MLAG configuration for stacks

Hello,

I have two stacks, and i would like to build a MLAG pair
Each stack is composed of a Summit X670V (slot 1) and a X670 (slot 2)
To make the ISC link, i want to use a sharing of two links, and i was wondering if there is any recommandation about what ports to use for this link ?
Can i use 2 ports on the X670V switchs for the first link, and 2 ports on the X670 switchs for the second link ?
This would look like that :


If this is not possible and i have to connect the two links on the same switchs (for example Slot 1 <=> Slot 1), i could have the situation where one of these switchs fails (let's say for example Slot 1 on the left has a power outage), so the MLAG is broken (split brain) but i still have dual-attached devices (servers, routers) that are dual-attached to the two "Slot 2" switchs and then continue to think the MLAG is up

Thanks in advance for tour advice

Hi Gabriel,

Yes this is entirely possible, just create a sharing group on each stack with members in either switch, for example:

On switch 1: enable sharing 1:1 grouping 1:1, 2:1 algorithm address-based l3_l4
on switch 2: enable sharing 1:1 grouping 1:1, 2:1 algorithm address-based l3_l4

Then connect ports 1:1 on each stack and 2:1 on each stack.

Cheers
