What are the Command to passtrough Customer-LACP through an Extremeswitch with sw 22.1


Setup: Point to Point connection with two Extreme x620. We have setup a VMAN for transparent Service.
Customer use LACP on both end that we have to transport from A-Switch to the B-Switch.
Now the LACP goes not trough by the Extreme with an VMAN?
Could somebody tell me how i can tunneling the LACP-Protokoll trough the Extreme for this customer !

Hello Pa Trick

If I am not mistaken LACP is only a point to point protocol. That means it can only go to the next switch and stop.

Even if you create a tunnel I do not believe you will be able to have a LACP communication go through multiple switches.

Hi,

try this:
entry lacp {
if match all {
ethernet-destination-address 01:80:c2:00:00:02 ;
} then {
redirect-port 22 ;
count cnt_lcap;
}}[/code]
add that ACL on the correct port and use the forwarding port in the redirect-port action (22 in the example). If you have a LAG, add one ACL per physical port. Do the return path as well.

Note you need to do this on every port in the path between the two user sites. This will allow the middle switches to keep the patch of the LAG group that they are not a part of
