Port mirroring not working on distributed switch configured as LACP.

Jump to solution

I have read that Port Mirroring is not supported on Distributed Switch configured with LACP.

Is there another way to mirror ports when using LACP?

I read it here:

I have tested it, so yes I can use Port mirroring.

In the link it says:

" The LACP control packets (LACPDU) do not get mirrored when port mirroring is enabled."

Does that mean that I can use Port Mirroring and LACP on distributed switch, but only the control packets is not mirrored?
