How to configure EAPS primary or secondary port, if this port belong to a LAG?


Hi, I'm doing a test lab, and I want to make a LAG to participate ein a EAPS domain and I noticed that you can put many ports as primary or secondary, so I was wondering if I have to put all the ports that belong to the LAG or I only put the master port,In case its only necessary to put the master port what is the purpose of the command to put a list port. Thanks in advance.

Once you set up sharing, you only need to add the master port to the EAPS config. For example, I have a client where we're running LACP on 1:47 and 2:47 as well as another on 1:48 and 2:48 (the 1: switches are the master ports). My Eaps config is pretty simple:

create eaps EapsCampusRing1
config eaps EapsCampusRing1 mode master
config EapsCampusRing1 primary port 1:47
config EapsCampusRing1 secondary port 1:48
config EapsCampusRing1 add control vlan V4001-EapsCampusCtrl1

config EapsCampusRing1 add protected vlan default

config EapsCampusRing1 add protected vlan V10-Lan1

config EapsCampusRing1 add protected vlan V11-LegacyLan1

config EapsCampusRing1 add protected vlan V60-WifiPrivate1

config EapsCampusRing1 add protected vlan V67-WifiProvis1

config EapsCampusRing1 add protected vlan V68-WifiGuest1

config EapsCampusRing1 add protected vlan V70-Voip1

config EapsCampusRing1 add protected vlan V79-Backup1

enable eaps

enable EapsCampusRing1

You only have to put the master port into either the primary of secondary ports. Not sure about the list as you call it as you can only have one master and one secondary port.
Thank you Erik and Bill, I will test it in a lab next week.
