Configuring Trunking for Link Aggregation (LAG)


 

Informational Note:  You must create unique names for each VLAG.

To configure a trunk for aggregating the links connected to ports 1, 2, 3, use the following steps:

1. Create a trunk called trunk-1 on ports 1, 2, 3, enter the following command:

CLI network-admin@switch > trunk-create name trunk-1 port 1,2,3

To verify the configuration, use the trunk-show command:

CLI network-admin@switch > trunk-show

name           port       speed   autoneg    jumbo

--------       -----      ------  -------    ------

trunk-1        1-3        10g     off        off

 

Modify the trunk configuration by removing port 2:

CLI network-admin@switch > trunk-modify name trunk-1 port 1,3

Verify the updated trunk configuration.

CLI network-admin@switch > trunk-show

name           port       speed   autoneg    jumbo

--------       -----      ------  -------    ------

trunk-1        1,3        10g     off        off

 

Notice that the ports have changed from 1-3 to 1,3 indicating that port 2 is no longer a member of the trunk configuration.

Delete the trunk configuration from the switch:

CLI network-admin@switch > trunk-delete name trunk-1

Verify that the trunk configuration is removed by using the trunk-show command.

High Availability

Netvisor OS switches automatically perform functions that ease your administrative burden. With high availability, switches in a fabric automatically detect other switches in the fabric. If multiple connections exist between two switches, they automatically create an 801.3ad Link Aggregation Group (LAG) between the two switches for resiliency and load balancing. Other features require configuration such as connecting one device to two switches, or if LAGs are desired between Netvisor OS switches and other manufacturers’ equipment.
