Example: Configuring Aggregated Ethernet Device with LAG and LACP on a Security Device (CLI Procedure)

 

Requirements

No special configuration beyond device initialization is required before configuring this feature.

Overview

This example shows the configuration of aggregated Ethernet (ae) devices with LAG and LACP.

Configuration

Step-by-Step Procedure

To configure LAG:

  1. Configure the number of aggregated Ethernet interfaces with LAG interface that you need to create. Set the device-count option to 5.
  2. Add a port to the aggregated Ethernet interface with LAG.
  3. Configure LACP for the aggregated Ethernet interface with LAG.
  4. Configure family Ethernet switching for the aggregated Ethernet interface with LAG.
  5. Configure the VLAN vlan20 with VLAN ID 20.
  6. Add the aggregated Ethernet interface to the VLAN.
  7. Check the configuration by entering the show vlans and show interfaces commands
  8. If you are done configuring the device, commit the configuration.
    Note

    Likewise, you can configure other devices with LAG and LACP.

Verification

Verifying Aggregated Ethernet Interface with LAG and LACP

Purpose

Verify that you can configure aggregated Ethernet interfaces with LAG and LACP.

Action

From configuration mode, enter the show lacp interfaces to view the LACP interfaces.

From configuration mode, enter the show vlans command to view the VLAN interfaces.

From configuration mode, enter the show interfaces (interface name) command to view the status of the ge-2/0/1 and ge-2/0/2 interfaces.

Meaning

The output shows the aggregated Ethernet Interface with LAG and LACP is configured.
