    Link Aggregation - Alcatel Lucent

    trent9645 Novice

      Need help configuring Link aggregation between an ESXI 6.0 host and an Alcatel- Lucent OS6450-P48 switch.

       

      What I have done.

       

      ESXI Host:

      Vswitch0

      Load balancing: Route Based on IP hash

      Network Failover Detection: Link status only

      Notify Switches: Yes

      Failback: Yes

      Active Adapters: vmnic0-3

       

       

      Alcatel-Lucent Switch:

       

      I have tried both Static and Dynamic

       

       

      Static:

       

      static linkagg 2 size 4

      static agg 1/23 agg num 2

      static agg 1/24 agg num 2

      static agg 1/25 agg num 2

      static agg 1/26 agg num 2

       

      vlan 55 port default 2

       

       

      Dynamic:

       

      lacp linkagg 2 size 4 actor admin key 5

      lacp agg 1/23 actor admin key 5

      lacp agg 1/24 actor admin key 5

      lacp agg 1/25 actor admin key 5

      lacp agg 1/26 actor admin key 5

      vlan 55 port default 2

       

       

       

      I have also tried configuring the link aggregation group "2" to trunk vlan 55 but it didn't change anything.

       

      Currently, if I just have my regular config on my switch and plug all 4 wires in then I can still get to the ESXI host but I don't think it is doing any load balancing over the 4 cables. Once I configure static or dynamic link aggregation on the physical Alcatel- Lucent switch I can no longer get to the ESXI host unless I unplug all but 1 cable.
