BlackDiamonds 8806 Stack

I'm about to install two BlackDiamonds, both Cores are going to have a BD 8900-40G6x-xm to connect the devices, what I'm being ask is that both cores have to work as one device, just like a stack of summit switches. Is there any way to do this without using MLAG or VRRP?

Hi Cruz,

There is not an option in EXOS to bond multiple chassis like a SummitStack. The closest option would be to run these chassis as a pair of MLAG/VRRP peers.

Hi Brandon,

I guess I will use either MLAG or VRRP, since is not possible to bond chassis. Thanks for clearing my question.

Hi Cruz,

please note that you can use MLAG _AND_ VRRP together.
