LACP

Hi all, when talking about LACP, i believe this is a dynamic protocol, if I put say 4 ports in active state, its this as good as forcing them to multlink, like a fixed etherchannel config? so if I do show etherchannel summary, they will all show as up? or will they have to still negotiate with the other side ?

Re: LACP

LACP is a negotiated etherchannel. If it negotiates correctly all ports will show as up in the port channel.

Re: LACP

So what will happen if I put them in active mode ? is this not fixing the grou at one end? or do they stll need to receive a pdu from the other side to become part of the lacp group ?

Re: LACP

Active means it will use LACP as the bundling protocol . You can either have active on both ends or active on one end and passive on the other .

to hardcode the channel it would be channel-group X mode on
