I need to set up a network as shown in the diagram. Core is the Voss system, Access is the Exos system, and my core layer uses SPBM and VRRP technology for redundancy. The core and access are interconnected through SMLT technology. In my actual application, I found that when I disconnect an uplink, my access network is disconnected and cannot be restored until 20 packets are discarded and restored to normal. What is the reason for this?

Here is my core configuration script:


interface loopback 1

The following is the configuration script I connected to:

create vlan vlan11 tag 11
create vlan vlan12 tag 12
create vlan vlan13 tag 13

configure vlan vlan11 add nsi 1000011
configure vlan vlan12 add nsi 1000012
configure vlan vlan13 add nsi 1000013

enable stpd s0 auto-bind vlan vlan11
enable stpd s0 auto-bind vlan vlan12
enable stpd s0 auto-bind vlan vlan13

enable sharing 59 grouping 59-60
configure fabric attach port 59 authentication enable
configure fabric attach ports 59 authentication key HSBC
configure fabric attach port 60 authentication enable
configure fabric attach ports 60 authentication key HSBC

configure vlan vlan11 add ports 59 tagged
configure vlan vlan12 add ports 59 tagged
configure vlan vlan13 add ports 59 tagged

configure vlan vlan11 add ports 27-44 untagged

you should only be losing 1 ping or 3 at most. 

1- Make sure STP is disabled on your SMLT ports.

no spanning-tree mstp force-port-state enable.

2-  on your EXOS switch.  Make sure the Group algorithm is set to L2. 

https://extreme-networks.my.site.com/ExtrArticleDetail?an=000074233&q=EXOS%20shared%20group%20config...

 

3- Lastly.   SMLT from a VSP to Shared Group to EXOS is fully supported.

but for the absolute best results use LACP on the VSPs and EXOS.

VSP/VOSS example

https://extreme-networks.my.site.com/ExtrArticleDetail?an=000083501&q=VSP%20SMLT%20LACP

Then on the EXOS switch set the shared group to LACP

Hello,

On the vIST side, the SMLT cluster switches, when SMLT is enabled on an MLT interface, spanning-tree is automatically disabled.

It is a SMLT design role to disable spanning-tree also on the other side of the connection to allow sub-second fail-over in case of link failure, when not disabled, spanning tree kicks in.

On the SMLT cluster you should use/enable SLPP (Simple Loop Prevention Protocol) which is designed to block loops in an SMLT network, on the EXOS switches SLPP-Guard is enabled on the access ports, never on the uplink ports.
Research the VOSS and EXOS manuals (and EXTREME site) for more information.

Okay, I'll give it a try.

Hi Pengguangjin999,

You should check the spanning tree status on smlt interface on both side (edge and core).

From your edge configuration, I don't see any stp disable commands on sharing port.

From core config, it should be automatically disabled when it move to smlt, so no config needed.

Can you try to disable and update here ?
