associate master port 1:4 alone to all vlans.
