Hi,

Has anyone had any experience with setting up MLAG between 2 Extreme X650 and 1 Juniper MX5.

So interface ge-1/0/8 and ge-1/0/9 on the MX5 connect into port 1 on X650 switch A (core1) and port 2 on X650 switch b (core2) using MLAG id 2.

The Juniper is sending LACP packets however not receiving any back from the X650s

Hello RigzThe current version of XOS does not support LACP with MLAG. That support will come in a version of code later in the year.P
