    Server lacp

    dellpe

      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:

      cat /etc/modprobe.d/bond.conf

      alias bond0 bonding 

       

      cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-bond0

      DEVICE=bond0

      ONBOOT=yes

      USERCTL=no

      BOOTPROTO=none

      NM_CONTROLLED="no"

      IPADDR=10.76.161.135

      PREFIX=21

      IPV4_FAILURE_FATAL=yes

      IPV6INIT=no

      NAME="System bond0"

      BONDING_OPTS="mode=4 miimon=100 lacp_rate=1"

       

      cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

      DEVICE="eth0"

      BOOTPROTO=none

      ONBOOT=yes

      MASTER=bond0

      SLAVE=yes

      USERCTL=no

       

      cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1

      DEVICE="eth1"

      BOOTPROTO=none

      ONBOOT=yes

      MASTER=bond0

      SLAVE=yes

      USERCTL=no

          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
