Use LACP channeling not PAgP which is Cisco proprietary.


Instead of "channel-group N mode on", use "channel-group N mode active" or channel-group N mode passive".

Hi

Can you please check this config


interface range gigabitethernet 5/6 - 7

channel-group 2 mode active

end

!

interface gigabitethernet 5/6

switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q

switchport mode trunk

channel-group 2 mode active

!

interface gigabitethernet 5/7

switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q

switchport mode trunk

channel-group 2 mode active


Is that enough.

That's fine. You should be good to go with this config. Make sure that you configure the juniper firewall ports as the L2 trunks also.
