Can anybody clarify the following questions, If w:e enable LACP or Etherchannel between 2 switches (A and B) composed of 4 links (in trunk). If switch A receive a broadcast
- Will it send it by the logical port or each individual port? I assume it will send a copy through the logical port (meaining LACP will select 1 physical port according to its algorithm and send the copy throught it).
- When switch B receives the broadcast through the selected physical port (according to the algorithm), will it be intelligent enough to undertand it came from 1 of the ports pertenining the LACP or Etherchannel and will not send a copy of the broadcast back to switch A (sort of split horizon mechanism)?
I might be facing a situation where I will need to shut down spanning-tree in specific vlan that will be part of the trunk in LACP mode and would liket to confirm how LACP behaves when dealing with broadcasts.
