    Link Aggregation - Clarification Needed

    getzjd New Member

      Just to confirm that if I am going to aggregate links between two 1534's, I would only need to make the configuration on one switch.

       

      For example.  SW1  and SW2

       

      SW 1 configuration

       

      interface port-channel 1

        description Uplink to .111

        spanning-tree bpdufilter enable

        spanning-tree edgeport

        no shutdown

       

       

      interface gigabit-switchport 0/20

        no shutdown

        channel-group 1 mode on

       

      interface gigabit-switchport 0/21

        no shutdown

        channel-group 1 mode on

       

       

      SW2 - ???   Default?

       

       

      Thank you in advance

          Thank you for asking this question in the support community.  Your configuration looks accurate for "SW 1," but link aggregation (LACP) needs to be configured on both sides (the command spanning-tree bpdufilter enable is not needed for LACP configurations).  Therefore, the configuration will need to be duplicated on "SW2."

           

          Here is the LACP guide for reference.

           

          I hope that makes sense, but please do not hesitate to reply if you have any additional information or questions in the future.  I will be happy to help in any way I can.
