I am trying to configure ether channel between a Huawei 3300 switch and a linux server. I found out that i needed to use lacp as it supports interoperability between different types of hosts. i followed huawei's guide for forming ether channel. However when i do the configuration the ethernet goes down and the device becomes unpingable.
On the Linux side, the configuration looks like this:
alias bond0 bonding
BONDING_OPTS="mode=4 miimon=100 lacp_rate=1"
Check your linux server if it supports port-channel(etherchannel) compatibility
To site examples
If you have VMWare Hypervisor, it supports cisco's mode ON setting
if you have Windows Hyper V, it supports LACP, in which LACP is a standard followed by many devices
