LACP on a stack of XOS 15.3


I have pair of X450a-48T that are running XOS 15.3.3.5. Most of the release notes for 15.3 branch include an open issue:
"LACP process ends unexpectedly with signal 6"

What does that mean exactly and is this a serious issue? When would I run into this issue? Should I be using some other XOS version if I want to use LACP with X450a stack? I know 15.3 is the last supported version for X450a, is it better to go back to 15.2?

The LACP process ending simply means that the process crashed. This usually ends up in a reboot of the switch depending on the configuration. There is a recommended version of code for the x450a which at a quick glance appears to have fixed the LACP issues. This version of code was found in the link below:

I would review the release notes of this version and think about upgrading to prevent any LACP issues.

Thanks for the clarification. Unfortunately I don't have access to the latest versions as I bought the switches used.
