Information

 
TitleERS 8600 :SMLT over LACP not coming up.
Symptoms

SMLT over LACP not coming up with when configuring with any of the third part device like Cisco, NetApp, HP.

SMLT remains in norm state.

Environment
SW : All release
Cause

There could be many cause of this behaviour.

  • While configuring LACP we need to take special care of the situation where LACP misconfiguration may cause loop over the link and STP puts one of link in discarding state.
  • On ERS side make sure that we have the correct configuration(LACPkeys on ethernet interface and MLT) and wokring links(No FCS or other errors).
  • Even if you make sure to use the correct configuration, sometimes in LACP or any aggregation we face the situation where one side get aggregated and other side delays in aggregation due to some reason. This also causes the loop and puts down the redundant links. We must ensure the STP status of the links in case LACP not comming up.
Resolution

 

Below is the configuration issue found with one of the customer:
For reference:
Duplicate LACP key for two separte LAGs.

ethernet 2/19 lacp key 13 

ethernet 2/26 lacp key 13 
ethernet 2/28 lacp key 13 

After changing the LACP key of seprate LAGs, this started to work.
